Things were easy for integrators when the pattern they had on the mask ended up being the pattern they wanted on the chip. Multi-patterning schemes such as Self-Aligned Double Patterning (SADP) and Self-Aligned Quadruple Patterning (SAQP) have changed that dramatically. Now, what you have on the mask determines only a part of what you will get at the end. read more…

In your role as a member of the Analytics team, you will contribute to our analytics engine and its interfaces with SEMulator3D’s architecture, infrastructure and user interface. Your work will focus on development of new software capabilities and features using Matlab and Python.
Great engineering is Coventor’s heart and soul. Our software is envisioned and created by world-class engineers in many disciplines: software engineering, numerical physics, statistics, electrical engineering, quality assurance and development operations. Since our inception as an MIT spin-off in Technology Square, we’ve focused on agility by enabling individuals to take initiative and find innovative solutions to hard problems. At Coventor, we hire engineers with broad skills who are ready to contribute in multiple ways to create our next great software product.
- Research and implement new analytics engine capabilities, primarily in Matlab
- Prototype data visualizations in Matlab and Python and participate in deployment via Python, QCustomPlot, or Matlab
- Work with UI and QA teams to enable and validate product features
- Participate in general software engineering tasks, including verification, testing, bug fixing and maintenance of existing code for the Analytics product
- BS in scientific or engineering field with 3+ years of experience
- Strong Matlab knowledge and experience (3+ years coding)
- Some Python experience
- Knowledge of or interest in statistics and multivariate data analysis demonstrated by multiple standard university or Coursera classes
- Ability to learn new algorithms/technologies and solve problems
Desirable Qualifications (any of the following):
- Ph.D. in applied statistics/mathematics, scientific, or engineering field with significant experience in data modeling and applied statistics
- Professional experience solving real-world problems (beyond Coursera or standard university classes) with many of the following: DOE, multivariate statistics, optimization (constrained, gradient/simplex methods), linear regression, PCA, pattern recognition, multiple comparison testing, ANOVA, exploratory data analysis and visualization, machine learning, etc./li>
- 3+ years of experience in a professional software development position in scientific simulation or visualization
- Strong Python experience (or possibly strong R, and willingness to learn Python)
- Publications, patents, in-house/research software (i.e., other people routinely use your software/models inside a company, even if you have not done full professional software development).
This regular, full-time position is located in Waltham, MA. Coventor offers comprehensive benefits and is an EEO/AA Employer. You must be a current legal resident of the U.S. or have a valid U.S. visa to apply for this position. Please e-mail your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Silicon Photonics Test Die
With the increasing need for faster data transfer rates, the transition from electrical to optical signaling in data processing is inevitable. Copper cabling cannot keep up with the upcoming data center bandwidth requirements, for applications such as multimedia streaming and high performance computing. One technology that could enable true optical communication is silicon photonics. read more…

Yield and cost have always been critical factors for both manufacturers and designers of semiconductor products. Meeting yield and product cost targets is a continuous challenge, due to new device structures and increasingly complex process innovations introduced to achieve improved product performance at each new technology node. Design for manufacturability (DFM) and design process technology co-optimization (DTCO) are widely used techniques that can ensure the successful delivery of both new processes and products in semiconductor manufacturing. In this article, we will discuss how 3D (3 dimensional) DTCO can be used to improve product yield and accelerate product delivery dates in semiconductor manufacturing. read more…
