As a Reliability Engineer working in the R&D Emerging Memory Technology Group at Micron, you will be working in an industry-leading 300mm R&D facility on technology that enables future memory scaling. You will focus on Reliability characterization of memories such as PCM, RRAM, STT, Nanotube, 3D, Crosspoint, FBC, etc., both for non-volatile, and volatile memories. The Reliability Engineer will be responsible for the development of memory-test patterns, analyzing electrical failures, improvement of yield and of overall cell performance, debug, design, simulation, and implementation of circuit and process changes on test chips. In addition to a broad basis of Reliability knowledge, you have device physics expertise and a deep understanding of Semiconductor Device Physics including CMOS, bipolar, diodes, etc. You interact significantly with simulation, modeling, characterization, design, and product groups.
Responsibilities include, but not limited to:
  • Design reliability experiments and coordinate their execution for emerging memory cells, selector and access devices, thin-film transistors, and CMOS. Analyze array reliability and support process qualification of emerging memory technologies to enable new product development and manufacturability.
  • Understand array reliability failure modes, the underlying physical mechanisms, and test methods for accelerating those mechanisms.
  • Perform statistical analysis of array data collected across a variety of test platforms, including single die, wafer level, and lot level.
  • Develop reliability models using customer usage models, acceleration factor modeling, detection methods, qualification methods, etc.
  • Evaluate in-line, probe, parametric, and back-end data.
  • Collaborate with test engineers to enable volume data collection at wafer and unit level.
  • Utilize engineering test stations to design, implement and analyze array characterization experiments.
  • Perform, Correlate, and analyze array reliability and characterization testing to product reliability.
  • Gain an understanding of array architecture and circuits, as well as cell properties, functionality, and reliability through multi-functional interaction.
  • Devise and execute experiments to evaluate memory cell capabilities and properties and the effects on reliability, functionality, and performance.
  • Develop and support test chips, gather and disseminate data.
  • Work with design and process integration engineers to provide requirements and validate the functionality of test chips to explore array device physics.
  • Perform tests and propose testing solutions to generate data.
  • Analyze data and provide feedback to process integration and design to enable process and design improvements.
  • Define, support, and capture data on media management techniques, on-chip, and in-system to improve performance and reliability of end product.
  • Support analysis of existing systems, using knowledge of design, device, and reliability to propose exploration paths.
  • Distill system knowledge and device knowledge into proposals for memory management features.
  • Support media management exploration with experiments and data analysis to validate assumptions and virtually qualify media management techniques.
  • Present data in a clear and concise format, using appropriate plot/method to best convey conclusions.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills required
  • Excellent problem-solving, analytical, organizational, and team-building skills
  • The ability to work in teams and work well with others and be a self-starter with a strong work ethic is also critical for this job.

  • You have a detailed knowledge of mainstream memory technologies such as DRAM, NAND, NOR, & SRAM acquired through significant industry experience.
  • Expertise in device physics.
  • You are very familiar with both Process Integration & Circuit/Architecture issues as they relate to memory.
  • You are proficient with data analysis, DOE, and statistical techniques.

  • MS or Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or other related technical field is required.
