Job function SCALINX’s Design Team is looking for a dynamic and experienced DFT Team Leader who will contribute to define, implement and follow-up on the DFT activities and delivery. The candidate will ensure the management, animation and development of a Design For Test team.

Work description 

  • Be responsible for all Design For Test activities for all circuits in close collaboration with the R&D Development Director.
  • Contribute to the development of the technical expertise of the Design For Test team(s) in close collaboration with the technical and development director.
  • Be responsible for the methodology of the design flow (insertion of the DFT, Static Timing Analysis, generation of test vectors, and validation)
  • DRC checks by SPYGLASS in RTL. DFT design constraints creation
  • Responsible for analyzing DFT metrics and the proposed solution in order to achieve objectives in terms of yield, test-coverage goals, and test time on wafer/package and in operation.
  • Work in close collaboration with the FE design and Back-End Digital teams to guarantee DFT insertion with minimal impact on circuit PPAs
  • Responsible for static timing analysis for all test logic at the physical partition level and top level
  • Work with test engineers to provide and validate test patterns on ATE
  • Define the strategy for testing analog parts of the design
  • Coordination of the production launch of several circuits per year
  • Ensure the technical objectives and quality of the product as well as the development process. Ensure work on the product is properly documented
  • Lead, organize, and participate in Design For Test reviews
  • Report progress and problems to the project team and the development director

Qualification and Experience
