An essential job function of the MEMS product/test engineer is
the development and implementation of software and hardware for the
testing of packaged MEMS pressure sensor devices at the production
and test facility of SMI in Milpitas. These MEMS pressure sensor
devices are mainly sensor systems consisting of an SMI pressure
sensor die and a signal-conditioning ASIC in an SMI custom package.
He/she will be responsible for supporting the production test of
packaged pressure sensor devices by improving and maintaining the
test programs and tester hardware of the current production
processes. The MEMS product/ test engineer will also be involved in
software and hardware improvements of existing testers as well as
the development of testers and software for the testing of new
pressure sensor products.
Essential Functions Support development of new test systems
(software and hardware) for MEMS pressure sensors.
Support sensor system product releases from first bench top
tests to production tests.
Support and monitor test systems at SMI or assembly and test
subcontractors abroad (some travel required).
Serve as product engineer for newly released pressure sensor
Develop and evaluate sensor systems calibration schemes to
optimize for performance and cost.
Lead test time reduction and cost reduction efforts.
BS degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or
5 to 10 years of related working experience
Experience with production test systems and process control
Experience with programming, ideally LabView
Experience with semiconductor, sensor and/or MEMS testing
Data analysis skills (theoretical skills, as well as software
skills) and statistics
Ability to draft, publish and present test results and
conclusions in customer-ready reports
MS degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or
Basic knowledge of sensor calibration processes and
Experience with MEMS based sensors
Hands-on experience with bench top setups as well as “rack and
stack” test systems
Self-motivated with the ability to work effectively in a team
Silicon Microstructures is an established and growing MEMS
Pressure Sensor company with its own fab in Silicon Valley. The
