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 Algorithm Development Engineer position belongs to home team, part of HQ engineering organization for Broad-band Plasma wafer inspection in the Global Product Group (GPG) of KLA Corporation focusing on solving / addressing specific challenges.
This position offers a unique opportunity to those who are seeking technical challenges in the following domains : defect detection and binning, real-time image processing, machine learning and computer vision algorithms.
Job responsibilities of this position include :
1. Provide algorithm technical support for escalations in various of product life cycle phases onsite.
2. Interacting with TSMC business unit, GSS (Global Service Support) and customers to address issues and investigate solutions.
3. Analyzing the signal and noise characteristics of current and emerging IC yield limiting defects, formulating algorithmic solutions, and validating them via simulation and prototyping.
4. Investigating feasibility of advance algorithm for next generation product through collaboration with technology and system architect group.
5. Provide prototype algorithm solution for special customer engagement project at customer site.
