NVM Reliability R and D Engineer

Job Description

Microelectronic Quality Reliability Engineers provide project management, product, process design/development and sustaining support for integrated circuit or semiconductor assemblies, various other electronic components, sub systems and/or completed units.

The ideal candidate would be responsible for physical understanding, model prediction and enhancement of quality & reliability for advanced products, transistor, interconnect, assembly/package and testing process.

Defines Si/assembly/package qualification requirement and responsible for product qualification or technology certification. Defines/develops and conducts stress tests, DFX requirements and research on individual technology components as well as integrated circuit/products. Develop cost effective production monitoring and screening schemes to ensure process is stable and products meet committed quality & reliability performance.

In this position, you will be working as a member of the Non-Volatile Memory NVM Solutions Group's NSG's Technology Development Quality and Reliability team, helping to develop Intel's new emerging NVM technologies such as 3D NAND and 3D XPointTM and SSD products, focusing on NVM array reliability: degradation of key parameters due to write and read endurance cycling and various data retention and disturb mechanisms.

Your responsibilities will include but not limited to:

·         Determining reliability requirements and technology targets of components and systems to achieve company, customer and other reliability objectives. Designing and executing experiments to identify, segment, characterize and model NVM array reliability mechanisms.

·         Developing empirical and physics-based predictive reliability modeling methods and tools for reliability risk assessments.

·         Developing new acceleration techniques, test methods and analytical tools to provide fast and effective feedback for process, product and test optimization on reliability issues Influencing design, process, product, test and/or system solutions in order to enable aggressive scaling of Intel's NVM technologies and exploration of novel memory cells.

·         Developing the appropriate process- and product-qualification stress methods and criteria. You may be expected to lead small cross-functional and cross-company groups of engineers on multi-disciplinary technical projects to solve complex reliability issues- such as, during technology development and ramp to high-volume manufacturing. You may also be expected to supervise a small team of engineers and/or technicians.


Minimum requirements:

The candidate must have a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and 8+ years of experience outside academia relevant to NAND Flash Memory reliability.

Preferred qualifications:

Technical knowledge, skills and experience. One or more of the following areas: VLSI design, semiconductor device physics, reliability, electrical failure analysis and fault isolation. Programming C, PERL or Python. Reliability failure statistics, physics, or reliability failure mechanisms. Statistical analysis packages such as R, JMP or Minitab. Programming for testing, preferably of memories, and data acquisition, reduction and analysis. Semiconductor fabrication process, packaging assembly, test and/or board/system level technology operation.

The ideal candidate should exhibit behavioral traits:

·         Demonstrated ability to work in a fast-paced dynamic environment.

·         Demonstrated persistence and commitment to achieving results.

·         Ability to clearly communicate achieved results and to influence wide range of audiences.

·         Ability to work well in a team setting with people from a wide range of backgrounds.

·         Ability to understand the high level picture and apply systems thinking to generate solutions.

·         Ability for systematic analytical problem solving, attention to details and quality of the technical work.

·         Demonstrated creativity and innovation in solving technical problems. Affinity for cross-disciplinary work.
