NVIDIA Israel is looking for a strong senior engineer with high capabilities in the electrical failure analysis field, which requires various capabilities such as silicon debug, IC testing and hands on top edge EFA technologies (emission, LVT, IREM, LADA etc), to be able to lead and execute challenging electrical failure analysis in all Nvidia networking ICs. Purpose of this position is root causing silicon unique and abnormal failures/behaviors, which will result with finding real silicon defects, chip design marginalities, identifying process issues and many more..

As the EFA engineer you will be hands on with top edge failure analysis Technlogies, both on ATE and system platforms; you will perform integration of all electrical and mechanical aspects of each case brought to EFA lab – such as chip design, physical design, IC test, DFT features, localization of ATPG/BISTs, silicon debug , EFA tools. You will need strong debug and localization skills will good familiarity with modern techniques in EFA will be great advantage.

If you answer to above, please join our exciting journey.

What you will be doing:

  • Work closely with internal design teams to define requirements (DFT) to support Si debug

  • Define the required EFA workflows for various cases (Yield, Qualification, Customer Returns)

  • Define, drive development, and enable all HW, SW and thermal infrastructure to allow usage of various analytical and fault isolation and analysis tools.

  • Drive root causing of yield issues, qualification failures, customer issues or any event that requires investigation and analytical techniques to debug and root cause failing Silicon.

What we needs to see:

  • BSc/MSc/PhD degree in Electrical/Computer Engineering or Physics

  • 5+ years of experience in hands-on debug in the EFA domain

  • Good understanding of VLSI circuit design, and/or device physics, and/or process engineering

  • Familiarity with ATE Test Programs, and ability to adopt Test Patterns per debug needs

  • Computer programming experience and at least basic Python and Unix skills – an advantage

  • Statistical/data analysis experience (Matlab, JMP, etc.) – an advantage

  • Ability to work independently, and lead cross-functional teams

  • Strong sense of ownership, commitment, and responsibility

  • Good interpersonal communication skills
