Job Description

In this position you will help to develop future process technologies such as silicon and Group III-V/Nitride , ensuring the transistors meet reliability requirements. You will partner with process development teams to define new transistor architectures. Develop and conduct electrical tests to quantify transistor reliability behavior and identify new failure modes that may be present in emerging technologies. Develop physics-based and empirical compact models that will be used by design teams to ensure product reliability. The Transistor Reliability RD engineer will be responsible for but not limited to:

  • Design and execute experiments to determine the necessary parameters for reliability model development and validation.
  • Develop new acceleration techniques and analytical tools to assure the early identification of potential reliability problems with new products manufacturing processes and transistor architecture.
  • Develop risk assessments and making quality and reliability predictions based on data collected using statistical principles and design of experiments fundamentals.
  • Creating reliability design layout rules and specifications. Advise design engineering on selection application and test of electronic components and systems.
  • Collaboration with cross-functional teams to solve technical reliability issues during technology development and ramp to high-volume manufacturing.
  • Recommending process technology certification evaluation and acceptance criteria.
  • Recommending material design or test methods and statistical process control procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability.
  • Partners may include Logic Technology Development LTD, Wafer Fab Manufacturing, Test FSM Assembly, Test Manufacturing, ATM Intel Custom Foundry. Partners within Intel's Customer Quality Network (CQN) focused on Product Development and Manufacturing Reliability. This is an entry-level position and will be compensated accordingly.
