ResponsibilitiesDescriptionSeeking a self-motivated, team-oriented board design engineer to develop Micron’s next generation Solid State Drive (SSD) products. This position requires experience in hardware architecture, design, signal integrity and power supply design. This would include modeling and simulation for high speed signaling implementations and power supply design including power distribution network (PDN) simulations. A successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of: state of the art memory device technologies, interfaces such as SATA, SAS, PCIe Gen 3,4&5, ONFI and implementation techniques required for high-speed interfaces. In addition, this candidate will have a good working knowledge of Buck and boost power supply designs – including PMICs. Experience with PCB design tools (Cadence PCB design and analysis, including Si/Pi). Expertise in the design for optimum signal and power integrity as well as hands-on lab experience. Duties and Responsibilities
Interface in cross functional teams to ensure the design meets all firmware, diagnostic and system level requirements.
Participate in architecture definition, design reviews, requirements generation of SSD products.
Perform basic Signal and power integrity measurements
Document and communicate results with cross functional counterparts.
Simulate and analyze design proposals, review results and provide recommendations on optimal design practices to other design engineers.
Experienced in designing hardware for large scale manufacture, including DFx and low cost considerations
Hardware design, worst-case analysis, simulations, capture schematic, de-rating and assumes complete ownership of the SSD hardware thru the product lifecycle.
PCB back-end process: defining stack-up and via technologies, part placement, setting design constraints, signal integrity and power integrity analysis
Works proactively with cross functional team members during design, verification as well as on RMAs
Self-motivated. Desire to take on challenges. Result-driven and details oriented.
Strong interpersonal and communication skills are a must.
Strong in transmission line fundamentals. Understand the fundamentals of time-domain vs. frequency-domain.
In depth knowledge in circuit designs, as well as semiconductor design.
Good PCB design experience on high speed signals routing guideline and review, power copper routing and review, design for EMI/ESD protection.
Design for signal integrity, power and interconnect.
Develops solutions to complex technical problems, which require ingenuity and creativity.
Analog design using simulation e.g. SPICE (or equivalent).
Practical experience with design tools:
Cadence Sigrity, Allegro Power-Aware SI
Mentor Graphics HyperLynx
Practical lab SI analysis experience using high bandwidth O-scopes
BS in Electrical Engineering required
MS in Electrical Engineering is preferred
3-5 years of relevant design experience
Excellent written and verbal communication
Excellent problem solving skills
