DFT Engineer

South Bay, CA

Posted: 09/17/2018 Employment Type: Direct Hire Industry: Semiconductor Job Number: JOS000008015

Job Description
The successful candidate will be responsible for leading DFT programs all the way from chip level DFT specification, through to implementation and verification culminating in successfully releasing products to production.
You'll also be supporting the Test Methodology team in the development of complex DFT strategies to solve the test issues that arise from testing and leading edge high complexity ASICs.

  • Understanding the company & customer DFT feature requirements & DPPM goals & defining appropriate DFT specifications for the ASIC
  • Implementing DFT, including Scan, MBIST, TAP, LBIST, IO, SerDes and other I/P DFT integration
  • Working closely with STA and DI Engineers design closure for test
  • Generating, Verifying & Debugging Test vectors before tape release.
  • Validating & Debugging Test vectors on ATE during the silicon bring up phase
  • Assisting with silicon failure analysis, diagnostics & yield improvement efforts
  • Interfacing with the customer, physical design and test engineering/manufacturing teams located globally
  • Working closely with I/P DFT engineers & other stakeholders
  • Debugging customer returned parts on the ATE
  • Innovating newer DFT solutions to solve testability problems in 7nm & beyond
  • Automating DFT & Test Vector Generation flows


  • Strong DFT background (such as IO and Analog DFT, ATPG and/or Scan, BIST, and others)
  • Scan Insertion and scan compression background (DFT Compiler, Mentor TestKompress, etc.)
  • Logic BIST design and debug experience
  • Well-versed in ATPG vector generation, simulation, debug. (TetraMax, Fastscan)
  • Experience in Verilog coding, testbench generation & simulation
  • Memory BIST insertion and verification experience (SRAM, CAM, eDRAM)
  • The ability to work in a multi-disciplined, cross-department environment
    Solid knowledge in analog and digital circuit design, and device physics fundamentals
    Good understanding of Si processing, logical and physical synthesis, and transistor reliability principles
  • Excellent problem solving, debug , root cause analysis and communication skills
  • Experience working on ATE is a plus


  • Bachelors/Masters Degree in Electrical/Electronic/Computer Engineering
