What You Will Be Doing in Boise, Idaho

As a Design Verification Engineer for Micron, you will work with a highly innovative and motivated design and verification team using state of the art memory technologies to develop the most advanced DRAM and Emerging memory products.

You will be challenged by the complexity and difficulty of verifying high density memory chips (up to 32Gb) with huge scale of circuit capability (over 4M transistors), ultra-high speed designs, complex functionality which includes next Generation DDR/LPDDR (ex: DDR5, LPDDR5) and advanced low power and power management technologies.

You will be responsible to evaluate the functionality and performance of the Full-chip and block-level circuit designs using different verification tools, techniques, and strategies. In addition, you will also need to provide solutions to help deliver a functionally correct design.

Lastly, you will need to collaborate closely with Micron's various design, verification, and product engineering teams all over the world to ensure design project success.

Your Key Responsibilities Will Include

  • Provide verification support to the DRAM and Emerging Memory Design Engineering teams by simulating, analyzing, and debugging pre-silicon full-chip and block-level designs.
  • Assist product engineering teams with circuit and simulation support during post-silicon validation phase.
  • Develop, run, and maintain verification test benches and vectors using industry standard and inhouse developed programs.
  • Write test patterns/vectors and monitors to enhance the functional coverage for all DRAM and Emerging Memory architectures and features.
  • Automate the collection of simulation data through writing software scripts to improve efficiency.
  • Maintain and enhance inhouse developed verification programs and tools.
  • Collaborate closely with international colleagues to develop new verification methodologies and strategies to take on the future challenges in DRAM and Emerging Memory design.

Education & Experience Necessary for Success

  • MS in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or equivalent with emphasis on VLSI design and/or Verification. Job title is scalable depending on the candidate's experience/background.
  • Fluent understanding in CMOS circuit design.
  • Familiar with analog simulation methodology and tools, i.e. FINESIM, HSPICE, HSIM.
  • Basic understanding on digital simulators, such as Verilog.
  • Good programming fundamentals with knowledge in Python programming is preferred.
  • Good debugging and problem-solving skills.
  • Must possess good communication skills and ability to work well in a team environment.
  • Work experience in DRAM memory related fields is a plus.
