  • Work closely with the New Technology Introduction and the New Product Introduction teams to coordinate the development production test infrastructure and support bench test requirements and deliver the new test systems.
  • Be responsible for increased test capacity and throughput as well as for expanding the team's knowledge of device electrical failure modes and leveraging these failure modes to continuously improve all test infrastructure.
  • Work in a fast-paced and adaptive team environment that is developing innovative technology with impact on broad industrial and commercial products.
  • DFT-Develop and implement the company’s product-specific test roadmap to secure outgoing quality at the lowest cost.
  • Design, develop, debug, implementation and operation of new and novel High Power ATE high Volume Production test systems.
  • Implement and drive device validation and qualification and final test processes.
  • Implement and drive device test aspects of reliability, process and yield improvements Ensure test needs are part of new product introduction processes.
  • Work across organizations to develop and drive best in class electrical test and data communication processes.
  • Drive sound electrical failure mode analysis and DOE style experimental practices.
  • Maintain the bench and production test infrastructure.
  • Comply with all company quality and safety policies and procedures.

Qualifications and requirements:

  • To meet the basic qualification for this role, you will have legal authorization to work permanently in the United States for any employer without requiring a visa transfer or visa sponsorship.
  • BS or MS in electrical or electronic engineering, physics or a related field.
  • A minimum of >=3 years of professional work experience as an ATE test engineer working with High Power electronic or electrical devices.
  • Ability to develop High Power Test methods using ATE instrumentation including milli ohm resistance measurements; pico amp leakage measurements; mixed signal testing synchronizing digital cards with Digitizers and SMU’s and high current SMU techniques.
  • Signal integrity knowledge to enable high voltage time domain signals, Kelvin measurement techniques, Triax leakage measure measurements both in terms of instrument setup and PCB layout.
  • Knowledge of schematic design and physical layout.
  • Experience with the following ATE instruments: High Power SMU, Digitizer and AWG, Digital Card and Power Supplies.
  • Full knowledge of ATE Production Test Eco Syste ms, including Package Handler and Wafer Prober interfaces.
  • Strong Experience software programming an ATE with C++.
