As a product Engineer, you lead the definition of the productization strategy. Contribute to Time-To-Market, characterization plan, qualification plan, volume ramp-up plan and cost optimization
In the definition phase of a new product, you will represent Product Engineering in a multidisciplinary team to develop the validation & characterization strategy.
You will specify the DfX (Design for Analysis, Yield, Manufacturability) requirements. You will act as liaison between different disciplines inside and outside the Product Line with Test Engineers, IC designers / IC architects, Quality Engineers, FA engineers, wafer fabs and Assembly centers.
During the evaluation phase of the new silicon, you participate in the validation and characterization process. This includes the definition of a semi-automated test setup, executing and reporting on ESD, Latch-Up, AMR and temperature characterization.
You are responsible for the alignment and setting of datasheet limits, test limits to ensure operational performance.
During the Industrialization phase, you will prepare the product for mass production & coordinate the safe-launch and volume ramp-up.
Thereby you will analyze the 1st production results and write the Industrial Producibility Report to provide evidence to the stakeholders that the product is suitable for mass production.
Besides of project execution, you will initiate and lead teams to improve the quality & output efficiency.
Cooperate in multidisciplinary teams (like test engineering, design, quality, product marketing, assembly, manufacturing, diffusion, customer complaint handling, failure analysis, etc.)
Transfer of ownership to satellite teams in production sites and support them to meet Entitlement targets on test cost and yield.
Opportunities to travel to Far East locations like test and assembly sites Thailand, Taiwan and China or diffusion site Singapore.
Interaction with different disciplines within our organization is needed and essential to make you successful in this role.
