MTS - ASIC SOC Architecture/Design (800 - 104)

Pensando HQ, Full time

Description:  Design and architecture responsibilities as part of a small, dynamic ASIC team developing  next generation data center infrastructure. You will build/integrate storage and security offload hardware and work closely with third-party IP vendors to evaluate IP offerings and decide strategy for build vs buy.  In addition to IP evaluation/selection, you will participate in extensive reviews of the architecture, micro-architecture, and test plans and specify the performance criteria used for validation. These designs will also be FIPS 140-2 compliant and you will work with security consultants and customers to understand performance and functional requirements.  Besides FIPS 140-2, you should be familiar with root-of-trust, secure boot, and PUF technologies.
