Micron currently have openings for Process Development Engineers within the Advanced Packaging Technology Development organization. In this role, you will join an existing team of dedicated engineers responsible for researching, developing, characterizing, and transferring process solutions for wafer level 3D-Interconnect (3DI), Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC), Fan-Out packaging and other cutting-edge advanced packaging products. Currently this group is in need of exceptional team members focused in the process areas of Photolithography, Metrology/Inspection, Wet Process, Etch, CMP, PVD, CVD, Electroplating, and Temporary Wafer Bonding. As a member of our team you will play a crucial role in development of next generation processes and equipment required for enablement of advanced semiconductor package products. You will design experiments, conduct evaluations and propose process solutions utilizing innovative process materials and process equipment. This will require you to build and maintain effective constructive relationships with equipment and chemical suppliers. In this position, you will be required to interface with other Packaging and Semiconductor technologists within the international Micron team. Other major responsibilities include process maturity and characterization activities and involvement with the deployment of processes and equipment to Pilot and HVM manufacturing facilities. Opportunities for expanding process knowledge in many process areas also exist and will be encouraged. Please consider joining us as part of the of the 3DI process team dedicated to development and bring to market vertical stacked memory die solutions for Micron's constantly expanding memory products.

General Responsibilities and Tasks:

  • Translate stated package and stack construction requirements into measureable process requirements.
  • Drive process development and identify metrics based on stated requirements.
  • Develop quality assurance and quality control schemes for owned processes.
  • Provide development leadership from initial experimentation through manufacturing introduction.
  • Contribute knowledge and requirements to various teams to procure, install, and qualify equipment.
  • Work directly with key equipment suppliers to develop their equipment and processes to meet Micron's technological needs for 3Di devices.
  • Work directly with chemical analysis labs and equipment suppliers, and others to ensure best practices and compatibility with Micron's processes and to help drive the solutions for Micron's technical needs.
  • Transfer processes to HVM facilities, and ensure proper documentation of requirements for equipment and facilities, metrology, quality control, and procedures.
