Company Description

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 ofproducts.

Job Description

Job Description:

Define and implement IC test solutions for next generation FPGA SOC products. Workclosely with senior team members and Design teams on Design-For-Test (DFT) features, Built-In-Self-Test (BIST), structural and functional test methodologies, and pre-silicon test validation. Develop test generation automation, embedded firmware and lab and ATE hardware to ensure fast silicon bring-up cycle time, test coverage and product cost goals. Bring up new test programs and hardware on first silicon and stabilize initial manufacturing test. Release and transfer new product test programs and hardware to Operations.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Work with senior team members and design engineers to help define DFT (Design-For-Test) features, test methodology and test coverage requirements to effectively screen manufacturing defects and ensure performance for next generation programmable SOC devices
  • Help develop custom test generation software tools to increase productivity and ensure quality of custom test methodologies and ATE test flows
  • Generate, simulate, and validate test firmware and test methodologies pre-silicon
  • Generate, debug, and release ATE test flows and hardware for initial silicon bring up and rollout
  • Support initial silicon bring-up through debug and roll-out of calibration and manufacturing defect screening test flows
  • Transfer new product test plans, test flows and hardware to Operations teams
  • Support continuous innovation in test development, rollout, product quality and cost
