Define production, characterization and probe test plans for new products. Provide design for testability recommendations. Work closely with test and systems engineering to meet sample, characterization and production milestones.
Complete characterization and product release requirements including: tester-to-bench correlation, test program repeatability analysis, device characterization over extreme operating conditions, establish production test guard-band limits. Hold a characterization yield meeting that highlights issues and test deviations between production test program and customer data sheet.
Early engagement in engineering reviews in support of product development. Recommend reduced cost implementations (process, test, package etc.). Identify manufacturing issues associated with product introduction.
Support package, process and device qualifications as required.
Generate production test specifications and work closely with test facilities on new test program releases and optimization.
Sustain and provide technical support to released products through yield, reliability, quality, and PCM monitoring with improvement and issue resolution activities as appropriate.
Interface with outsource foundry, assembly, and test organizations as needed to support above activities.
Resolve customer issues and RMAs through ATE and bench analysis. Lead ATE efforts to drive PPM reductions.
Skills and Experience:
5 years+ demonstrated success in product & test engineering developing, ramping, and sustaining ASICs in a fabless environment.
Solid understanding of product/process interactions on leading edge CMOS technology nodes.SiGe BiCMOS experience a plus.
RF and/or digital/ mixed signal product experience, combination highly desirable.
