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.


Is this a great match for you?


Senior ASIC Controller Quality Engineer, under the Non-Volatile group of Global Quality, is responsible for setting the strategy, methodology, and direction for quality and reliability for all Micron Controllers. The job requires a motivated individual who works with minimal supervision in a global team environment. Micron is developing next generation memory solutions in which world-class quality controllers are an essential ingredient. The controller QRA engineer can make a direct impact on the quality of these next generation Micron memory products.

In this position, the Controller Quality Reliability Engineer (QRA) should be experienced in all aspects of ASIC quality and reliability engineering.  The QRA engineer will participate in the product development life cycle and will collaborate with ASIC product development teams across Architecture, Design, Fab process, Foundry management, package, and Test.  You will define qualification plans and requirements for internal designs and third-party IP’s. 

In High Volume Manufacturing (HVM), the QRA engineer will work with external suppliers to ensure controller quality monitor requirements are met.  This includes planning and executing device level monitors such as HTOL and package reliability monitors such as Temperature cycling, Biased HAST and High Temperature Storage.  The QRA engineer will address failures encountered in either HVM or monitors.  This includes taking units through failure isolation and failure analysis.  The QRA engineer will write the qualification and monitor reports.

Knowledge and experience of Automotive Quality and Reliability requirements as they apply to ASIC controller chips and at the foundry is a must.  The successful candidate is expected to have strong analytical skills, tolerance for ambiguity and the ability to work in a team environment.  Strong written and oral communication skills with the ability to explain technical concepts to both engineers and senior managers is also a must.


You will be driving the following:

  • Establish use conditions of the product essential for controller qualification planning
  • Work with Foundry teams to ensure Automotive Reliability conditions are met in product development and during qualification
  • Ensure the DFx aspects (design for reliability, design for test, design for debugging) are adequately designed into the controller
  • Review the qualification plan and support its execution across the extended teams
  • Ensure product health across fab and assembly by way of monitor plans
  • Resolve quality and reliability issues by doing risk assessment and creating mitigation plans across product development or high-volume manufacturing
  • Interpret reliability failures in the context of product risk assessment, assessing the failure statistics and providing mitigation plans

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Experience in semiconductor reliability and qualification of automotive ASIC products.
  • Knowledge of reliability stresses such as ELFR, HTOL, Biased HAST, ESD and Latch-Up
  • Understanding of semiconductor FAB manufacturing process, FAB related defects, and failure modes
  • Understanding of ESD and LU testing methodology and failure mechanisms
  • Cross-functional experience and ability to work with Architects, design engineering, Product Engineering, Test Engineering, Packaging, Foundry management, and Failure Analysis teams
  • Experience in Packaging, Assembly-related defects, and Package to Die interaction is a plus
  • Candidate must possess a Bachelor’s degree with 5 to 7 years of experience or Master’s degree with 3 to 5 years of experience in Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, Mechanical Engineering or related field.  

Preferred Qualifications:

In addition to the minimum qualifications, the candidate will have experience in one or more of the following:

  • Design for Reliability assessment and mitigation methods
  • Design for Test, design for Burn In techniques
  • Soft Error Rate assessment and mitigation techniques
  • Electrical measurement and characterization of semiconductor devices
  • Experience in VLSI circuit, and analog design
  • Understanding of reliability failure mechanisms and statistics
  • Design of Experiments
  • Experience with statistical software such as JMP
  • Skills in programming or scripting languages such as C,C++, PERL, Python, SQL
