DSP Processor Architect – MediaTek

Aug 9 - Jan 1

MediaTek is the world’s 4th largest global fabless semiconductor company, leading the market in chipset technology.  We enable more than 1.5 billion consumer electronic products a year including Smart TVs, Voice Assistant Devices (VAD), Android tablets, feature phones, Optical and Blu-ray DVD players, and we’re number two globally in mobile phones. MediaTek is one of the top four companies globally to advance 5G development, quickly bringing a complete, standards-based and optimized 5G solution to the market. At MediaTek Sweden (MSE) we develop a vector DSP processor platform optimized for signal processing in wireless modems.  Our technology is used in MediaTek cellular modems for 5G, in chipsets that are produced in millions every month. MediaTek’s processor architecture is continuously evolving to meet the requirements of new communication standards.  This work is carried out at the Linköping office, in collaboration with teams in Taiwan and the US.  In Linköping, we also implement the key components of the DSP and deliver it as a soft IP block to modem chip projects.  Requirements on high clock frequency and low power mean that we must also have very good understanding of the physical implementation.  We also develop tools for generating and verifying different processor configurations, as well as a simulator/debugger used to develop firmware for our processor.


The Role

We are looking for a proven DSP Processor Architect to join our architecture team.  As MediaTek’s successful DSP Processor Architect you will become a valuable member of this fantastic team, who are responsible for defining the long-term direction of MediaTek’s DSP processor architecture. Your job will be to identify architecture bottle necks and propose solutions for managing future processing requirements. Part of this challenging but rewarding role will be to drive architecture studies and profiling efforts both independently and in collaboration with your talented colleagues. As the architecture work is completed in collaboration with the silicon IP team in Sweden, our compiler team based in the US and a team of modem architects based in Taiwan, the ability to communicate effectively and efficiently across various time zones and cultures is critical. This is an excellent opportunity to work with advanced technology alongside highly skilled and motivated colleagues in a creative, international environment.  At MediaTek, we embrace agile development giving you many opportunities to influence both development methodology and the type of work you take on.
