Job Responsibilities

  • To perform layout design of power electronics module, such as half/full bridge power module, to meet existing or future power product requirements.
  • To perform numerical simulation of the power electronics module to evaluate its transient response, determine its parasitic parameters and the corresponding conduction & switching loss.
  • To perform benchmarking of the power electronics module by static and transient electrical measurement.
  • To understand and propose to improve the device-level electrical performance and reliability of power electronics ICs, especially for the 3rd generation semiconductor devices (SiC & GaN).
  • To provide cross-functional co-ordination among thermo-mechanical, materials and process, test and reliability groups for product implementation.
  • To conduct literature and marketing review on products, patents and research papers to collect background information and facilitate proposal drafting.

Requirements

  • PhD holder in power electronics engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, electronic engineering or other related disciplines, including non-local applicant.
  • Skillful in electrical layout design for high power electronics package/module/system such as MOSFET, GaN FET, inverter, charger, wireless power transfer module, etc.
  • Experience in programming or using numerical design related software (e.g. ANSYS Q3D Extractor, HFSS, ADS, Matlab, etc.) for parasitic extraction and loss calculation of power electronics modules.
  • Hands-on experience in building up and characterizing the performance of power electronics module by using various measuring tools, such as double pulse testing system, dynamic impedance analyzer, etc.
  • Fluent in English, good written and oral communications skills.
  • Strong team spirit and interpersonal skills.
  • Independent, responsible, aggressive and outgoing character.
