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.
