In this role you are responsible for the definition of the production strategy, contribute to Time-To-Market, characterization plan, qualification plan, volume ramp-up plan, optimize costs by streamlining test software as well as test infrastructure in Europe and offshore.

  • 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, wafer fabs and Assembly centers.
  • During the evaluation phase of the new silicon the Product Engineer contributes to the validation and characterization process, executing and reporting on ESD, Latch-Up, temperature characterizing. Next to that, you will evaluate rejects of life-test experiments and evaluate the product performance using Shmoo and other techniques. You are responsible for the alignment and setting of datasheet limits, test limits to ensure operational performance.
  • During the Industrialization phase the Product Engineer 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.
