Primary responsibility to work on all aspects of hands-on test development, test hardware design, yield enhancements, debugging, characterization, production implementation and high-volume ramp-up of IC products. Responsible for the product test solution from product inception all the way through end of life of the product.

Main duties for this role include but are not limited to:

  • Interface with design groups and product engineering to ensure manufacturability of the product, including testability, yield, and quality

  • First silicon verification and device bring up using ATE tools and bench equipment

  • Develop test methods and generate/convert test vectors to support product validation, bench correlation, characterization, and production release.

  • Deliver qual program including Burn-In vector generation, validation, and conversion to be used at 3rd party Burn-In vendor.

  • Work with planning and product engineering to support customer sampling requirements

  • In case 3rd party IP is integrated with the product, ensure manufacturability, yield, and testability of 3rd party IP

  • Deliver production test program for both wafer and package level test programs

  • Design and develop required test hardware – Load board, bench board, and the probe card.

  • Manage test program transfer to overseas test-house

  • Maintain traceability of production test program flow

  • Drive ongoing cost reduction for the product (test time reduction, yield optimization)

  • Ensure reliable FA flow is supported to close potential test holes

  • Day to day management of test partner(s)

Minimum qualification for this role:

  • 6-10 years of professional work experience as a test engineer in the fabless semiconductor industry, shipping volume production

  • B.Sc, M.Sc in EE preferred

  • Fluent with Teradyne or Advantest test platforms

  • Ability to independently lead the test-development efforts

  • Experience with ATPG and SCAN/MBIST bring-up, validation, and debug on ATE tester

  • Technical skills in evaluating/debugging digital and analog/mixed-signal circuits

  • Experience with bench and system-level testing is a plus

  • DFT experience is a plus

  • Candidate has been responsible to drive silicon products into high-volume production with tier-1 customers

  • Experience with automotive products is a plus

  • Experience with embedded flash technology is a plus

  • Delivered test solutions in advanced CMOS process nodes

  • Proven debugging skills

  • Great team player, communicator, and collaborator

  • Role is based in Irvine and will require occasional travel to meet with customers and suppliers
