Sr. Process Engineer Resume


Sr. Process Engineer, Confidential, 2003-2009
Sr. Module and Integration/Yield Engineer, Confidential, 2009-current
Working as an etch engineer in the Portland Technology Development group. PTD is responsible for bringing Intel’s industry-leading microprocessor manufacturing process from early path-finding through high volume. Developed etch processes for 65nm CMOS, 45nm and 32nm high-k metal gate, 22nm finFET and 14nm nodes. Processors built on these processes include Intel Core, Core 2, Core i7 and IvyBridge.

  • Owned etch modules on a development manufacturing line, modifying processes as necessary to optimize the yield and performance. On-call coverage 24/7. Zero safety incidents, while exceeding operational and defect goals.
  • Designed, executed and analyzed module experiments to meet process specifications.
  • Worked collaboratively with equipment manufacturers and factory automation engineers to identify shortcomings. Proposed and evaluated modifications to mitigate issues.
  • Operated in-situ ramps to manufacturing volumes to demonstrate the technology met requirements.
  • Transferred technology to high volume manufacturing: Trained 20 new factory engineers and their technicians, providing daily supervision during their six-month training periods in Oregon.
  • Audited new factory installations and supervised the first full loop lot at new production sites. Transfer sites included Israel, Ireland, Oregon, New Mexico and Arizona.
  • Exceptional process developement allowed etch equipment to be used four years longer than for other etch layers, resulting in over $40 million in savings.
  • Quarterly Divisional Award, 2008. For rapidly developing and integrating a new dry etch poly opening process for Intel’s gate-last high-k 32nm process. Gate height control was improved
    ten-fold versus a polish process, Transistor gate height wafer-to-wafer variation was less than 4 Angstroms.
  • Excursion Protection committee: Selected and implemented a new system for all Intel factories. Real- time statistical analysis of tool parameters enabled control limits to abort and prevent excursions.
  • Tool installations- worked with equipment manufacturers to create installation design packages.
  • Worked with trades to install all electrical/plumbing/structural subsystems and met tight ramp schedules for tool installations and for re-qualifications on new etch processes.
