Performs electrical and physical failure analysis on RF power amplifier products to support the company goal of improving product reliability and performance. Understand, from a reliability standpoint, the materials, properties, process capability and techniques used in production, particularly in GaAs HBT and Si wafer fabrication. Make recommendations for design engineering, process engineering and packaging engineering on selection, manufacturing, application and test of electronic components and systems. Uses electronics and device physics concepts; develop proficiency in operating FA tools, such as X-ray, C-SAM, photon emission microscope, SEM, FIB, etc. Read circuit schematics and layouts, and applies failure analysis procedures to identify the failure location and the root causes (troubleshooting capability). Write failure analysis reports, including charts and photographs. Co-ordinate with design engineering, process engineering and package engineering to correct the product defect or weakness and to improve the product reliability.*LI-LK1
