This engineering position will be part of the Cree Power & RF Reliability and Failure Analysis team that supports SiC Schottky diodes, SiC MOSFETs, SiC Power Modules, and GaN HEMT-MMICs. The position requires electrical and physical analysis of component failures followed by comprehensive report writing.
What can we do for you?
This position provides the opportunity to apply experience in failure analysis, wafer fabrication, plus academic knowledge to solve process and failure issues. The successful candidate will also learn a vast array of analytical tools and processes as they apply to state-of-the-art SiC-based MOSFETs, Schottky diodes, and RF components. Work with some of the latest analytical tools such as scanning acoustic microscopes, dual beam focused ion milling systems, infrared and photon detection systems, laser ablation systems and plasma etchers. Ample opportunity is provided for advancement within the failure analysis team.
What you do for us?
Perform, and provide results from, failure analysis techniques such as wet and dry chemistry processing and a host of other analytical tools.
Obtain and explain data from SEM and EDS systems.
Generate detailed reports clearly describing the findings of failure analysis investigations
Interpret electrical specification sheets and apply that information to Curve Tracer and Thermal-emission applications
Work closely with Reliability and Device engineering teams in support of new product development and qualification.
Must be able to work in a team environment
Create work instructions for use by the entire FA team.
What you need for success:
4-year degree in electronics, electronic engineering, physics, or related field; or equivalent
2 years' experience in electrical component Failure Analysis
experience in acquiring and interpreting data from SEM and EDS
Good written and verbal communication skills
Ability to manage multiple projects in progress and complete them on time.
Flexibility to handle sudden changes to priorities and learn new skills in an R&D environment
Working knowledge of device technology
Highly preferred skills and certifications:
Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, or Chemistry
University lab experience or previous work experience directly related to SiC technology
Experience testing discrete devices such as diodes, MOSFETs and HEMTs, under DC and RF conditions
Failure analysis or fab process experience related to Power and RF applications
Processing experience related to wet and dry chemistries
Mechanical knowledge with respect to fixturing and custom test platforms.
At Cree, we've spent more than 30 years developing industry firsts as a leader in wide bandgap semiconductor technology. Not familiar with all of our products? That is because we are a part of the invisible revolution; if we do our job right you will never know we were there. Our products make impossible possible like our LEDs that power cities to our Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) components that power electric vehicles, solar energy, telecommunications and industrial, military and aerospace solutions.
We believe in enabling the world to do more with less. That's why we encourage each other to think unconventionally, take ownership and solve real problems. Interested in a career at Cree? We want to meet you. Submit your application now.
