Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of embedded control applications. Our product portfolio comprises general purpose and specialized 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, 32-bit microprocessors, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) products, a broad spectrum of high-performance linear, mixed-signal, power management, thermal management, radio frequency (RF), timing, safety, security, wired connectivity and wireless connectivity devices, as well as serial Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM), Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories, and serial Static Random Access Memory (SRAM). We also license Flash-IP solutions that are incorporated in a broad range of products.
As a member of Microchip's engineering community, your primary responsibility will be to design, simulate, and verify the SerDes PCS (Physical Coding Sublayer) and protocol specific supporting digital logic solutions for an advanced ASIC or FPGA. Microchip's designs are an SOC with various Hard and Soft IP blocks that support a large number of industry standard protocols.
