Group/Division

With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA's metrology and inspection products, is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers. The Broadband Plasma Division (BBP) provides market-leading patterned wafer optical inspection systems for leading-edge IC manufacturing. Logic, foundry, and memory customers depend on BBP products to detect yield-critical defects for process debug and excursion monitoring at advanced process nodes. BBP flagship products include the 29xx and 39xx series which leverage Broadband Plasma technology to capture a wide range of defects with ultimate sensitivity at the optical inspection speeds needed for inline defect monitoring.


This position belongs to the EE HW team in the Broadband Plasma Wafer Inspection (BBP) division. The person is responsible for FPGA and firmware design in the EE HW group. The individual needs strong FPGA design, analysis, and testing skills. He or she needs solid knowledge and experience with Verilog, Xilinx FPGA design tools, hardware-firmware interfaces, EE test equipment, and Python script development. Embedded Linux firmware development skills are a plus. He or she will be performed design work for the FastScan and Cosworth programs.


Responsibilities


  • Develop complex FPGA designs for high-performance mixed-signal systems.
  • Define requirement specifications and develop design projects from concept design to production release.
  • Create test plans and perform testing, technical, and root cause analysis to validate design performance at bench and system level.
  • Develop Python diagnostic scripts to support FPGA functional and regression testing and system integration.


Minimum Qualifications

Master's Level Degree + 3 years, or Bachelor's Level Degree + 5 years
