About this vacancy

For NXP's TPE team in Nijmegen we are looking for a Test Engineer. The team serves PL Mobile Audio and Personal Health. In Nijmegen the focus lays on the development projects, transferring the test programs to Taiwan (APK) and/or subcontractors in the Far East.

Job description

Main purpose:
Test Engineers are responsible to translate device specifications into a test strategy focussed on achieving absolute minimum test cost while preserving quality at release. In the definition phase you discuss DFT requirements with designers and define optimal test hardware to ensure maximum coverage, concurrence and multisite capabilities. In the implementation phase you work to a fast first implementation, to meet ESD, HTOL requirements and at the end release a test cost optimised program. Final release is done in Taiwan, requiring intensive cooperation before release.

Key areas of accountability:

  • Test strategy (analysing test items/coverage, test times, multi-site)
  • Implement test on Advantest Smartscale (PS1600 platforms)
  • Define test hardware
  • Document test program
  • Release activities (repeatability & reproducibility, spike check)
  • Implement zero defect techniques
  • Develop supporting test programs (support Failure analysis, Schmoo)
  • Transfer knowledge and hardware to Taiwan
