Job Description

ESPONSIBILITIES (Essential Job Function):

  • Lead the analysis, design and specification of the overall radio system and sub - systems required for developing Microwave Digital Radios.
  • Define the overall radio system architecture including customer interface, microwave/mm-wave interfaces, mechanical enclosure, radio frequency plan and radio architecture.
  • Work closely with hardware engineers to develop the requirement specification documents for radio sub-systems such transceivers, RFICs, IF and Baseband assemblies. 
  • Work closely with software and firmware (FPGA developers) engineers to generate software and firmware requirement documents.
  • Work closely with ATE engineers to develop radio level test strategy and factory implementation.
  • Devise radio calibration strategy, design calibration algorithms in support of factory room temperature test and calibration.
