Background of Recruitment:

In recent years, MPU products for IA requires high performance and high added value such as 5G and Wi-Fi 6 module support as well as network functions, security, functional safety, and motor control. The following tasks are getting important in order to develop such SoC products, 1) The definition of HW function specification,  2) IP macro implementation, 3) 3) Function verification and device evaluation. We would like to widely recruit personnel which have one or more tasks of 1) to 3) to further expand the MPU product lineup for IA and bring it to market at an early stage.



One or more of the following SoC design tasks for IA (Industrial Automation) MPU products.
1) The definition of HW (Hard Ware) function specification: The definition of HW function specification and implementation specification which are required for circuit and package design, based on requirement specification from IA market.
2) IP macro implementation: The selection of proper IP macros for high speed IF (PCIe, USB3, Gbit Ether, MIPI, etc.) and DDR PHY/MEMC to realize the requirement specification from IA market, and the IP macro implementation into 1chip and package.
3) Function verification and device evaluation: function verification with various EDA tools, and function and characteristic evaluation for 1chip and IP macro with device board.


Required Skills and Work Experience:


The following one or more experiences are required;

- The definition of HW function specification for MPU

- The development of SoC product which contains High speed I/F or DDR PHY/MEMC

- The function and characteristic evaluation with device board


- RTL design and/or verification

- FPGA and/or device evaluation board development

- IP macro development
