Product Engineer (Power Management)

Reading, UK

Overview We’re looking for an experienced Product Engineer to work for product reliability and support our engineering team during the entire product life cycle from product definition through product release to end-of-life interfacing primarily with offshore-Fabs and OSATs, independent test houses, and internal engineering teams.

This hands-on position will be responsible for all product engineering activities relating to power semiconductors.

Key Responsibilities And Activities Include

  • Reporting to the Test & Characterization Manager of the Power Management business unit
  • Working with Design and Test Engineering to drive development robust test plans and coverage at wafer-probe and final test.
  • Address testability and bench test converge gaps in ATE production test by working closely with Test engineering on ATE and historical product

  • Align with Test and Design engineering on DFT plan
  • Work closely with Reliability, Design, Packaging, and Test Engineering to provide input on qual plans, Qual / ESD ATE test coverage, and ESD / LU plans.
  • Coordinate and drive all activates with internal design, ops teams and external vendors / labs

  • Identify and manage Rel sub-contractors, defining qualification requirements and organizing the tests such as HTOL, approving results and releasing to production etc
  • Focal point for supporting and driving characterization, qualification requirements. Manage and coordinate Device, Package Level Qualification, and ESD / LU efforts and perform data shift analysis, including Failure Analysis coordination
  • Perform ATE / Bench characterization, analyses data using SPC tools, and issue characterization report
  • Drive ATE-bench correlation activities by working with Test and Design Engineering
  • Use statistical analysis tools to analysis and monitor production yields (e.g. Pareto, boxplots, Control charts, Cpk. etc.)
  • Analyze characterization report and set production guard bands. Assess yield impact and align with Marketing and Design on datasheet limits and production to ensure manufacturability
  • Align with Test on offshore sites’ bring-up and transfer to production. Drive and coordinate new supplier qualification activities
  • Own yields across all suppliers, test time and cost improvements during NPI through end of life. And drive continuous cost reduction efforts
  • Forecast, track, report, and lead test time and yield improvements by working closely with Test, Design, Foundry engineering and offshore facilities to meet target goals milestones during NPI through volume ramp
  • Monitor post-production offshore facilities yields. Drive root cause analysis, drive and implement corrective actions
  • Monitor supplier issues and disposition NPI and production material. Collaborate with various engineering disciplines, operations and suppliers across global sites
  • Support Customer Return for Analysis (CRA / RMA) by validating failures on ATE or bench. Provide feedback to Design Engineering and stakeholders.
  • Drive failure analysis activities by working with internal development teams, Marketing, Apps and FA labs. Drive root cause resolution and implement corrective actions.

    Interface with customers as needed

  • Participate in development of new product deliverables including Process FMEA and Control Plans
  • Education And Experience Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or related discipline, Master’s or PhD preferred
  • 3+ years of experience in a Product Engineering role with focus on power management devices
  • Thorough understanding of TE, PE and Characterization processes necessary for bringing products from NPI through to mass production
  • Strong understanding of all aspects of semiconductor testing from wafer probe through to final product test including various product packaging options such as WLCSP, FCLGA, CuP, and LGA based fully integrated power management modules using advanced 3D packaging technologies
  • Experience in bringing semiconductors through a full suite of characterization and formal qualification tests including ESD, Latch-up, HTOL, HAST, MSL etc
  • Demonstrated experience and understanding of developing test plans suited to various product flows to reduce test cost and streamline production throughput
  • Track record of success in sustaining engineering functions within a high-volume semiconductor environment
  • Familiar with all current procedures for detailed Failure Analysis
  • Experience with Teradyne Flex, Eagle and Cohu ASL1000 platforms
  • Experience in Product Engineering related to power management ICs
  • Established relationships with major fabs and OSATs relevant to analog power semiconductors, and local outsourced test partners for characterization and qual processes
  • Features & Benefits

  • Operates in a professional office environment
  • This role routinely uses standard office equipment
  • Critical, high impact role
  • Managerial potential
  • Visa sponsorship / relocation assistance to be provided by the company
  • Competitive salaries and benefits
  • Personality
