teams consist of progressive, diverse, and exceptionally creative professionals who design, test and manufacture some of the best-loved entertainment devices in the world. Our teams ship tens of millions of hardware products every year including the Xbox
360, Xbox One
, a full accessories lineup, and more. Microsoft
is the destination for the brightest minds in entertainment device design. Come be part of what's next.
We are seeking a qualified candidate for a Principal Engineer
to drive the power delivery solutions for the Xbox
console hardware development team. The successful candidate will be the primary technical focal point for the voltage regulator solutions on past, present and future Xbox
console design projects. A deep understanding of voltage regulators is expected including single and multi-phase regulators, linear regulators, schematic capture and PCB
layout experience, power impedance and thermal limitations of the design. Additionally
, this candidate will be required to have an understanding of control loop theory and stability, component and PCB
parasitic, and transient response characteristics.
The candidate will define the voltage regulator architecture, lead a team to prototype the solutions, characterize the results, and validate that the regulator meets the load requirements across realistic workload and environmental conditions within stringent cost targets. The candidate will be required to balance performance, cost, reliability, and manufacturability for the best possible solution. Last
, the candidate will ensure a successful transition of the entire VR solution into a high volume manufacturing environment including test techniques, yield analysis, and manufacturability.
internal / external VR design activities by leading the console VR team with our silicon partners / vendors as well as provide technical leadership regarding:
architectural analysis of VR solutions for cutting edge silicon
the solution and leading a team to meet all deliverables on time and at cost.
internal schedule and milestones based on agreed upon vendor schedule.
lead from the console team to ensure the solution meets the load requirements with the proper margin, budgets and specifications at a high level of quality.
VR technical requirements with all associated partners.
review and console team signoff of technical collateral from the vendor.
o VR Technology
assessment with respect to new technology such as digital VR solutions, telemetry, and system control and interaction over I2C or PMBUS
point for the console team to ensure HW / SW resources are aligned with regards to power delivery
o Minimum BS/MS
in Electrical Engineering
o A solid understanding of core engineering principles
understanding of current Voltage Regulator Technology
and power performance optimization
with static and transient power loads from complex SOC's
power states and current cutting edge power reduction techniques such as clock gating, power gating, and workload throttling.
o 15+ years of experience designing, implementing, and shipping products of medium to hiplexity
with power savings and low power techniques
of high volume consumer electronics design and manufacturing is desired.
bench evaluation, power delivery measurement techniques and in-lab debugging skills are required.
communication skills with the ability to clearly express technical concepts in verbal and written forms.
, motivated and self-driven.
and international travel will be required.
