Defect Elimination Engineer
**General Description**
Samsung Austin Semiconductor (SAS) is one of the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing facilities in the United States, producing logic components for smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Since 1997, SAS has been at the forefront of manufacturing technology, enabling the world's digital devices to operate at the highest performance. The Defect Elimination (DE) group are in charge of SAS fab inline defect monitoring, control and improvement. At 2016, DE group broadened responsibilities and coverages to meet SAS expectations: continuous defect reduction and yield improvement on 14nm products and legacy nodes, Foundry product audit & yield up support, new product introduction, excursion and low yield reduction, etc. However, DE group do not have enough manpower to support all these critical projects. This DE requisition form is to request 2 new engineer openings: one req to support NPI tasks (including 65nm tech introduction) and line defect/yield coverage, another req to support GPM, spec audits for NPI product roll-out, and related foundry project coverage. As a Defect Elimination Engineer, the candidate will support defect control and reduction work in a high volume 24x7 manufacturing environment, on purpose to achieve yield and performance goals.
* Supporting New Product Introduction (NPI) as the DE representative: attending meetings, presenting inline inspection strategy & methodology, supporting GPM set up, spec audits, and comparison, evaluating unit part process changes and tool spreads in terms of inline and NPW defectivity data.
* Performing fab process/tool trend data and correlation analysis to identify dog tools, trace defects to root cause, and rapidly take action to prevent inline process excursions.
* Working cross-functionally with YE/PIE/UP to evaluate defect data on BKMs & projects, excursion monitoring & control, SWLY reduction.
* Establishing FCC (Failed Chip Count) and trend monitoring plans for new technology introductions and ramps (14nm & foundry) and existing legacy production nodes (45nm/32nm/28nm) in order to achieve yield and performance goals, and support on weekly module meetings & activities.
* Responding to foundry customer requests and delivering the data & analysis to meet expectation.
* Supporting new technology and process transfer projects from Samsung HQ (South Korea).
**Necessary Skills / Attributes**
* Requires a Bachelor's degree in Electrical, Chemical, Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, Chemistry, Physics or related technical fields.
* Requires a minimum of 2 years of Semiconductor process engineering experience in defect monitor and reduction.
* Experience in leading logic technology (45nm or below) development is strongly preferred.
* Relevant experience in advanced defect inspection and review tools (bright field, dark field, e-beam, Vis-edge...etc) is strongly preferred.
* Knowledge of Klarity Defect (or similar) software and its application in a semiconductor processing environment is useful.
* Working knowledge in SPC and DOE methodology is required
* Excellent communication skills (written, verbal and presentation) and experience as a contributing member of cross functional teams is required.
* Strong data mining, troubleshooting skills, and an energetic/self starter personality preferred.
* Strong organizational skills to manage multiple tasks and able to react to shifting priorities.
* Ability to meet deadlines, schedules and commitments is required.
* Candidates must be authorized to work in the USA for any employer, without transfer or sponsorship of any kind.
