You will perform link analysis and optimization, including effects of propagation medium and possible interference sources. You will support the development and allocation of RF system and subsystem functional and performance requirements. You will identify and track RF technical performance measurements (TPMs). You will aid junior engineers in the design of hardware solutions using industry standard design and simulation tools and automated testing frameworks utilizing the latest test equipment. Having experience with PCB design tools (Altium, Mentor Expedition), RF, circuit, and system simulation tools (Advanced Design Suite, Microwave Office, Spice, MATLAB) is a plus.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Conduct design analysis on components and/or assemblies to assist in the development process by ensuring designs are cost efficient, able to be manufactured, and reliable
Analyze hardware specifications and system/subsystem requirements to conceive and document practical designs for hardware components to include servers, network devices, transmission media, storage devices, user interface devices, and special processors
Adjust or recommend enhancements in systems and new hardware as well as modify existing hardware to add features and functionality
Be knowledgeable of standard test equipment such as oscilloscopes, signal generators, and spectrum analyzers
Work with Hardware Engineering Team to complete hardware development, simulation and verification for digital signal processing and general processing projects
Support Integrated Product Teams, engineering project managers, and program office staff to meet all customer objectives and program milestones
Employ circuit design, development, and testing best practices
Address complex technical issues/problems
Provide specific input to the hardware components of system design to include end-user devices, servers, networking devices, data storage devices, and specialized processors
Evaluate emerging technologies to determine advantages and disadvantages of potential solutions.
You’ll Bring These Qualifications
