ASIC Principal Product Engineer
Date Created: 04-21-14 (03:15 PM)
Location: Farmington Hills, MI
Openings: 1
Product Overview:
Cognitive Safety Systems remarkable power to help keep people safer relies on a suite of sensors and advanced electronics that make vehicles smarter. We create intelligent systems that enhance the safety of pedestrians, drivers and passengers by combining our active and passive technologies. Using proprietary algorithms, these intelligent systems sense, calculate and adapt to help drivers avoid or mitigate an accident. Incorporating this advanced awareness yields a higher level of safety, efficiency, comfort and convenience.
Electronically controlled braking systems are a key component of intelligent systems. These systems combine anti-lock brakes, traction control, and electronic stability control and also provide automated braking support for collision mitigation and regenerative braking systems.
Essential to the success of these systems are highly sophisticated and technologically advanced ASICs (application specific integrated circuits) which improve overall system performance, while reducing size, weight and cost. Maintaining a competitive advantage requires the best and most innovative engineers to develop these ASICs.
Job Summary:
The responsibilities for a Principal Engineer in the Global Electronics Engineering Semiconductor Core Development team include the development of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) and Application Specific Standard Products (ASSP) for the Braking product lines including Electronic Stability Control Systems.
Work within the ASIC team while developing expertise and ownership of key ASIC circuit blocks.
Architectural development and specification construction
Functional and safety verification including developing test requirements, testing and test oversight.
Interacting heavily with ASIC supplier design, testing and safety organizations to guide, review, and approve design implementation activities, perform safety analysis, confirm specification compliance, resolve issues, and support device returns analysis.
Interfacing with the core and application module engineers to gather requirements, provide expert development and integration support, and verify the ASIC within an ECU.

Familiarity with semiconductor industry trends and best practices (continuous improvement, zero defect, quality processes, AEC-Q100, state of the art testing and manufacturing, etc.).
Highly motivated and able to work with little direct oversight in a collaborative environment.
Strong time management skills.
Excellent communication/networking skills.
Strong analytical and troubleshooting skills.
Proficient using spreadsheets, word processing, simulation/analysis software, and ECAD tools.
Experience managing subcontracted engineering resources (e.g. for analysis and verification work) desired.
Familiarity with Hardware Description Languages such as VHDL or Verilog and verification/validation of ASIC design desired.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
