The Microchip High-Reliability Integrated Power Solutions Centre, based in Ennis, is a R&D and production facility supporting the design, development, manufacturing and test of Integrated Power Solutions (IPS) for high reliability applications. As the transportation sector continues to demand higher levels of power electronics reliability and integration in order to realise goals such as the more electric aircraft (MEA), Microchip’s IPS Centre of Excellence plays a critical role in supporting these objectives. Products from this centre include the Power Core Module (PCM) for Commercial Aircraft and Thrust Vector Control module for Space Launchers. The centre is now expanding and is seeking applicants to assist in the development of leading-edge new products.
The successful individual will perform mechanical design and process development for a new range of integrated power solutions using advanced methods, technologies and materials. These products include substrate and printed circuit board sub-assemblies, housed in metal or plastic frames and are subjected to extreme mechanical, electrical and environment stresses. They have a power capability in excess of 5 kVA and are developed and manufactured for use in various high-reliability application areas, particularly in various forms of transportation. Senior personnel will also have lead engineer and mentoring responsibilities. This position is based in Ennis and will involve interaction with other Microchip groups in France and USA.
