Job Description

The job role is in the Corporate Quality Networks (CQN) technology development organization, which is responsible for ensuring the successful definition, research, pathfinding and certification of Intels Logic and SOC technologies.  The front-end group focus is on transistor reliability aspects of technology development including specifying transistor architecture features, geometries, process optimization, design rules, electrical characterization, and models used by circuit designers and product engineers.

The Technology Reliability R&D Engineer will be responsible for but not limited to:

  • Help develop leading-edge logic process technologies that will be used in future CPU and SOC products by ensuring the front-end-of-line and transistors meet reliability requirements.
  • The key focus area for this job role is to develop physics-based and empirical models and methods to quantify transistor reliability interactions with circuits and products. These models and methods will be used by various teams including circuit designers, product reliability engineers, test engineers, and process development engineers.
  • The job may additionally include developing and conducting electrical tests to quantify transistor reliability behavior and identify new fail modes that may be present in emerging technologies.
  • Developing reliability models and methods to capture technology reliability behavior.
  • Designing and executing experiments to determine the necessary parameters for reliability model development and validation.
  • Developing new acceleration techniques and analytical tools to assure the early identification of potential reliability problems with new products, manufacturing processes, and transistor architecture.
  • Advising design engineering on selection, application and test of electronic components and systems.
  • Collaboration with cross functional teams to solve technical / reliability issues during technology development and ramp to high-volume manufacturing.
  • Recommending process technology certification evaluation and acceptance criteria.
  • Recommending material, design or test methods and statistical process control procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability.

Partners may include Logic Technology Development (LTD), wafer Fab Manufacturing and Test (FSM), Assembly and Test Manufacturing (ATM), Intel Foundry Services, and partners within Intel's Customer Quality Network (CQN) focused on Product, Development, and Manufacturing Reliability.
