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 Engineering (DE) group are in charge of SAS fab inline defect monitoring, control and improvement. DE group has a mission to meet SAS expectations: continuous defect reduction and yield improvement on 14nm and legacy nodes, new product introduction, Foundry & Automotive product audit & customer support, fab defect interlock & OOC event improvement, excursion and low yield reduction, etc.

As a Defect Engineer, you will work on first shift, Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm, in a high volume 24x7 manufacturing environment. You will support technology development and implementation efforts by providing defect control and reduction expertise in order to achieve yield and performance goals.

Specific Job Duties:

As a Defect 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 Defect engineering 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 (65nm/45nm/32nm/28nm) in order to achieve yield and performance goals, and support on weekly module meetings & activities.
