Job Description:

Our vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life for all. Micron Technology is a world leader in innovating memory and storage solutions that accelerate the transformation of information into intelligence, inspiring the world to learn, communicate and advance faster than ever.The Director, Memory CAD Engineering & AI/ML is a technical leadership role within Micron's Engineering Automation (EA) organization. The EA organization delivers DTK (Design Technology Kit) collateral, environments, tools, and flows for the design, implementation, verification, and tape out of custom memory designs. These CAD tools and collateral enable DRAM, NAND, and other emerging memory designs on a range of industry-leading Micron-developed process nodes. There is also a new emphasis on developing CAD tools and solutions for IC Design that leverage Machine Learning methods and algorithms. This requires oversight of ML-based software and systems development within the highly specialized domain of custom IC design and implementation.Responsibilities:

  • Lead the day-to-day support of CAD tools, flows, and collateral, provided by functionally organized CAD teams worldwide to DRAM design teams at the Atlanta DEG Design Center. The tools and flows enable all aspects of mixed-signal, transistor-level custom IC design including logical design, custom layout, parameterized cells, automated place and route tools, physical design verification (LVS, DRC), ERC, Layout Parasitic Extraction, pre and post-layout simulation, digital and analog circuit simulation, timing and power analysis, reliability simulation and analysis (including HCI, BTI, EM/IR), tape out and mask generation.
  • Drive close collaboration with DRAM design, layout, and verification methodology teams to propose and co-develop outstanding or under-supported capabilities by EDA vendors and consistently deploy best-in-class practices and methodologiesto DRAM designs worldwide.
  • Drive research and development at the intersection of IC Design Automation and Machine Learning to envision, scope, develop and deliver ML-based solutions benefiting IC design.
  • Establish and grow university relationships in the local Atlanta area to foster partnered research and development in design automation tools with an emphasis on data science and machine learning applications to EDA.The ideal candidate has the following qualifications:
    • Experience leading highly technical IC Design or CAD teams distributed worldwide.
    • Familiarity with memory design preferred (DDR3/4/5, LP3/4/5, HBM, NAND)
    • Knowledge of CMOS circuit design, layout and verification, and in-depth experience supporting some of these areas.CMOS transistor level design, logical design, and netlisting:
      • CMOS digital and analog layout, Cadence Skill, and parameterized cells
      • Automated place and route tools
      • LVS, DRC, LPE flows
      • ERC flows, static and dynamic circuit checks
      • Circuit simulation including nanometer scale MOS and interconnect effects
      • Digital simulation and verification flows (System Verilog/UVM test benches and coverage systems)
      • Power delivery network simulation and analysis
      • Reliability flows such as HCI, BTI, EM/IR, crosstalk
      • Mask generation and tape out basicsKnowledge and experience vetting and deploying sophisticated EDA software flows:
        • Experience qualifying vendor tools and internally developed software releases
        • Experience developing software prototypes for innovative ideas in IC design, layout, and analysis
        • Experience running agile (software) sprints is a plusData Science and ML:
          • Experience with Machine Learning algorithms and applications
          • Experience and track record delivering production-grade ML applications in IC Design (one or more areas including custom design, layout, logic and timing verification, circuit simulation and physical design verification)
          • Comfortable directing and leading risky/uncertain innovative ML developmentExcellent communication and problem-solving skills are required.Strive to continuously learn, develop new skills, and self-improve.Education and years of experience:
            • PhD in Computer Engineering, Computer Science or Electrical Engineering
            • (10-15) + years of direct CAD or Design experience in mixed-signal, custom IC design flowsAs a world leader in the semiconductor industry, Micron is dedicated to your personal wellbeing and professional growth.
