  • You have the capability to “own” the process module and/or tool(s) in initial development and manufacturing.
  • You have the capability with technologies to be developed address RF Device markets, but may include BiPolar, CMOS, MEMS, power and other value added devices.
  • You have device level understanding a plus, examples: RF switches e.g. HBT, FET, MEMS.
  • You posess abilities in Process capability and specification, semiconductor manufacturing metrics (Cpk, FMEA, foundry process transfer, etc.)
  • You posess abilities in Prototype process qualification (HTOL, burn-in, g-force, shock, etc.)
  • You can work with process engineering team, test team, customers to define goals and manufacturing solutions. 
  • You can define tests and device structures for characterization (CAD, evaluation).
  • You can provide support to resolve customer issues, problems and questions.
  • You can support transfer from development to production for processes variants.
  • You can support process transfer to worldwide fabrication facilities, if needed.

Job Requirements

  • BS in ME, ChE, EE, or Physics required.  PhD or Masters Degree preferred in relevant area.
  • Minimum 4+ year experience in semiconductor manufacturing, wafer fabrication, and MEMS technology process and integration
  • Semiconductor fab skills in process development (running tools; tool knowledge), integration, and reliability.
  • Experienced in layout and mechanical, electrical, thermal characterization of devices.
  • RF Test experience a plus
  • R&D project experience for prototyping novel devices, sensors or MEMS devices of direct relevance.
  • Optional: MEMS technology process and integration experience preferred - e.g. DRIE, release, seal, wafer bonding, temporary bonding, deposition, patterning, stress measurements and characterization, metrology.
  • Knowledge of SPC methodology – statistics, electrical test, DOE, preferred.
  • Experience that includes manufacture or prototype of devices or CMOS/BiCMOS RF circuits is preferred.
