Job Description

Millimeter-wave/RFdesign validation engineer will be responsible for the IC characterization and the design of enabling features for our mm-wave front-end products. The mm-wave/RF validation engineer will work closely with the IC designers and perform hands-on experiments to verify mm-wave IC performance. In this multi-disciplinary role, the design validation engineer will also develop user interfaces and control software for evaluation kits and will ensure a smooth customer experience for our state-of-the-art products.

 

 Responsibilities

  • Characterize millimeter-wave ICs in detail to validate all the features and performance specifications.

  • Develop characterization schemes for mm-wave products and perform mm-wave performance measurements.

  • Work on measurement automation and strategy.

  • Determine the evaluation kit parts for mm-wave products and organize the EVK development phases.

  • Develop user interfaces and control/test software for EVK’s.

     

    Requirements

  • 2+ years of experience in RF test and measurements and/or RF product development.

  • Extensive experience with S-parameter, noise figure, linearity & modulation measurements both at the wafer and package level.

  • Fluency with equipment such as PNA-X (or similar), ecal modules, power sensors, etc.

  • Solid understanding of communication systems and RFcircuits performance parameters such as noise figure, P1dB, IIP3, gain, matching, etc.

  • Experience in embedded systems programming and GUI design. Experience in Python is a big plus.

  • Familiarity with beamforming circuits is preferred.

  • Good communication skills and effective team work.
