SoC Architecture Team Manager
The System Engineering System on Chip (SoC) Architecture team specifies the solutions for 2G/3G/HSPA/LTE handset baseband chips. Specifically, the SoC team is responsible for the Digital Baseband portion of the solution. This includes the overall SoC architecture meeting the functionality and performance specified by the System Requirements. The SoC Architecture team is responsible for generating the Subsystem Requirements, allocating the system requirements to the different baseband subsystems of the solution and specifying the implementation architecture to meet the requirements. The responsibilities of the SoC Architecture Manager include a broad understanding of some or all of the following:
- Deep understanding of ARM/x86/DSP based SoC architectures, bus architectures, peripherals, and security features.
- Ability to design, implement, and simulate system models for architecture trade-off and bandwidth analysis.
- Understanding of power savings techniques, technology, and algorithms.
- Ability to review and analyze process technologies and process options in support of low power design.
- Understanding of low power IC design architectures and system design architectures.
- Understanding of 2G/3G/4G Handset systems.
- Digital, Analog, Power, and RF SoC architectures.
- Knowledge of external component functionality and interfaces: memory, display, camera, external memory cards, connectivity (USB, BT, etc.).
- Understanding of IC design process and designs.
- Process technologies, standard cell libraries, memories, PLLs, clock generation, I/O buffers.
- IC design, simulation, and testing methodologies.
- Comprehend and communicate competitor Digital Baseband architectures and capabilities.
- Develop System Functional specifications that will be used to guide the Development Organizations during product development.
- Generate system level requirements for the Digital Baseband portion of a product based on Marketing Requirements. - Document and industry norms.
- Provide technical leadership to development teams.
- Work jointly with hardware and software architects to define the HW/SW split and overall concept.
- Optimize trade-off between cost, performance, power, effort, and flexibility of hardware architecture.
- Supports marketing and sales in discussions with customers, partners and operators.
- Responsible for IP definition and development in his area of expertise.
- Drive the solution approach for complex bug issues during development phase.
- Applies lessons learned from current customer/platform issues to enhance future HW architectures, as well as influencing HW/SW partitioning.
- Owns and drive Hardware Architecture roadmap and evolution.
In addition to the above technical responsibilities, the SoC Manager is also responsible for the following:
- Team mentoring, coaching, and development (both professional and technical).
- Develops the team to cope with current and future challenges for SoC Architectures.
- Resource assignments to projects.
- Content delivery to projects on time and to required quality.
- Team performance reviews.
- Give open, honest and clear feedback on target achievement and potential for improvement.
- Foster the employees development aligned with the assessment of his/her potential and the requirements of our company.
- Set clear goals and expectations for the new fiscal year.
- Hiring (both permanent and contractor).
- Resource planning for current and upcoming projects according to the product roadmaps.
- Full responsibility for functional budget to include but not limited to; functional HC, expense, capital equipment, T&L and training.
- Serves as communication link between his team and management in order to cascade goals and strategy downwards and to surface issues upwards.
Must possess a Bachelor of Science Degree or Masters of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering
- 6 or more years of experience in SoC architecture/development organization in the mobile phone business.
- 5 or more years of experience as a functional manager in the mobile phone industry or SoC design.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Experience working in international and multicultural teams.
- PhD in Electrical Engineering.
