Req. ID: 170386 


Micron in Taiwan

Micron’s global footprint is designed to deliver comprehensive customer collaboration, support and quality around the world and throughout the product lifecycle. Taiwan plays a meaningful role in strengthening Micron’s position in leading-edge DRAM.

Micron’s Taiwan sites include sales and technical support in Taipei along with state-of-the-art fabrication facilities in Taichung and Taoyuan that together comprise the company’s DRAM Center of Perfection. The Center’s goal is to achieve the most efficient and effective technology transfer and manufacturing ramp by combining front- and back-end manufacturing, product engineering and technology development roles.




Job Description

As a Product Quality & Reliability EFA Engineer at Micron Technology, Inc., you will be responsible for the electrical characterization and electrical failure analysis (EFA) of all DRAM product types. You will need to distinguish its package related failures or device related. You need to have DRAM functionality, process, test program and device knowledge to make the judgment. You will also use a variety of test tools including the uMate testers, Probers, CAD layout tools, and a variety of technical drawings and schematics to perform detailed characterization. You will log and sort failures in order to determine particular failure mechanisms characteristics. In this role you will communicate with various engineering groups, assist lab users with equipment setup and interpretation of data, and maintain EFA database. You will also be expected to seek ways to improve the EFA process in order to reduce test time, increase throughput, and increase failure mechanism assignment accuracy and consistency.
