Job Description

The Manufacturing Product Engineering's SOC team is looking for a Product Development Engineer (PDE) who is passionate about working on the leading-edge products, debugging and solving technical issues and delivering the best products in the market to the customer. You would be responsible for ensuring the testability and manufacturability of integrated circuits from the component feasibility stage through production ramp. This could include evaluation, development and debug of test methods. Creating and testing validation and production test hardware solutions. Analyzing and evaluating component specification versus performance to ensure optimal yield while delivering to test time and quality goals. Analyzing early customer returns with emphasis on driving test hole closure activities. Creating innovative solutions to optimize quality and cost constraints.

As a PDE you will need to collaborate worldwide with cross-functional teams including design, validation, software, high volume manufacturing (HVM) and fabs, to develop, deliver and validate functional, analog and structural test content for Client Chipset/SOC products. During post Si engagement close collaborations is needed with system, Silicon Bench Validation and Test teams to identify and close production issues.

In this role, PDE may be part of a team that supports system and/or electrical validation. It requires both pre and post Si engagement to ensure design and test content robustness, ultimately delivering highest quality products to customers. In some cases, working with content, Basic Input Output System (BIOS), automation teams to develop manufacturing test solutions and its deployment to high volume factories. PDE may be supporting part of Platform Control Hub (PCH) team in charge of electrical validation of latest and greatest High Speed IO technologies.

An ideal candidate should demonstrate:

  • The ability to work cross-functional team environment

  • Strong written and verbal communication

  • Strong problem solving and prioritization ability


You must possess the education and minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.

  • Experience with Automated Test Equipment (ATE) or system level debug of chipsets and/or CPUs.

  • Post-Si testing and validation on package interfaces.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • DFT, hardware testing methods and tools

  • Silicon debug and characterization of new Ips (EG: PCIe Gen4/5, SATA etc.) including working with platform and system level validation teams to identify and close silicon issues

  • Debug and validation experience of mixed (analog/digital) circuitry

  • Pre-Si validation of test content at IP and full chip level, including test writing and simulating

  • Analysis and disposition of early customer returns to drive understanding of design marginalities or develop test content to screen these units where needed

  • Experience in cost reduction, or quality improvement efforts, on Class or Wafer Sort tests

  • Familiar with statistical analysis

  • Bench design validation using oscilloscope and BERTs

  • Basic Python, Perl or C scripting

  • Manufacturing flow knowledge

  • Semiconductor device physics and overall semiconductor testing

  • Lean/Agile, Lean Six Sigma or other process improvement tool knowledge
