Req. ID: 217105 


As a System Architect in 3DXP Advanced System Architecture Group at Micron Semiconductor Products, Inc., you will work with the memory industry's leading architecture team on new concepts that will shape the future of electronic systems.  


Your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:


Delivering architectures and innovative solutions to optimize power and performance of next-generation memory and storage subsystems. Working with design and system architecture teams to identify key system requirements, tackle the current bottlenecks and propose novel solutions for a wide range of applications. These activities will entail:


  • Performing system-level simulations of innovative architectures to compare with existing design paradigms, using both open and closed-loop system performance analysis.
  • Developing models of new controllers, components, memory devices, interconnects, and processors.
  • Capturing, benchmarking, analyzing applications and their corresponding memory and storage access patterns.


The scope of this analysis will span from the low-level software stack (operating system, drivers, etc…) down to the hardware and firmware controllers. Candidates should have very strong knowledge of computer architecture and deep understanding complex blocks such as caches, interconnects, memory controllers, etc. while working in a collaborative environment. The successful applicant will be responsible for creating innovative solutions, modeling, and analyzing them to demonstrate their benefits and tradeoffs.


Successful candidate for this position will have:


  • Must have experience with large scale server systems with an emphasis on memory and storage subsystems.
  • Must have experience developing architectures for large complex blocks and measuring their impact at the system-level
  • Must have strong exposure to computer architecture analysis and design tradeoffs.
  • Must have C/C++ experience; Python and SystemC experience is a plus.
  • Must understand how to use the C++ Standard Template Library (STL).
  • Experience in memory controller architecture and protocols, DDDR, NVDIMM, is a plus.
  • Deep knowledge of architecture tradeoff analysis and modeling tools and methodologies.
  • Exposure to software development practices.
  • A strong knowledge through academic coursework or experience in DRAM and NAND memory systems, as well as other memory types is preferred.
  • Exposure to operating system (OS) memory management is a plus.
  • Ability to quickly react and adapt to changes based on modeling results, or project changes.
  • Excellent problem solving and troubleshooting skills.
