Job Description

Packaging Staff Engineer


  • Develop package level mechanical finite element models to characterize internal stress/strain in packages due to various package assembly related processes to ensure high yield.
  • Develop mechanical models to characterize the stress/strain and useful lifetime of the packages due to reliability test conditions and 2nd level testing conditions.
  • Develop thermal models to characterize the package level thermal resistance parameters such as Theta j-a, Theta j-c, Theta j-b, Psi j-t etc.
  • Document all simulation models, codes and scripts and present the results to broader team.
  • Work with material suppliers and vendors and with material testing labs to characterize relevant material properties as needed for modeling.



  • Excellent knowledge in fundamentals of solid mechanics, heat transfer and materials science.
  • Experience using FEM tools such as ANSYS (APDL & Workbench), ABAQUS, FLOTHER, ICEPAK or other similar tools.
  • Experience with IC packaging modeling & simulation, and packaging failure analysis.
  • Experience in simulating IC packaging assembly steps such as die attach, wire-bonding, over-molding, materials curing and reliability testing conditions such as drop/shock, thermal cycling, cyclic bend etc.
  • Experience in simulation and characterization of IC packaging thermal resistance parameters as defined in JEDEC standards.
  • Good understanding of various electronic packaging technologies (SiP, MCM, WLCSP, Dual-sided packages etc.), structures and processes.
  • Any experience with materials testing/characterization and thermal testing is a plus.
  • Must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and presentation skills.
  • Well versed in use of Microsoft Office tools.
  • Mechanical Engineering degree required – B.S. with 8+ years experience, M.S. with 6+ years experience or Ph.D. with 3+ years experience is preferred.
