Job Description

The successful candidate will possess a full understanding of electromagnetics and RF circuits, and be a driven, committed team player. Our design team is responsible for designing and simulating all passive aspects of front-end modules including output matching networks, integrated passive devices, thermal simulation, filter design and coupling analysis all under the ever-present constraint of minimizing package size. 

It is critical the applicant has valuable experience in taking multiple programs from conception to production efficiently and effectively. Please note this is not a die design position. Our team has direct interaction with the die design teams to ensure product success.


Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
•    Adapting best laminate design and full module co-simulation practices
•    Designing RF matching networks in a compact environment
•    Designing high-isolation laminate layouts to meet high density component module and able to meet
stringent requirements such as de-sense, harmonics, radiation, etc.
•    Participating and conducting design reviews
•    Performing lab testing and tuning and using various RF test equipment


The circuit blocks involved in a typical product development may include:
•    Power Amplifiers
•    Integrated Passive Devices
•    SAW/BAW Duplexers & High-Q RF Filters
•    Switches
•    Low Noise Amplifiers
•    Matching circuits
•    High-directivity couplers
•    Third party baseband die


Software Tools Used are:
•    Ansoft HFSS
•    Agilent ADS and Momentum
•    Cadence Allegro and Virtuoso Layout
•    Excel
•    Microsoft Office/Outlook


Hardware Tools Used are:
•    Network Analyzers
•    Spectrum Analyzers
•    Signal Generators
•    Digital Receivers
•    Load-Pull/Tuners
•    RF Probe Stations
•    Thermal Stations
