Microchip Technology Pr. Engineer-Test in Austin, Texas
Microchip’s fast-growing Analog Power and Interface Division (APID) is looking for an experienced and motivated Principle Design For Test (DFT) engineer to participate in a talented test architecture team to define and implement best DFT practices to help make designs more easily testable, more cost effective and provide reusable building blocks that can be used for multiple semiconductor device test applications. This individual should be self-driven, motivated, and capable of embracing a fast paced, continuously evolving, and improving culture. Experience in all stages of new product test development, DFT methodologies and proven design and test skills are critical to this position. The candidate should have excellent communication skills which are required to span across global teams and shared test applications within Microchip.
Perform detailed review of design objective specifications (DOS) and evaluate/define design for testability (DFT) features required
Utilize experience in DFT implementation for analog and mixed-signal testing parameters
Provide technical leadership of DFT architectures
Accompany design projects starting from DOS phase 0.3 (early project definition phase) until RTP (release to production)
Working in close collaboration with various product line teams including design, test, applications, and product engineering, etc.
Define DFT requirements and write detailed DFT manual to be used by design and test team members
Match parameters from Electrical Characteristics table in DOS with critical ATE testing parameters and methods
Apply knowledge of ATE tester instruments and measurement specifications
Employ knowledge of ATE load board restrictions including layout and key testing requirements & accuracies
Cooperate with worldwide cross-functional teams (marketing, application, design, layout, lab, and test engineers)
A university degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering with 8.5+ years experience developing ATE analog/mixed-signal test solutions including DFT applications
Analog design experience/exposure required for close development of DFT IP blocks, ability to read schematics and understand circuit needs and tradeoffs
Experience with analog and mixed-signal ATE platforms (ex: Eagle, Teradyne, SPEA, LTX)
Must possess an in-depth knowledge of analog, power and mixed-signal device theory and test methodology
Understand block diagrams of analog blocks like buck/boost regulators, linear regulators, PMIC's, ADC's, USB, and motor power delivery circuits
Understand device behavior and modes in terms of observability and controllability using different test conditions and possible impact on ATE tests
Have experience with Cadence Virtuoso or similar tool and ability to read design circuit schematics
Strong analytical, and problem-solving skills with an understanding of semiconductor test and FA methods
Must possess excellent communication skills and ability to work in a global multi-functional team environment
