Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of embedded control applications. Our product portfolio comprises general purpose and specialized 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, 32-bit microprocessors, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) products, a broad spectrum of high-performance linear, mixed-signal, power management, thermal management, radio frequency (RF), timing, safety, security, wired connectivity and wireless connectivity devices, as well as serial Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM), Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories, and serial Static Random Access Memory (SRAM). We also license Flash-IP solutions that are incorporated in a broad range of products.
The successful candidate will apply their semiconductor experience to drive and coordinate the definition and implementation of foundation IP (IOs, RAMs, ROMs, Flash, Standard cells, etc.) for a wide range of microcontrollers and across multiple process nodes. Solid project management experience is also required.
- Understand divisional needs (technical, schedule, priorities) for all required foundation IP’s
- Coordinate requirements/specification/definitions/priorities for common IP’s across divisions, resolve conflicting requirements if needed
- Compile technical requirements documents based on inputs from divisions.
- Clearly communicate BU needs, IP schedules, priorities to upper management and suppliers (internal and external).
- In cases of internal resource limitations, find and drive external execution (other divisions inside MCHP, contractors, vendors).
- Stay in close contact with vendors and customers/divisions to coordinate delivery and communicate changing expectations.
- Manage and drive the delivery of the required/defined foundation IP
- Masters in EE with 10+ years’ semi-conductor experience.
- Solid project management experience
- Must have substantial experience in the definition/design, system integration, and applications of foundation IPs - memories (flash, ROM, RAM), IOs, and Standard cells.
- Must have a track-record proving a thorough understanding of the trade-offs involved in developing foundation IP in an area and power constrained environment
- Must be a team player.
- Must have extensive knowledge of low power analog design, and a significant understanding of how foundation IPs are used in SOCs.
- Must be capable of evaluating multiple topologies/architectures and drive practical trade-off decisions across teams.
- Must be able to understand the greater system, not just the component currently being developed – to address potential system level impacts early in design/definition process.
- Must have a high capability to execute practical decisions leading to production worthy designs.
- Must be able to function in a fast-paced engineering environment where they are simultaneously responsible for new foundation IP definitions/coordination and project managing existing projects.
- Experience in design of hardware, software, and/or firmware for microcontroller/microprocessor systems is a plus.
- Must be able to communicate well. Must be able to write concise technical documentation.
