RSD-Packaging Process Development Leader

Job Description

As a Packaging Process Development Leader, you'll be part of Intel's Silicon Photonics team that is leading the 400G-market transition and driving innovation for next generation of optical interconnect products.

You will play a critical role in the next generation silicon photonics wafer and chip level packaging and assembly designs.

Specific job responsibilities include:

  • Provide semi-conductor packaging process development leadership to the team.
  • Take Silicon Photonics wafer & chip level packaging and assembly product from concept to HVM release through an OSAT partner.
  • Leveraging expertise in development of advanced packaging technology and processes and expertise in substrate materials and molding compound materials, work with cross-functional teams to select the optimized package solution, e.g., FCBGA, FCMCM, WLCSP fan-in, wafer/panel-level fan-out, chip-on-chip, package-on-package, stacked-die, TSV Si-interposer, etc.
  • Perform Failure/Root cause analysis and feedback to OSAT assembly process, SPC metrics to achieve high end-to-end assembly yield
  • Drive DFx for IC packaging design and assembly, Process FMEA, characterization and monitoring
  • Review substrate/IC design files, Provide assembly process related constraint file to aid package designs.
  • Provide DFM based DRCs and BKM design methods for IC pad/bump design and substrate/package/PCB designs e.g., Cadence Allegro Package DesignerDrive stress and temperature modeling to validate packaging and process architecture
  • Lead collaborative reviews with key stakeholders and executive sponsors
  • Oversee and lead the OSAT packaging process development effort from concept through initial production rampPartner with Module HW, Mechanical, Photonics, IC, SW/FWTest, Operations and Reliability teams
