Signal Integrity - RF Integrity Validation Engineer

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino),California,United States

Hardware

Our RFI (RF Integrity) team develops novel methodologies to tackle coupling, spur, and coexistence issues in highly coordinated RF systems through simulation and lab debug. The engineering regime covers Silicon, package, module, PCB, and form-factor device. The working methods are constantly evolving and blurring boundaries of existing domains. As an RF Integrity Validation Engineer, you will address the isolation, shielding, coexistence, and space-saving challenges at chip, package, module, and system level through lab experiments. The team is small and the coverage is huge due to its multidiscipline nature. You will explore multiple aspects of RF technology and expand the boundary of innovation. If you like self-challenge and can thrive in an innovative and fast-pacing work environment, you might be the engineer we are looking for.
