Intel Packaging R&D Engineer (LYA Engineer) in Phoenix, Arizona

Job Description

Low Yield Analysis (LYA) engineers are responsible for process and defect characterization as well as end-of-line electrical test fail analysis of the substrate and assembly process and identifying key mechanisms that contribute to ultimate root cause identification. Engineers will be expected to conduct hands on lab work, define data acquisition strategies and data analysis plans, and recommend corrective actions/fixes to internal customers. The LYA engineer will utilize strong presentation skills to influence individual process engineers as well as platform teams. Analysis will include both physical failure analysis (FA) and electrical fault isolation (FI) collection. The LYA engineer will also interact with a large team of technicians and provide guidance and mentoring on a wide variety of FI/FA methods and strategies. Other duties may include process and defect characterization and developing innovative techniques/approaches to accelerate failure identification and root cause mechanism understanding. LYA engineers will be expected to provide consultation concerning packaging/assembly challenges and work with partner organizations towards improvements in the manufacturing process. The ability to rapidly respond to customer requests or events as they occur while developing solutions utilizing formal education and engineering judgment is anticipated.
