Requisition ID: 63004 

Job Description

This person will manage all aspects of incoming epitaxial material for manufacture of HBT and pHEMT based IC’s on GaAs substrates in a high volume and fast paced production environment. Selection and optimization of epi material for maximization of product yields and quality, as well as driving epi quality with suppliers will be an important part of this role. Qualification of epi reactors at suppliers and management of supply of qualified epi material to support rapidly changing production demands is another important part of this person’s role.

The required strengths include:

•    In depth knowledge of epitaxial growth techniques such as MBE, MOCVD with emphasis in growth of compound semiconductors
•    Understanding of material stack-ups and their influence on HBT, pHEMT/HEMT, and MESFET device performance
•    Ability to engage with epi suppliers to drive process repeatability/quality improvements, based on assessment of electrical and process variability using statistical methods
•    Strong in procedures and data driven by maintaining control documents critical to high volume manufacturing
•    Ability to plan ahead on reactor qualifications, ramp planning, risk analysis and work with epi suppliers to realize epitaxial material capacity to meet production goals 
•    Strong analytical and leadership skills and schedule driven with an emphasis in quality 
•    Ability to write/update epitaxial material specifications, including wafer acceptance criteria, working with development, quality, process and manufacturing engineering teams

Desired Qualifications:

•    Understanding of device fabrication process steps, yield analysis and DC/RF device parameters are a plus
•    A B.S. or higher degree in a technical field, such as Electrical Engineering, Material Science, Chemical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Physics, etc.
