As a Process Development Engineer, Mr. Chong is responsible for multiple aspects of joint development activities with CNSE's ever growing corporate partnerships. Mr. Chong works to ensure that the partners challenging integration schemes are accomplished using novel dielectric and metal films for both BEOL / FEOL processing solutions.

Mr. Chong is the primary contact for PECVD dielectric film depositions, advanced low K SiCOH , STI gap fill, Advance Patterning Film, PVD liners / Cu seed, Silicide, and metal gate electrode process. He supports development activities for conventional planer CMOS, non-planer FinFET devices. He also supports advanced memory applications, with top / bottom electrode materials and unique metal oxide dielectric films for reliability improvement.
