About the job
Texas Instruments is looking for an energetic engineer with a passion for process. This position provides the opportunity to drive continual improvement at all levels. As a Factory Controls Engineer you are responsible for working with Fab Engineering to improve at-tool detection and reduce run-to-run process variation by implementing various Fault Detection and Classification (FDC) or Automated Process Control (APC) methods. You will work as a member of the DMOS6 Engineering team in a high-volume manufacturing environment. The role requires developing innovative FDC/APC solutions to reduce unscheduled tool downtime, improve process repeatability/reliability, and protect the factory from wafer-loss events.
The responsibilities of a Manufacturing Process Engineer in this role include:
- Support manufacturing operations in a high volume manufacturing 300mm wafer Fab
- Develop and implement improved process run-to-run control (R2R) methods that result in improved efficiencies, yields, machine operations, and quality
- Develop and implement improved equipment fault detection (FDC) systems that yield the same improvements
- Identify systematic problems in either process or equipment related sources and communicating findings to the engineering staff in a continuous manner
- Support the manufacturing ramp with execution of R2R and FDC systems that accelerate equipment/process startup and process experiments
- Participate in data analysis and problem resolution
- 3+ years relevant experience
- Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a related field
- Strong foundation in statistical process control, engineering change control and process release strategies
- Experience working in high-volume semiconductor manufacturing environment
- Demonstrated strong analytical and problem solving skills
- Strong verbal and written communication skills
- Ability to work in teams and collaborate effectively with people in different functions
- Strong time management skills that enable on-time project delivery
- Demonstrated ability to build strong, influential relationships
- Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment
- Ability to take the initiative and drive for results
- Experience with R2R software (eg. ProcessWORKS, E3, Fabguard)
- Experience with FDC software (eg. TIMS, Artist, E3, Fabguard)
- Comfortable in a Unix or Linux environment with the command line
- Experience with scripting languages Perl or Python
