Job Type:  Permanent

The Corporate Process Reliability (CPR) group is looking for a new college graduate in Electrical Engineering with educational experience in analog circuits and semiconductor devices. The job focuses on two aspects of reliability: electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection design/characterization and long-term reliability (wearout) structure design/characterization. Lastly, it will couple these two with failure analysis to understand and evaluate the limitations of circuit elements. This job will involve hands on lab testing as well as electrical design.
