Qualification of new fabrication processes and bipolar products for key customers using in-house wafer foundry as wafer source including design of the bill of materials and test plan and management of all aspects of the bipolar projects from conception to delivery.
Multiple products qualified increasing company revenue by allowing product to be sold as well as increasing product portfolio and leveraging in house wafer fabs to allow for more stable device supply thus increasing customer confidence.

What have you gained from your placement?
My time at Diodes has allowed me to greatly improve my management and planning skills and allowed me to work and share ideas with a great team of supportive members. I’ve gotten to work though the full semiconductor production qualification life cycle and use the knowledge I’ve gained from my university course to tackle challenging problems along the way. I look forward to applying the skills I’ve learned from this placement in my final university year and in my future career.
