Manager Cu BEOL Intergration
Public Company; Semiconductors
September 2003 - February 2006

Architect and manager of Cu interconnect technology development line: Selected all the Cu line tools; put the Cu/FSG process integration scheme together; took less than one year from tool acceptance to the Cu BEOL technology qualification and transfer to manufacturing; put the thick Cu inductor/BCB integration scheme together for RF devices; qualify the latter and transfer the process to manufacturing in less than 6 months. Developed MIM capacitors process for RF application.

Senior Integration Engineer
Electrical/Electronic Manufacturing
January 2002 - October 2002

Responsible for the integration of FTEOS, Cu barrier, Cu seed, electroplated Cu, Cu CMP, cleans to the backend of 0.13 um devices. Developed an integration scheme for a new Cu ECP chemistry that increased the device yield by more than 30%. Put in place etch, Cu barrier/seed, and Cu ECP process integration scheme that improved the Cu interconnect EM performance beyond that of the qualification requirement. Developed an integration scheme that eliminated Cu galvanic and photo corrosion and improved Cu interconnect reliability and performance.

Member of Technical Staff
Electrical/Electronic Manufacturing
November 1999 - January 2002

Responsible for the integration of low-k, Cu barrier, Cu seed, electroplated Cu, and packaging to the backend of 0.12/0.13 um devices. Conducted a fast track research using the manufacturing line that lead to the selection of manufacturing friendly low-k material. Studied the interaction of low-k material with Cu CMP and put in place an integration scheme that has improved the reliability and yield of our low-k based devices. Designed and put in place a pad structure scheme for low-k based devices that can withstand wire-bonding stresses. Developed a comprehensive process integration scheme for low-k device with improved EM performance.
