Job Details

Our vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life for all .

Micron Technology is a world leader in innovating memory and storage solutions that accelerate the transformation of information into intelligence, inspiring the world to learn, communicate and advance faster than ever.

Job Description

Our Opportunity Summary:

For more than 43 years, Micron Technology, Inc. has redefined innovation with the world's most advanced memory and semiconductor technologies. We're an international team of visionaries and scientists, developing groundbreaking technologies that are transforming how the world uses information to enrich life.

We are looking for an HBM High-Speed Design Engineer. Are you passionate about designing circuits for the next generation of memory that will power groundbreaking AI applications?

You will work in an innovative and dynamic team and will be responsible for designing and analyzing high-speed circuits for DRAM and interface die. This includes simulating, optimizing, and floor planning circuits. In this position, you will collaborate with Micron's worldwide design and verification teams and support the efforts of multi-functional teams such as Product Engineering, Test, Probe, Process Integration, Assembly, and Marketing to proactively design HBM products that optimize all manufacturing functions and assure the best performance, power, cost, quality, reliability, time-to-market, and customer satisfaction. The seniority level offered will be based on the combination of experience and education.

In HBM DEG (High Bandwidth Memory - DRAM Engineering Group), we innovate and integrate end-to-end groundbreaking front-end and backend processes with groundbreaking design, debugging various tests, and qualification techniques to develop the lowest power per bit solutions to improve customer experience in the field of ML (Machine Learning) and AI (Artificial Intelligence). The success of a sophisticated product such as HBM relies vastly on vertical integration and the various engineering working in unison. To provide greater detail, our HBM technology pertains to stacking numbers of DRAM chips along with a logic chip within one package through an assembly technology called TSV (Through Silicon Via). This greatly increases the memory density in a package, while allowing very high-speed signal transmission. Furthermore, "high bandwidth"; is an outstanding memory design area where custom gate-level design and RTL style logic design are blended into the same product, and most of the DDR or LPDDR design is based on the gate-level design only. Lastly, verification and testing (validation) of HBM is the most challenging due to the total size of the design and complexity of the functions, and in addition to craft, many innovations are needed for verification and validation of the HBM product, thereby making it uniquely exciting.

Our team vision is a continuing desire to develop your skills working in an inclusive diverse environment of multicultural Teams across worldwide geographies! Enabling the creative career path you deserve with a collaborative environment and groundbreaking technology and growing upon your imagination and creativity.

(Disclaimer): While you may not exhibit all of the characteristics/skills listed below today, we are highly interested in a teammate who is motivated to grow in technical breadth and depth. Suppose you are open to learning while being a valued member of a team of premier engineers. In that case, we are determined to help build upon your existing foundation, while rapidly growing your individual and collaborative skills in this exciting and outstanding opportunity.

What's Encouraged Daily:

  • Collaborate with the architecture team and external customers on new product specifications
  • Pathfinding to explore new system-level solutions for future HBM products and make recommendations after performing highly technical feasibility analyses
  • Drive interface logic chip and memory architecture solutions
  • Design and develop high-speed interface PHY and its sub-block such as high-speed data paths, command/address decode, input buffer, output buffer, calibration, training, control, test, loopback, clock domain crossing, etc.
  • Drive innovation into the future Memory generation with a dynamic work environment
  • Provide advice and counsel to senior management on significant technical issues
  • Chip in expert knowledge to advance innovative technical solutions
  • Coordinate and own the layout process, including placement and routing optimization
  • Contribute to cross-group communication to work towards standardization and group success
  • Mentor and coach other design team members on technical issues.
  • Maintain technical expertise and provide training.

How To Qualify:

  • BSEE or Greater
  • 5+ years of relevant job/skill-related experience
  • Circuit design experience in analog/mixed-signal CMOS circuits in High-Speed Interfaces (for example DDR3/4/5, LPDDR3/4x/5, GDDR5/6)
  • Prior experience in taking full ownership of at least one of the sub-blocks like high-speed data path, command/address decode, input buffer, output buffer, serializer/deserializer, CDR, PLL, and DLL.
  • Experience with various CDR and Clocking architecture.
  • Working knowledge of Mixed mode simulation, Signal Integrity, and ESD.
  • Good verbal and written communication skills with the ability to efficiently synthesize and convey complex technical concepts to other partners and leadership
  • Consistent track record of innovation and problem-solving in high-speed design development

What Sets You Apart:

  • Experience with managing/leading a team
  • Experience with IP design/architecture
  • Knowledge of Verilog and static timing analysis
  • Excellent problem-solving and analytical skills
  • A self-motivated, hard-working team player who enjoys working with diverse abilities and backgrounds
  • Having an innovative approach that is open to improving upon any of our processes or products.
