Good to have –
From scratch RTL design for any/some of the following:
Note: IP integration of various components or modification of previously designed components (unless it is a major change that shows understanding for the below) is not very relevant
Complex state machine design
Memory subsystem with multiple banking multiple reports, crossbar connection to computing elements
3-D, 4-D descriptor based DMA controller with out of order responses
The DSP functionality knowledge, integer/float multiply – accumulate, and nonlinear functions such as sigmoid, relu, tanh, quantization, reduction
AXI4 fabric with out-of-order interleaved requests/responses (i.e. full protocol)
Tools: UVM, System Verilog, Perl, all Cadence front/back end tools
