Product Validation Engineer (Circuit Marginality Validation)

Hillsboro, Oregon, Amerika Syarikat ID Pekerjaan JR0258612 Kategori Kerja Silicon Hardware Engineering Mod Kerja Hybrid Tahap Pengalaman Experienced Jenis Waktu Bekerja Sepenuh Masa

Job Description

Role and Responsibilities:

Defines and executes validation test methods and test plans for system level test, circuit marginality, and/or product platform validation (PPV) to ensure testability and manufacturability of Intel products. Drives test planning, execution, data analysis, builds automation and regression scripts, and creates automated verification flows. Understands circuit marginality validation requirements, including process parametric coverage needs within specs, and acts on the marginalities to increase quality such that corrections are put in place to catch the failures. Identifies failure suspects with stress tests and performs debug to root cause issue. Diagnoses and identifies systems issues and designs and validates solutions for complex problems and looks for improvements. Develops and debugs complex test methods and works with software and integration teams to resolve issues and drive quality at the source. Works with architecture, design, and silicon validation teams, process engineering, and volume manufacturing factories to track post-silicon validation efforts and track program readiness. Works with software teams to evaluate integrated system performance and to test and characterize HWSW interaction and device performance at various operating conditions. Develops and executes validation methods and plans for timing and power models for products including FPGA, transceiver, and multichip packages on bench or automatic test equipment. Contributes to the product health indicators (PHI) definition and test whole reduction of defects per million (DPM) for quality. Defines on die thermal requirements including thermal profile characterization. Provides integration and test support and works with developers and other team members to integrate software with existing enterprise services. Defines testing methodologies and solutions to support manufacturing at the platform level. Evaluates, validates, and contributes to new test equipment for platform production and maintains test frameworks and related infrastructure. Creates system validation documentation including risk assessments, validation project plans, user acceptance tests, and reports.

As a Product Validation Engineer, you will be responsible for but not limited to the following:

  • Ensuring automation, testability, and manufacturability of microprocessors and system-on-a-chips integrated circuits from the component feasibility design stage through production ramp.
  • Making significant contributions to design, development, validation, and testability of SOC products and evaluation of circuits.
  • Evaluation, development, and debugging of complex system test methods.
  • Development and debugging of complex software programs to convert design validation vectors and drive complex test equipment.
  • Creating and testing validation and production test hardware and software solutions.
  • Testing, validating, modifying, and redesigning circuits to guarantee component margin to specification.
  • Analyzing and evaluating component specification versus performance to ensure optimal match of component requirements within production equipment capability, with specific emphasis on yield analysis and defect isolation.
  • Analyzing early customer returns with emphasis on driving test hole closure activities.
  • Creating and applying concepts for optimizing component production within quality and cost constraints.
  • Autonomously planning and scheduling own daily tasks, developing solutions to problems, and utilizing formal education and judgment.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.

Minimum Qualifications:

The candidate must possess a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or other STEM related field with 4+ years of relevant experience OR a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering or other STEM related field with 3+ years relevant experience OR a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or other STEM related field and 1+ years of relevant experience.

Relevant experience should be in two or more of the following areas:

  • SOC/CPU product development in system test, HW, SW, and FW integration.
  • Background in ATE/system testing and test flows, test methodology, electronics design, or product development.
  • Knowledge of JTAG, SCAN, and DFx.
  • Software skills (Python, C, Perl, or C# coding).
  • Understanding of basic Intel x86 architecture.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Data collection and statistical analysis methods using scripting, Excel, and JMP/Python.
  • Can apply scientific method to write test plans, design experiments, and create response actions to data for troubleshooting and solving complex problems.
  • Exposure to system platform debug of firmware and hardware including endpoints.
  • Experience with benchtop instruments including DMMs, oscilloscopes, and other similar equipment to collect precision measurements.
  • Exposure to system platform debug of hardware and firmware failure mechanisms.
  • Experience with design and debugging of circuit boards and/or signal integrity issues.
  • Comfortable representing the team by presenting data to key stakeholders and responding to questions.

Requirements listed could be obtained through a combination of industry relevant job experience, internship experiences and or schoolwork/classes/research.
