Staff Design Engineer

San Jose, CA, US


Req. ID: 222402 

As a Staff Design Engineer within the NAND Core Circuit Design Team at Micron, located in San Jose, California, you will be responsible for designing and developing non-volatile NAND memory array drivers and sensing circuits as well as implementing improvements to Micron's existing designs. The successful candidate will optimize the performance of array circuits through simulations and customize circuits and structure and chip plans based on project needs. You will work with multi-functional teams including process technology and product engineers to specify array waveforms and biasing conditions, analyze array related issues, resolve root cause, and apply corrective actions. The sophisticated scaling of 3D NAND Flash memories makes the design of circuits to interface with the array extremely complicated. This is a meaningful role in continuing to enable outstanding NAND Flash memory design in terms of die size, performance, and reliability.




Successful candidates for this position will have:

  • Strong understanding of NAND Flash memory operations
  • Wordline and bitline path architecture and transistor-level design experience. This includes device layout area estimation for die size considerations as well as planning of circuit block placements and signals routing with power, speed, and reliability considerations.
  • Perform die size cost and benefits analysis of new array circuits and algorithms prior to implementation
  • Effectively work with the Product design teams to ensure the accurate implementation and timely completion of array schematics and physical design drawings
  • Cooperate with Product Engineers during silicon debug and be able to diagnose circuit failures from silicon data
  • The ability to work well with others and collaborate successfully in a team environment




  • Minimum of Bachelor Degree, Master Degree preferred in Electrical/Computer Engineering, plus 5 years post-graduate experienc
