Senior ASIC Engineer – 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 configurable programmable 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.  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 Senior ASIC Engineer with proven industry experience from high performance ASIC design. In this collaborative role, you will work as part of a valued team of around six developers, with focus on HW design and RTL (Verilog) implementation of new features and modules, as well as making sure that the entire processor IP meets physical requirements on clock frequency, power and silicon area.  As MediaTek’s successful Senior ASIC Engineer you will participate in all stages from circuit design and RTL implementation, through to physical synthesis and timing/power analysis.  You will also have the opportunity to work together with the backend/physical design team to ensure that the end product reaches the highest possible performance. 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, as a hands-on engineer, many opportunities to influence both development methodology and the type of work you take on.
