Job Description

Microchip has been consistently recognized as one of the best places to work by prestigious publications like Forbes, Bay Area News and Phoenix Business Journal. The FPGA Business Unit (formerly Actel, with a 35+ year uninterrupted legacy of providing programmable logic solutions) is one of the largest and most profitable BUs inside Microchip. We have revolutionized the FPGA industry with the industry’s most awarded FPGA families - the PolarFire FPGA family and the first RISC-V based PolarFire SoC, delivering class leading power efficiency, reliability and security. With this portfolio, we have enabled commercial applications like the world’s most innovative AI-enabled embedded vision and smart automation products, the world’s most secure and reliable 5G communications networks, as well as the world’s most sophisticated aerospace products that have delivered payloads to Mars and beyond. If you are looking to be a part of a team that is transforming the world of low power compute whilst delivering exceptional top line growth rates, you will be challenged to find a better place to contribute, grow your career and learn to deliver truly remarkable solutions.

In the Product Engineering New Products Group (NPI) this individual will be responsible for ensuring a reliable and manufacturable integrated SOC product. This individual will work with Technologists, Circuit Designers, Logic Designers (Customer), Applications, Component and Quality Engineers. The candidate will define product reliability experiments and execute product qualifications. They will also be responsible to drive resolution of manufacturing issues related to product shipments. Product Engineering within Microchip is a dynamic and unique group which focuses on new product rollout. It entails working with and servicing numerous cross functional groups daily and in a timely fashion. Employees within Product Engineering are given the opportunity to constantly collaborate with other engineers and execute the ideas and/or actions. Product Engineering is a good position to contribute to all aspects of product rollout, including silicon definition/design/verification, manufacturing logistics, test coverage, product qualification, yield improvement, and customer support.

Job Responsibilities:

• Hands on support for product reliability qualification related to 28nm Flash/SONOS based SOC’s.

• Applied product level knowledge for statistical, electrical, and physical root cause failure analysis pre/post qualification.

• Solving release to manufacturing related issues and driving corrective actions.

• Define qualification designs, developing hardware, verifying experimental test conditions, and performing data analysis.

• Supporting production test flows by defining test limits, analyzing test coverage, performing root cause yield analysis, and ensuring datasheet compliance.

• Validating on chip components such as micro-processors, high speed I/O’s (SERDES and DDR), eNVM, SRAM, charge pumps, PLL’s, and Analog I/O’s

• Develop software for verifying and testing FPGA/SOC products

• Analyzing device behavior of FPGA/SOC products in both a production and engineering environment.

• Characterizing and evaluating FPGA/SOC products in both a production and engineering environment.
