Job Description

Logic Technology Development , Resolution Enhancement Techniques (RET)  is responsible for the research, development and implementation of RET for nanoscale process technologies. Investigates potential inventions typically 2 to 4 years prior to being applied to a product.

Scope includes models and software to perform layout correction for high resolution reproduction on wafers. Applies software engineering methods, theories and research in the investigation and solution of technical RET problems.

In this job responsibilities will include but will not be limited to:

  • Defines and selects new approaches and implementation of RET software engineering applications, design specifications and parameters.

  • Maintains substantial knowledge of state-of-the-art principles and theories in lithography, optics, resists, modeling, and software engineering.

  • Contributes to the development of intellectual property in the domain of RET. Coordinates interdepartmental activities and research efforts.

  • Willing to interact with both VLSI design and silicon process technology development, and mask making communities to ensure solutions are optimal.

  • Use predictive modeling, statistics, machine learning, and other data analysis techniques to collect, explore, visualize, and to develop software algorithms and applications to compensate for physical effects in photolithography imaging and etch pattern transferal process.

Additionally, understanding in:

  • Optical Proximity Correction (OPC) simulations.

  • OPC model calibration or recipe optimization and code validation.

  • Development of novel OPC model or correction capabilities.

The candidate should possess the below behavioral traits:

  • Problem-solving, data mining and analytics,

  • Attentiveness to detail.

  • Effectively communicate, collaborate and align with team members, customers


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position.
