Duties and Responsibilities
Interface in cross functional teams to ensure the design meets all firmware, diagnostic and system level requirements.
Participate in architecture definition and lead designing of SSD products. Complete ownership of SSD hardware through the product life cycle.
Perform detailed verification of the SSD design in lab to ascertain the design margins.
Document and communicate results with cross functional counterparts.
Debug design issues and capture 8D reports.
Experience in designing high volume and cost sensitive products (keeping manufacturability challenges in mind)
PCB back-end process: defining stack-up and via technologies, part placement, setting design constraints
Works proactively with cross functional team members during design, verification as well as on RMAs
In addition to design, a successful candidate will mentor and provide technical guidance to other hardware team members
