The Product Analysis Team within IBM Systems is a visible and dynamic group which engages in failure analysis of Power and Z-system modules of established and new technology nodes. The scope of this work emcompassess high-priority customer returns, reliability fails out of stress testing, and product submissions to detect design / product-specific systematic fail modes not observable in the technology baseline monitors used in a fab. The results of this work drives changes in the process, the design, or of masks used in Front (FEOL), Middle (MOL) , and Backend (BEOL) of Line, and are usually time-critical. The team is also supporting Research&Development activities on emerging technology hardware coming out of the Albany Nanotechnology Center (ANT).The position of Physical Failure Analysis Lab Co-op within IBM Systems Group involves working closely with engineers and technicians on a variety of technical problems. The person to fill this job will be responsible for working with the team in collecting and organizing data for evaluation by engineers.
