Development of assembly methods, materials, and processes for current and next generation microwave and mmWave products, with a heavy emphasis on cutting edge automation and materials. Will work hand-in-hand with process engineers, quality engineers, reliability engineers, and manufacturing engineers to produce microwave and mmWave assemblies. Responsibilities include developing and implementing materials and processes, process improvements, and equipment selection using established statistical process control techniques, experimental designs, material analysis, and mechanical design analysis. Evaluation of materials, equipment and processes (including qualification, acceptance testing, and specification development) will be required including interfacing with key internal and external suppliers to resolve technical issues. Assembly processes supported involve SMT Assembly & Rework, Component Pick-n-Place, Dispense, and Cure, Vacuum Reflow, Conduction and Convection Reflow, Solvent Cleaning, X-ray Analysis, Wire Bonding, as well as Hermetic Package Seam Welding, Laser and Ink Marking.
• Minimum of 4 years’ experience in microelectronic assembly, processes, materials and development.
• Personal flexibility to support (on-call and on-site) a 2 shift, 7 day production facility.
• Willingness to learn assembly processes and to develop a “hands-on” understanding of the equipment.
• Statistical Process Control (SPC) and statistical data analysis.
• Design of Experiment (DOE) techniques.
• Proficiency in documentation and analysis of results using Excel, Access, Word, AutoCAD.
• Good communication and people skills.
• Ability to work under broad direction and guidelines.
• Ability to work in a clean room environment.
• Eligible to obtain a Secret security clearance, US Citizenship is required
• Knowledge of materials, DOE, statistical data handling and analysis, and problem solving methodologies.
• Knowledge of non-destructive test – SEM, FTIR, XRF.
• Destructive test – shear, tensile strength testing a plus
• Knowledge of material properties relationships, Mil-Std-833 and JEDEC test methods.
• B.S. or Higher Degree in Engineering (ChemE, ME, EE, or Materials Science preferred)
