Job Summary

Here at ON Semiconductor we take great pride in our internship program and the efforts we take to provide students with hands-on industry experience. We provide competitive pay, medical benefits, various networking event opportunities, and flexible hours based on school schedule.

Performance Objectives:

We are looking for an intern to help interpret semiconductor device structures and characteristics to assist in patent application claim formulation, competitive comparisons, and assisting with the creation of patent fillings. The intern would be expected to understand semiconductor process technology, device layout, and materials used in the semiconductor fabrication. The intern would take physical, microscopy, and electrical device characterization data from the characterization labs, and "reverse-engineer" the circuits and devices to extract the circuit layout and/or schematics. This information would be compared against libraries or competitive analysis to identify the key differences and similarities. In turn, these interpretations will be used to help craft patent applications.

In order to be considered for an internship, you must be a student currently enrolled in a masters program for electrical or computer engineering.

  • First year Master's level student preferred

  • Local candidates preferred

  • IC knowledge and circuits/layout knowledge

  • Semiconductor fabrication knowledge
