PRIMARY FUNCTION:

Design, analyze, verify, and document RF Front End Modules, including filters, switches, and LNAs. Develop custom integrated circuits, PWBs, & thin film assemblies.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS/RESPONSIBILITIES:
 Design high performance RF products; responsible for projects from start to finish
o Design for low loss, high linearity, EMI/EMC, reliability, and thermal performance by utilizing advanced models or computer simulations
o Design to accomplish cost, size, weight, power and manufacturability objectives
o Interface with third-party ASIC design, fabrication & packaging partners
o Conduct preliminary evaluation of prototype assemblies
 Champion new product thrusts and technologies
o Spearhead internal research and development efforts. This includes the research and development of topologies, physical implementation, concept models as well as identification of all electrical operating parameters and production test requirements. The focus is on wideband, dynamically tunable designs in microwave bands.
o Provide technical leadership
o High self-motivation and organization; willingness to challenge current-state methodologies and thinking
 Support sales and marketing closely in new product definition and development
o Respond to technical support questions pre-sale and post-sale
o Support bid and proposal efforts
