We are currently looking for a creative and talented individual with a passion for technology to drive reliability and qualification of hardware products to meet and exceed our consumers' durability expectations. The candidate's primary responsibility will be development and implementation of methodologies and techniques to enhance product reliability.
The candidate will be required to analyze and verify engineering design concepts of electro and opto-mechanical products using simulation and test tools. He/she
will be expected to propose design improvement based on analyses results.
The candidate should have experience in using Physics-of-Failure
based approach to develop and implement accelerated tests to mitigate risks and qualify engineering designs during product development.
The individual should be able to use knowledge of product design and manufacturing to develop Failure Modes
and Effects Analysis
should be able to perform Finite Element Analysis
) to evaluate product (mechanical and thermal) functional performance as well as address overstress and fatigue-related durability problems. He/she
is expected to be familiar with using acceleration models for common failure mechanisms in electronic products to estimate product service life.
should be capable of applying Design
) concepts to develop test plans to improve product robustness and performance. Knowledge
of statistical techniques and models is required to analyze test data and estimate product life cycle performance.
The candidate will use knowledge of electronic package design as well as qualification methodologies for silicon and packages to support qualification of ASICs
