Silicon ATE Test Engineer

(Taiwan) HsinChu, Taiwan
Engineering – Silicon Engineering /
Full-time /
As a Sr. ATE test engineer, this role will be responsible for test, characterization and HVM shipment of our Silicon.


    • Develop production, qualification, and characterization test programs for digital, analog, mixed-signal devices on ATE (Automatic Test Equipment) using Advantest 93K, Teradyne Uflex or other major test platforms.
    • In charge of test pattern conversion and verification prior to silicon to ensure “First Time Right Vector” for smooth ATE bring-up.
    • In charge of test hardware bring-up (probe card and load board) to meet the test specifications.
    • Own First-Si test pattern bring-up, and collaborate with Product Engineering, DfT, and IC design to efficiently debug any failures and implement optimal solutions.
    • Define test requirements & test limits, ensuring the correct levels of test coverage, and devise strategies to optimize test time.
    • Drive ATE to System level correlation to implement relevant voltage guard-bands.
    • Work cross functionally on failure analysis and debug during NPI phase and feedback to test strategy to ensure high quality standards


    • Excellent skills in problem solving, written and verbal communication, excellent organization skills, and highly self-motivated.
    • Minimum of 10-12 years of ATE experience developing test programs for server, client/mobile, or HPC products.
    • Strong understanding of hardware design requirements (CPM/IBIS models, SI/PI simulation) for probe-card, load-board, burn-in boards.
    • Hands-on experience with ATE test equipment (Advantest SMT8 preferred) writing Scan / Mbist / PHY tests, developing product binning test methods, secure manufacturing flows.
    • Experience in leading a team of test engineers and managing OSATs highly desired.
    • Prior DfT experience is highly desired.

Education and Experience

    • Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in technical subject area.
