And that takes brain power and willingness to create and innovate.  Join us and help us continue to create cutting edge technologies for a more connected world all around you.

 

As a Senior Product Engineer in the Automotive Connectivity Business Unit within the Connectivity and Sensors Group, you will be part of a focused team that develops and qualifies new products while also maintaining the current portfolio of released products. You will be driving innovation and continuous improvement in a fast-paced, dynamic environment through the use of rigorous statistical methods.

The position focuses on new product introductions, improving yields, maintaining quality and perfecting test solutions for a broad range of wireless RF components. This position interfaces with Design, Applications, Marketing, Test, Process, Reliability, Quality Engineering and the Operations teams throughout the development process and during the production sustaining phase.  This position will be based in Greensboro, NC.

 

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Drive and own Product Engineering deliverables for New Product Development.
  • Data-driven decision making based on timely and thorough data analysis.
  • Provide detailed analyses for each major design revision during the prototype phase of development, identify key parameters needing improvement and then communicate these to the core development team.
  • Practice continuous improvement and yield optimization by tracking wafer foundry parameters, uncovering correlations and troubleshooting process and equipment issues.
  • Employ appropriate Statistical Process Control (SPC) principles to reduce variability in product performance.
  • Implement and optimize outlier detection tools such as Part Average Testing (PAT), Good Die Bad Neighborhood (GDBN) and Western Electric Run Rules to detect and eliminate maverick material within the various manufacturing process flows.
  • Develop test plans for prototype and production electrical testing of wafers and packaged devices to ensure effective test coverage while optimizing test time.
  • Analyze products to ensure manufacturability and data sheet compliance, including setting the optimal screening limits and guard-bands in production test plans.
  • Support Test Engineering activities to debug, validate and release production test hardware/software during development and after production release.
  • Conduct and summarize results for measurement systems analyses (Gauge R&R, ANOVA studies).
  • Compile and analyze data using common statistical techniques (time-series analysis, CPK, DOE, SPC, ANOVA) and effectively present key results along with recommended actions.
  • Generates Yield Plans that provide a roadmap for improving manufacturing efficiency in order to optimize cost models and to meet yield targets.
  • Leverage Die Level Traceability (DLT) and Big Data Analytics to uncover complex correlations in products and processes to drive improvements and screens.
  • Engage in group problem-solving and process improvement projects (familiarity with Six Sigma, A3, 8D or comparable methods is desirable).
  • Serve as the central technical resource for design, process, manufacturing, test, quality and marketing as products move from the prototype phase into production.


QUALIFICATIONS:

  • BS in Electrical Engineering or comparable technical discipline (MS preferred).
  • 3-5 years of experience in a semiconductor environment, preferably within the wireless RF Power Amplifier industry.
  • Understanding of IC Reliability and Qualification methods.
  • Use and documentation of disciplined problem-solving techniques such as 8D or 5-Whys.
  • Expertise in statistical methods and using databases and statistical software (SQL, JMP, Spotfire, R, Excel, etc.).
  • Understanding of RF/Microwave theory and of semiconductor physics.
  • Knowledge of typical RF test equipment and common test methodologies.
  • Must have strong attention to detail, be self-motivated and able to achieve results with minimal supervision.
  • A team player with strong written, verbal and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to interface effectively and to build consensus with coworkers at every level of the company.
  • Time management skills sufficient to balance multiple high-priority activities.
  • Must be comfortable in leading activities and projects at both the tactical and strategic level.
  • Background in Wi-Fi and Cellular standards preferred.
