  • Understands pad wear and pad lifetime and knows when to schedule pad conditioning and replace pads and other consumable items to maintain a reproducible and reliable process.
  • Defines a CMP statistical process control method for development and pilot production volumes of wafers. Monitors the CMP process by responding to in-line issues and dispositions of production wafers.
  • Coordinates the scheduling of process qualifications and equipment down time with manufacturing or equipment engineering.
  • Works with project management and engineering to order and maintain consumable supplies.
  • Uses software to analyze data, identify trends to make decisions about processing product.
  • Makes adjustments when process parameters are exceeded and monitors process parameters when tools return from maintenance. REQUIREMENTS
    • Masters degree or PhD in Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical, Materials Science, Physics, or Industrial Engineering with a minimum of 5 years of industrial experience. A Bachelors degree with 10 years of experience will also be considered.
    • Understanding of statistical methods and design of experiments.

    • Software Data Analysis software (Python, Matlab, Spotfire, Minitab, JMP, etc.).
    • Experience using CMP tools with multi-zone pressure control to achieve minimal within-wafer and wafer-to-wafer nonuniformity values.
    • Experience working with CMP tools that have optical end point detection.
    • Must currently possess a Secret Security Clearance or have the ability to obtain one prior to start.
