LTA - Taiwan Engineer D&E for overlay application product implementation (Long Term Assignment)

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands

Introduction to the job

Please note, this is a Long Term Assignment (LTA) in Taiwan. We are Applications - a new business line within ASML, one of the world market leaders in scanning lithography technology. We create application products that run in the most modern semiconductor fabs in the world, and we are always pushing the boundary of what is possible.

The Applications Development & Engineering department develops, integrates, and qualifies functional modules and application packages in the area of wafer metrology (critical dimension and overlay) and wafer fab applications (performance control applications). Additionally we provide technical consulting to our customers, by designing and helping to implement integral solutions for on-product performance based on the products developed by ASML.

Role and responsibilities

As member of a strong multidisciplinary team you enjoy developing application products used in daily customer practice. These products deal with performance monitoring and control of on-product overlay performance under high-volume manufacturing conditions. The job includes collecting customer functional requirements, detailing the design of the product, explaining technical and mathematical content to software engineering teams, and functional verification of the product.

You will work in close collaboration with the customer, our development partners, and internal stakeholders.

You deal with various challenging topics, covering a wide variety of solutions such as scanner setup and usage, ASML application products, choices in wafer alignment and process control strategies, alignment- and overlay-mark choice and design, mask and wafer routing, and process optimization.

An essential part of the role is a strong interest in software development and proven skills in working in small teams (AGILE SCRUM way-of-working).

Flexibility to adopt functional knowledge on a variety of subjects such as imaging, wafer alignment, and wafer fab processes such as etching, polishing is needed.

You are expected to represent ASML as an expert in the field and to get recognition of this by the customers. Since you will be working intimately with customers and sensitive customer data, a high level of integrity is required for securing confidentiality, while at the same time being able to give input to product managers and system engineers for ASML product improvements.

Thejob consists of following activities:

  • Engineering of“given” solutions.
  • Translationinto SW (Matlab, C++, Java).
  • Perform dataanalysis with models and algorithms on customer data.
  • Createfunctional design proposals for improving the on-product performance.
  • Helpimplementing and executing the proposal at the customer.
  • Supportimplementation of solutions for on-product overlay monitoring, controland improvements into application products.
  • Maximize theapplication of ASML products to the benefit of the customer
  • Participateactively in identifying future product features
  • Traveling afew times per year to customers worldwide can be part of the job.

Education and experience

Masterdegree in Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical), witha solid background in some of the following fields: statistics, dataanalysis, control theory, (semi-conductor) process technology, semi-conductordevice physics, and/or design for experiment.

+3year of experience in an development area or process control organization isa pre. Experience within the semiconductor industry is important, knowledgeof the LithoInSight product as well.
