Functional Safety ManagerMicrochip Technology, Inc. - Austin, TX
The Functional Safety Manager, as a member of the Automotive Products Group (APG), will be responsible for developing
and managing a team of people that definine and implement the systems, resources, and methodologies to enable support and
compliance to ISO-26262. This support shall include, but not be limited to, new silicon development, existing
silicon, development tools that support the design-in of Microchip’s products, S/W produced by Microchip for use with silicon
products, and corporate level systems required for the entire product safety life cycle. The F/S Manager will work with a
variety of business units, product teams, and corporate groups to establish and maintain a safety culture.
The F/S manager will be responsible for adapting and complementing the existing corporate expertise, systems, and
methodologies for robust product development to follow the H/W and S/W development methodology requirements for Safety
Elements out of Context. The F/S Manager will develop resources, training material, templates, internal specifications, and
recommend tools to enhance the many product development teams’ capability and competency to perform ISO-26262 H/W
and S/W development and integration activities. The F/S Manager will ensure that systems can adapt and be applied in a
pragmatic way for projects with different F/S goals, ranging from individual IP library items to analog components to large
MCUs. Tailoring of ISO-26262 requirements must also be done for existing silicon products, such as the preparation of
FMEDAs, safety manuals, and tool qualifications.
The F/S Manager and APG will attend project team meetings to provide advice and/or auditing functions, while the project
team provides the necessary resources for the execution of project F/S responsibilities. The F/S Manager and APG will

Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, providing low-risk product development, lower total system cost and faster time to market for thousands of diverse customer applications worldwide. Headquartered in Chandler, Arizona, Microchip offers outstanding technical support along with dependable delivery and quality. Microchip Technology Incorporated and all related affiliates (collectively, “Microchip”) share the global concern regarding the human tragedies occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries associated, in part, with the mining of columbite-tantalite (tantalum), cassiterite (tin), wolframite (tungsten), and gold (3TG). These minerals originate from various continents, but armed groups engaged in, or interfering with mining operations within the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries (the Dodd-Frank “Covered Countries”) are subjecting people to human rights violations and using proceeds from the sale of these Conflict Minerals to finance and sustain regional conflicts. Microchip supports responsible mineral sourcing. We recognize the need to develop programs that allow for improved transparency in the 3TG supply chains. Our goal is to provide reasonable assurance that all integrated circuits manufactured by Microchip are DRC conflict free. In calendar year 2015, we made substantial progress toward that goal. We successfully removed smelters from our integrated circuits supply chain that were uncooperative with the CFSI Conflict Free Smelter Program. As of December 22, 2015, all smelters and refiners remaining in Microchip’s integrated circuits supply chain are listed on: the CFSI’s “compliant smelter” list, the CFSI’s “active smelter” list, or the TI-CMC’s “active smelter” list. Our independent due diligence research did not identify conflict minerals sourcing risk from the current “active smelters”. Should mineral sourcing risks be identified, they will be presented to our executive management for discussion and, as appropriate, action.
