System Architect

Title System Architect
Company Marvell

Santa Clara,CA


This is a system architect position in the SOC platform group. In this position, you will be 
responsible for providing IP solutions to product teams within Marvell. This involves: studying 
specs related to the IPs; having discussions with the product groups to understand the use 
scenarios and system requirements; working with the software group to come up with SW/HW partition; defining architecture specs for development. At times, this process also involves evaluating 3rd party solutions if they exist. You will also work closely with the system modeling group to develop 
system C models for the IPs and use them for architecture exploration and early SW development.

The potential candidate should have experience in SOC architecture and in-depth experience with 
various building block IPs such as UART, I2C, I2S, DMA. Experience in logic design is a major plus as this position involves mentoring junior designers to generate micro-architecture specification based on architecture specification and then implement the design. Experience with low power design architecture and design methodologies is a plus.


BS degree in Electrical Engineering + 10 years experience (or MS + 8 years) or equivalent in 
hardware development and system architecture.

• In-depth knowledge of building block IPs such as: UART, I2C, I2S, SPI.
• Knowledge of Low Power architecture and design practice is very desirable.
• Logic design experience using Verilog is very desirable. 
• Knowledge of System C is desirable.
• Working understanding of various system interconnect protocols such as: AHB, AXI, OCP, APB,
and their impact on IP development.
