Working on behalf of a leading maker of GaAs RF ICs that go into defense and wireless applications. They acquired Metelics ; a full line of silicon and(GaAs diodes, germanium (Ge) tunnel diodes, HBT amplifiers, resistors, inductors, capacitors, switches, NLTL comb generators and integrated devices. Products are available in wafer, chip and packaged for defense, Hi-Rrel EW and radar applications.
They are looking for a Device/ Process Engineer located in Lowell, MA. We need strong Device physics with Diodes, GaAs or Silicon Devices, and can do Device Simulation (Silvaco atlas or Athena). We need good experiences in transferring and optimizing processes.. We need a process integration type who understands the front end process broadly, and can optimize process by mining data, and using statistical tools to improve yields. Prefer experience Diodes, GaAs, Silicon ICs.
Need BSEE or MSEE with 5 + years’ experience. Need green card or better.
We are seeking a Device/Integration Engineer with experience in the design and fabrication of silicon based semiconductor devices. The primary responsibility of this position will be to design and fabricate silicon discrete devices to meet all electrical and mechanical specifications defined in our product datasheets. The secondary responsibility will be to identify and resolve device performance and yield anomalies pertinent to the design, fabrication or test. The candidate will need a working knowledge of semiconductor materials, theory, and fabrication techniques as they relate to the manufacture of single and multi-junction silicon diodes such as zeners, varactors, current regulators, high speed rectifiers and step recovery diodes as well as passive elements such as capacitors, inductors and resistors.
The scopes of work entails interpreting customer specifications and translating them into material and process specific parameters, as well as provide in-process and final test instructions to characterize the device. The tactical responsibilities of this position will require the evaluation, compilation, and analysis of test data to determine appropriate variables and limits for process/device definition. The Device/Integration Engineer is required to maintain and/or create supporting source control documentation, using the company engineering information systems tools, to document every aspect of the design, fabrication and test, specific to the manufacture of the final device.
B.S. Minimum, Masters preferred in Engineering (EE preferred) or material physics and 5+ years of experience directly related to silicon semiconductor devices.
• Familiar with semiconductor fabrication technology.
• Data analysis and statistical skills with proven ability to evaluate, analyse and present data
• Experienced in the use of statistical tools such as SPC, gage R&R, DOE and FMEA methodalogies for problem solving.
• Excellent communication skills
• Must be a self-starter and detail-oriented
• Ability to work in a fast-paced, demanding, dynamic environment
• Strong personal computer skills, proficient at using simulation software (e.g. ADS, Silvaco, Cadence)
• Ability to work well across multi-functional teams.
The ideal candidate would possess knowledge of semiconductor materials and fabrication techniques as it applies to the integration of various individual process/fabrication steps to form a cohesive device.
