Senior or Principal MTS RF Engineer
Campbell, CA or Portland, OR
- Use electromagnetic (EM) theory and EM propagation analysis, and knowledge of microwave tool-based modeling and analysis to perform electromagnetic modeling, simulation, and measurement of structures that aim to guide electromagnetic radiation from RF communication systems (e.g. chips) in a predictable manner; and to support new technology and product development, including on-going research and development of existing RF communication products and related systems.
- Use RF measurement tools such as VNA, Anechoic chamber, and spectrum analyzer to design and construct measurement tools and systems for analysis of designed structures within communication systems.
- Apply understanding of antenna theory and design, and microelectronic fabrication and materials to improve the performance and the manufacturability of the communication systems.
- Design, construct, measure, analyze, and report on mockups and actual target systems.
- Provide support to customers in the design process through simulation, measurement, and analysis activities.
Master’s degree in EE/CS or equivalent, Ph.D. preferred.
- 5+ years of RF-based product validation and qualification experience for consumer/enterprise applications. Experience with mmWave-based products preferred.
- Experience in designing, modeling and characterizing mmWave antennas, structures, and packages for RF communication is required.
- Experience with RF-based product development for WirelessHD, WiGig or 802.11ad is preferred.
- Expertise in using one or more of the following tools-HFSS, ADS momentum, SONNET, and CST for EM modeling and analysis.
- Team player with interest in filling up gaps in product development, as needed.
- Strong background on the following topics:
- Theory of RF propagation, RF devices and RF design principles
- Electromagnetic (EM) theory and EM propagation analysis
- Microelectronic fabrication and materials
- RF measurement techniques (VNA, Anechoic chamber, and spectrum analyzer)
- Antenna theory and design
