Your main responsibilities will be to

  • Daily follow-up of all Spectricity-related activities at the semiconductor foundry including lot movements, inline and EOL data, quality issues, etc.
  • Collect and analyze critical inline and EOL data to check and anticipate processes and yield performances.
  • Work hands-on on critical processes and metrology equipment in collaboration with foundry engineers.
  • Follow up the status and usage of consigned equipment in the foundry, and develop a suitable schedule for maintenance and improvement of the equipment.
  • Work proactively with fellow assignee and foundry engineers towards high yield processing by investigating failure modes, looking into SPC data, identifying root causes for yield losses, and propose solutions.
  • Daily reporting to Spectricity Operations on foundry activities.
  • Carry out product inspections and reviews to determine process performance and defectivity.
  • Systematically organize all process data, documentations and reports.
  • Develop scripts and programs for efficiency improvement and data analysis.
  • Support supply chain activities.

In your role you will

  • Develop professional working relationship with foundry partners based on mutual understanding.
  • Collaborate with fellow Spectricity Foundry Assignee and process & equipment engineers at X-FAB to define and optimize the process technology flow for our products.
  • Collaborate with Spectricity integration team to install process flows in the foundry.
  • Collaborate with partner foundry and Spectricity Operation teams to achieve high-volume manufacturing (HVM) with high yield.
  • Collaborate with Spectricity research teams and world-leading research center to define the next generation technologies, build the roadmap and develop new process capabilities.
  • Use your problem-solving skills and creative thinking to overcome technology and process issues.
  • Gain in depth understanding of our process technology (existing processes, modules and flows, new developments, etc.).
