Component Design Engineers are responsible for the design and development of electronic components. Responsibilities may include: the design of chip layout circuit design, circuit checking, device evaluation and characterization, documentation of specifications, prototype construction and checkout, modification and evaluation of semiconductor devices and components, performing developmental and/or test work, reviewing product requirements and logic diagrams, planning and organizing design projects or phases of design projects. Responds to customer/client requests or events as they occur. Develops solutions to problems utilizing formal education and judgement.
A PhD or Master's degree in electrical engineering or related discipline with at least 5-7 years of direct experience in CMOS, interconnect modeling, and characterization.
NVM (NAND/ Emerging memory) experience is strongly preferred but not require
Must have a strong background in semiconductor device physics, design and layout of structures for parametric extraction
Solid understanding of basic analog / digital circuit blocks and model interaction
Extensive experience in BSIM3/4 models and other compact models, extraction tools (ICCAP or MBP) and commercially available simulators (example: HSPICE, SPECTRE, etc.).
Hands-on experience in semiconductor device DC/CV characterization tools, techniques and systems. Experience in test automation and reliability test is a plus.
Hands-on experience in C, C++ and/or python programming.
Experienced in Cadence design environment, including schematic capture, analog design environment and virtuoso layout design, DRC, LVS, and layout extractions.
Solid understanding of Aging Simulations and reliability methodologies and tools.
Experience with device simulation tools (e.g. Medici/ Atlas) is preferred but not required
Demonstrated leadership skills in defining model development roadmap and aligning goals with the design/ TD requirements. Must be able to operate in a matrix environment with multiple priorities and deadlines, and have the ability to work with a cross-disciplinary team of external and internal partners.
Strong communication skills
Expert in data and statistical analysis tools (such as JMP, Excel, etc.) and techniques.
