This is the Invention Age – and this is where you come in.
As a Platform Power Management IC FW Developer, you are responsible for working with a team on the enablement of the power delivery solution for a future server-class platform. You will collaborate internally to help define and implement embedded firmware to manage the power delivery for the platform. You will also participate in various other aspects of management firmware, including platform and power management, boot, RAS, security and runtime services provided to application processors.
In this role you will be responsible for designing and implementing ROM and updatable FW for the Power Management IC (PMIC). You will be working closely both, with the hardware power management and firmware development teams. You will have an opportunity to engage with third parties on enablement of new platforms, as well as providing input to our SoC and platform architects on future designs.
