As a member of Microchip’s engineering community, your primary responsibility will be to design, simulate, and verify the DDR Memory Controller and PHY Training IP supporting digital logic solutions for an advanced ASIC or FPGA. Microchip’s designs are an SOC with various Hard and Soft IP blocks that support a large number of industry standard protocols.


  • General RTL and ASIC development:

  • Detailed module design, performance analysis and detailed design specification creation

  • Participate in the RTL implementation, synthesis, formality check as well as ECOs

  • Support post-layout timing closure and verification

  • Participate in the investigation & assessment of emerging Memory Interface technologies & IPs

  • Improve Data & Command processing bandwidth, reduce latencies & increase reliability

  • Support porting the design into test chips and emulation platforms

  • Support pre-tapeout verification and post-tapeout validation/characterization of the system designed

  • Work closely with FPGA support software and FW engineers to resolve hardware issues and customer issues

  • DDR Memory Controller / PHY Development:

  • Integrate DDR Memory Controller Logic into a final design, including resets, clock domain crossing, power-down

  • controls, calibration logic, and associated register maps.

  • Work with 3rd party vendors for evaluation of potential IP cores and work with those IP providers to ensure robust, high bandwidth solutions.

  • Develop Block Level Constraints and run synthesis

  • Perform Static Timing Analysis of the Memory Controller and PHY digital logic and review post-layout timing.

  • Support Verification and Validation groups in testing of the DDR Memory Controller and other similar logic blocks.

  • Integrate and simulate memory controller designs including
  1. Integration into processor sub-systems as needed.

  2. Integration into IP used in the FPGA fabric of the device
  • Develop and/or integrate to industry standard Memory Controller Protocols
  1. DDR5, DDR4, LPDDR5, LPDDR4, DDR3, GDDR6, etc.

  2. Support for stand-alone components or DIMMs

  3. Fully embedded solutions such as HBM are a plus
  • Ongoing customer support to ensure the Memory Controller/PHY is robust with performance that meets the customer performance and/or power goals.

  • Support RTL design engineers with less experience for the functions shown above
