Senior Embedded software Engineer
Statewide, Tamil Nadu

Job Description:

Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of embedded control applications. Our product portfolio comprises general purpose and specialized 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, 32-bit microprocessors, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) products, a broad spectrum of high-performance linear, mixed-signal, power management, thermal management, radio frequency (RF), timing, safety, security, wired connectivity and wireless connectivity devices, as well as serial Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM), Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories, and serial Static Random Access Memory (SRAM). We also license Flash-IP solutions that are incorporated in a broad range of products.


The MPU32 business unit develops Microchip?s new general-purpose processors based on ARM cores (926, A5 and A7 as of today) and specific chipsets for Smart Energy meters.

MPU32 Group is looking for a Senior Embedded Software Engineer to support functional validation of new products. This is achieved by exercising the processor on an application board mostly through embedded bare metal software, in order to:

check that core, built-in memories, embedded peripherals and more generally all products? features operate as described in datasheet and connect/interact correctly together
evaluate chip performance and check product stability in heavy workload condition.

Significant time is spent analyzing unexpected behavior to determine whether it comes from improper use, bad datasheet description or a design issue. This is precisely the major interest and the high responsibility in this job: be the first to exercise new unreleased products in order to find any misbehavior before the IC reaches customer base, then interact with the whole R&D actors in order to eliminate or circumvent the problem.

MPU32 headquarters locate in Rousset (France) and extend in the USA, Spain, Romania, the Philippines and China mainland.
