BEOL Integration Engineer
What you will do
- Work in the Advanced Technology Platform Team, as a Integration Engineer, to support two major areas of work:
- Technology Transfer: Utilizing the deep technical expertise of imec, the ATP team works with customer collaboration to setup established technology node processes at customer sites, expanding the width of the semiconductor industry.
- Platform Synergy activity: Determine the optimal processes and conditions to provide consistently effective results, utilizing windowing and process margin understanding. This activity touches a diverse range of programs, from very advanced CMOS, Si Photonics, 3D integration, Life Sciences, Sensors, and Tech Transfer needs. A highly visible, broadly impacting role.
- You will have to discuss process splits with the characterization and/or process step development engineers, to implement the splits into the process flow and take care of the follow-up in imec's advanced 300mm FAB.
- You will have to understand the interactions between the BEOL modules as well as the implications of the characterization and electrical data and guide development work with these interactions in mind.
