Enabling the creative career path, you deserve with a collaborative environment, and groundbreaking technology while rapidly growing your abilities.

We are seeking an ASIC Architect for Micron's ASIC architecture team. You should have strong knowledge and experience with many aspects of the SOC design and implementation flow - such as coverage-driven verification, synthesis, P&R, STA, DFT, power-islands, floor-planning, CTS, IR-drop - and an understanding of how architecture decisions impact these flows. You will be responsible for developing, contributing, and leading ASIC macro and micro-architecture activities in our storage-based controllers. You should be highly motivated with strong communication skills, attention to detail, and be quality oriented. Candidates with a take-ownership attitude will succeed in this role.

What's Encouraged Daily
  • Reviewing product and FW requirements
  • Working with other ASIC architects and with system architects to define and document the feature sets and data/control flows implemented by the controller and each of its component IPs.
  • Defining requirements for ASIC design, verification, and physical implementation teams
  • Evaluating area, performance, power, and ease-of-implementation trade-offs between different implementation solutions
  • Reviewing and configuring 3rd party IPs
  • Supporting other teams in the ASIC organization and reviewing their work
  • Supporting product teams with documentation, code reviews, and silicon debug
  • Continuously finding opportunities for improving design quality and design practices
