Job Description

Intel's Frame Automation Team (FRAT) is responsible for developing automation to support the Frame. We are constantly innovating and adapting to Intel's next generation process technology and products as dictated by Moore's Law. To keep the process going, we work closely with engineers from Lithography, Process Integration, Device Physics, Circuit Design, and RET (Resolution Enhancement Technology) teams to understand/establish frame structure definition. The Frame is a critical component of every wafer that is manufactured by Intel. The frame contains silicon structures that are needed by various lithographic tools for optimal functionality. We design frame structures so that the next generation of Intel products are the best they can be.

  • Talk to process integration and lithography engineers to understand details of semiconductor processing steps.

  • Talk to a lithography module engineer (scanner alignment, registration/overlay module) to understand tool requirements.

  • Create software modules (with an emphasis on agility and quality) used in the design of lithographic metrology structures.

  • Designing and validating CAD layout of litho metrology structures.

To thrive in our team, you should:

  • Be self-driven

  • Have written and verbal communication skills to convey complex technical information to both technical and non-technical audiences.

  • Be willing to learn about details of semiconductor manufacturing process

  • Comprehend capabilities and limitations of semiconductor process, requirements of lithography tools, and produce design specifications under tight deadlines and stringent quality expectations

  • Flexible to ambiguity, be agile to face constantly changing requirements and make appropriate trade-offs in terms of scope and schedule.

What we offer: 

  • We give you opportunities to transform technology and create a better future, by delivering products that touch the lives of every person on earth.
