Job Description

About Logic Technology Development
Logic Technology Development (LTD) delivers programs and modules to ramp new process nodes, supports HVM and provides a predictable technology cadence for Intel customers.

About the Role
Intel is in the middle of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. To do this it requires focused enthusiastic leaders. Join LTD and help create the next generation of technologies that will touch the lives of people the world over for decades to come.

Principal Engineers at Intel are active technical leaders inside and outside the company. Activities include participation in major industry and academic conferences, voting membership in international standards committees, generation of patents and technical papers.

LTD Pathfinding Engineers are responsible for leading scientific research enabling the pathfinding, technology definition and development of innovative devices, metal stacks and silicon architectures. They explore, design, execute, and analyze pre-silicon and silicon experiments necessary to meet pathfinding specifications for the targeted process technology node. They participate in development of intellectual property. They define type and nature of equipment necessary to exploit understanding gained in process technology research in collaboration with Components Research, external research partners and equipment suppliers. They work effectively with relevant internal and external partners to identify shortcomings, propose, and evaluate modifications to mitigate process integration and design issues. They modify and extend process flows to integrate the many individual steps necessary for the manufacture of complex silicon designs. They develop and test advanced Electronic Design Automation tools, creates flows and scripts to analyze and test design methodologies.

Responsibilities/Duties:

  • Collaborate with Components Research (CR) as well as external research partners to explore new device, metal stack and silicon architecture candidates appropriate for pathfinding as well as work with the competitive analysis team to better understand the competitive landscape and the technology definition team to smoothly coordinate the transition from CR-to-pathfinding-to-technology definition-to-development.
  • Use EDA tools, flows/scripts and methodologies to assess impact of potential process feature and module candidates, and their impact on RO-based and block-level PPA and cost.
  • Explore, design, execute, and analyze pre-silicon and silicon experiments necessary to meet pathfinding specifications for the targeted process technology node. Use the silicon experiment results to calibrate pre-silicon emulations and simulations to ensure reasonable range of accuracy.
  • Collaborate with the pathfinding, technology definition and competitive analysis teams to complete various assessments relevant during pathfinding phase of process technology development. Work effectively with relevant internal and external partners to identify shortcomings, propose, and evaluate modifications to mitigate process integration and design issues.
  • Regularly participate in the development of intellectual property, which are then patented to ensure that novel ideas and inventions are appropriate accrued and protected.
  • Define type and nature of fabrication equipment necessary to exploit understanding gained in process technology research (in collaboration with Components Research, external research partners and equipment suppliers).
  • Modify and extend process flows to integrate the many individual steps necessary for the manufacture of complex silicon designs, so that detailed emulation and simulation work can be appropriately conducted.
