  • Deep understanding of system specifications and the ability to work with system architects to translate system requirements into circuit requirements at an IC level.
  • Familiarity with various RF transceiver architectures and their trade-offs.
  • Extensive experience in simulation and design of lumped and distributed passive structures, such CPW lines, coupled lines, inductors, and capacitors.
  • Proven experience in analysis, design, and implementation of mmWave low-noise, broadband, and/or high-power amplifiers, as well as mixers and oscillators.
  • Understanding of mmWave device modeling; insights into packaging effects, integrated antenna arrays, supply isolations, high-frequency ESD structures, and circuit layout for optimum performance.

Description

As a mmWave Lead/Manager, responsibilities include: Lead design of transceiver blocks. Optimize circuit topologies and radio architecture to drive key radio performance indicators and power/area to meet product requirements. Work with multi-functional teams including platform architecture, wireless design, SW to define radio features enabling wireless innovation. Work with the technology team on process selection for the target device. Partnering with SoC integration teams to integrate radio transceiver and mixed-signal IPs into wireless SoC. Drive and enhance RFIC design methodology (system-level mixed-signal verification, RF chip/package/board de-sense) to achieve first-pass silicon success. Work with product/test engineering teams to implement low-cost RF ATE.
