About Us – Research & Development Process Center (RDPC)

In order to maintain TSMC's leading position in technology and shorten R&D cycle time to expand our competitive advantage, RDPC (RD Process Center) works closely with R&D organizations to achieve the fastest, highest quality, and most cost-effective process development.

Our Goal :

1. Reduce cycle time:

The R&D process requires continuous design of experiments (DOE) and verification to ensure process reliability and mass production. However, it takes time to know the results of these experiments from chip tape-out to experiment results. Therefore, we must strive to shorten the research and development cycle time to obtain results and make improvements in the shortest possible time.

2. Stability:

The equipment on the R&D line needs to be maintained and improved by RDPC. We are at the forefront of technology, and many machines are the first of TSMC. Therefore, Process and Equipment Engineers in RDPC are like "tailors" who can create the most fitted design for each machine to ensure its stability and optimal performance.

3. Variation control:

Minimizing process variation is also a crucial task for RDPC. As the process advances, the process window becomes smaller, requiring stable and high-yield processes. Therefore, precise process control is crucial for stable and high-yield.

4. Technology transfer to HVM (High Volume Manufacturing):

Success or failure depends on the ability to mass-produce the research and development results. Therefore, seamless transfer and successful mass production are our ultimate goals to achieve the success and development of the company.

Job Responsibilities

1. Operate and maintain Nano Diffusion, Thin Film, Lithography or Etching equipment.

2. Troubleshoot and repair high-tech equipment.

3. Enhance the efficiency of the equipment to improve production yield.

4. Plan and execute analysis projects or defect detection.

5. Collaborate with cross-functional engineers or vendors to ensure smooth operations.

Job Qualifications

1. Bachelor's degree or above in Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Automation Engineering or related fields.

2. No experience required. However, experience in equipment maintenance or improvement is a plus.

3. Basic mechanical knowledge required. Knowledge of semiconductor processes is a plus.

4. Strong problem-solving skills, effective communication, teamwork, active learning attitude and good command of English.
