IDEX America Inc. and its parent company IDEX ASA, a leading developer of fingerprint sensor devices, are building an
ASIC Development site in Rochester, NY and are seeking experienced Sr. Test Engineers to help develop and test state-
of-the-art mixed-signal fingerprint sensing devices. As Sr. Test Engineer, you will work closely with colleagues in the ASIC
Development organization as well as with other teams within the IDEX R&D, System Engineering and Sensor Development
teams to deliver high-volume, mixed-signal products based on cutting-edge sensor technologies into Mobile, Smart Card
and IoT markets. This position will be a pivotal role for IDEX to guide corporate direction on characterization and production
test strategies, work with suppliers to select test platforms and equipment, and work closely with the ASIC Design Team to
develop/implement ASIC characterization and production test plans. You will also collaborate with other product teams to
root cause issues that result from debug, characterization and margin analysis and the position will also allow for the
opportunity to provide test enhancement feedback for future designs.

PCB circuitry to augment ATE capabilities
Develop test solution on automated test equipment (ATE) to validate, characterize, and
production-test fingerprint sensing devices
Work with design engineers to implement required test modes in the product
Work with design engineers to integrate design for test (DFT) features into new designs.
Mentor less experienced engineers, review their work to ensure quality is being met, and
make suggestions for improvements.
Interface with internal and external vendors to develop test schematics, optimize test board
layout, component selection and manufacture of all necessary test hardware
Validate test systems to ensure test coverage, correlation to bench measurements, and
Coordinate with remote manufacturing sites to release new test systems to production
Provide production sustaining support to reduce test time, improve measurement stability
and help debug yield issues
Ensure timely and successful delivery of projects
Must possess an in-depth knowledge of mixed-signal device performance parameters and
Required test methods.
