Job Description

Req. ID: 112171 

As a Non-Volatile Memory QRA (NVMQRA) Solid State Drive (SSD) Quality and Reliability Test Development Engineer at Micron Technology, Inc., you will be responsible for developing, debugging, and maintaining test programs used to validate Micron's SSD products. These test programs, and any associated tools, will be utilized from early in the product development cycle through the qualification till end of life. You will analyze and resolve failures that are generated by these programs. In this role you will work with various engineering groups to evaluate, implement, and verify corrective actions, as well as with production to provide support. You will be required to modify, write, and maintain code that runs on automated equipment to verify the reliability of the device-under-test (DUT) to a given set of conditions. Additional software responsibilities may include development and overall management of the SSD qualification database. You may also participate in the design and checkout of the hardware that is used to interface between the tester and the DUT.

In this role you will work with various Engineering and Quality Reliability Assurance Groups to provide technical support, expertise, consultation and training. You should expect to support customers both internal and external to Micron on an on-going basis.

Responsibilities and Tasks
Develop, support, and maintain quality / reliability test solutions:

  • Optimize test flows for maximum alignment with design and test equipment capabilities
  • Ensure availability of the necessary test programs and the database interface to support engineering and qualification
  • Develop tools to enable efficient usage of a large-scale test bed
  • Create and maintain documentation (flowcharts, users guide, developers guide)
  • Ensure validation of test, tester, and data system solutions

Perform device reliability analysis and characterization:

  • Identify product Technical Spec Matrix (TSM) and datasheet parameters to characterize
  • Validate a device’s margin to spec
  • Characterize the test environment and identify best known solution  

Analyze test failures to determine the root cause of the issues:

  • Work with the cross-functional engineering teams to identify root-cause and resolution of device failures by utilizing tools available; e.g. tester and device logs, oscilloscope, logic and BUS protocol analyzers.
  • Provide failure documentation to engineering teams
  • Modify test flows for failure isolation, replication, and to prove fix effectiveness

Provide SSD QRA test environment support:

  • Troubleshoot problems and identify opportunities to improve process efficiency (automation, reporting, training)
  • Provide qualification tools, references, and software
  • Sustain activities to keep qualification and testing in alignment with requirements (scope, schedule, costs, resources)

Provide quality / reliability software support:

  • Generate customized engineering test flows for experiments and evaluations
  • Develop software tools for analyzing reliability test data and failure modes

Education:
Required: Masters’ Degree in Electrical / Electronics Engineering
Desired: PhD in Electrical / Electronics Engineering
 
Experience:
2-3 years of experience in any of the following:

  • Applied knowledge of software development in multiple languages (C, C++, Java, Python, etc.), with SQL and database management experience a plus
  • Applied knowledge of automated test equipment (ATE), oscilloscopes, logic and/or interface protocol analyzers
  • Knowledge of Solid State Drive Product/Device

Qualifications

  • Basic knowledge and understanding of wafer fabrication process
  • Basic knowledge and understanding of device physics
  • Basic knowledge and understanding of NAND device operation
  • Basic knowledge and understanding of managed NAND operation
  • Knowledge of various managed NAND protocol standards such as SATA, SAS, PCIe, or NVMe .
  • Strong knowledge and understanding of semiconductor reliability statistics
  • Good verbal and written communication skills
  • Good time management and multi-tasking skills
