Job Description

Responsible for ensuring the testability and manufacturability of integrated circuits from the component feasibility stage through production ramp. Make significant contributions to design, development and validation of testability circuits. Evaluation, development and debug of complex test methods. Develops and debugs complex software programs to convert design validation vectors and drive complex test equipment. Creates and tests validation and production test hardware solutions. Tests, validates, modifies and redesigns circuits to guarantee component margin to specification. Analyzes and evaluates component specification versus performance to ensure optimal match of component requirements with production equipment capability with specific emphasis on yield analysis and bin split capability. Analyzes early customer returns with emphasis on driving test hole closure activities. Creates and applies concepts for optimizing component production relative to both quality and cost constraints. Autonomously plans and schedules own daily tasks, develops solutions to problems utilizing formal education and judgment.


The burn-in engineer will be a member of MPE Burn-in team. Job responsibilities include developing strategic solutions for burn-in or stress flows and methodologies used for server, graphics and chipset products for Qualification and HVM. Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Ensuring optimal stress application for products to meet their reliability goals.
  • Develop a component-level stress plan that takes into account design for burn-in considerations, product use conditions and requirements of infant mortality screening.
  • Evaluation, development, validation and debug of stress patterns for complex circuits and IP blocks
  • Analyze and evaluate component specification versus stress needs and ensure optimal match of component requirements with stress equipment capability
  • Drive continual improvement in coverage, or content enhancement through the lifecycle of development
  • Develop strategic BI solution for most complex products and working closely with design and validation teams to implement the solution.
  • Model based structured problem solving to resolve issues that arise either during stress implementation, or during validation or deployment to high volume manufacturing
  • Independently collaborating and communicating with manufacturing validation engineering, product QnR, TD QnR, STTD and ATM teams to accomplish project goals.
