RF EM Integration Engineer
Posted on: January 16, 2022
SummaryPosted: Oct 15, 2021Role Number: 200301485The cellular
RFIC team architects, designs, and validates radio transceivers
integrated into complex cellular SoCs. We invite you to join us, if
you are a self-motivating, passionate electrical engineer with RF
design and modeling experience. You will own the RF Integrity of
complex cellular transceivers. This includes identifying coupling
concerns, and coordinating with the modeling and RF IC design
teams. You will become part of a hands-on development team that
fosters engineering excellence, creativity and innovation.
Collaboration across teams is a key component of success at Apple -
we hope you will thrive in this type of environment.Key
- 3+ years of working experience in RFIC or RF circuit beyond
graduate school studies.
- Familiar with RFIC design, layout and simulation in Cadence
- Working knowledge of mobile product and/or RFIC crosstalk and
desense problems. The ability to simplify complex RFIC layouts to
identify problems and solutions at early stages of design.
- Strong fundamentals in 3D/2D EM simulation tools and
transmission line theory.
- Experience with RF lab equipment, such as VNA, real-time scope,
spectrum analyzer, radio communication tester, and RF diagnostic
- Strong academic training and knowledge on fundamentals of SI
Signal integrity and PI power integrity issues is a plus.
- Deep understanding on wireless transceiver designs,
architecture and effect of coupling mechanisms on key RF
performance indicators, and integration is preferred.
- Understand how to model the power grid and power network and
help predicting the transient and noise effects on the power grid
to key RF performance indicators.
- Familiar with RF impairment from block to transceiver level,
including amplifier, filter and PLL. as well as knowledge on
Communication Theory. Basic understanding for QAM, OFDM, MIMO, etc
is a plus.Description- You will collaborate with the RFIC design,
layout, RF architecture and RF integrity modeling teams. - You will
identify victim and aggressor pairs, set coupling specs and
understand the impact on overall system performance. - You will
prioritize the tasks and create plans to model and simulate top
items. - You will debug issues and guide layout to improve on chip
and on module coupling. - You will take part in the lab testing of
coupling conditions by proposing lab experiments, writing test
plans, taking measurements, and analyzing lab data.Education &
ExperienceMaster's degree in Electrical Engineering or related
field, and Ph.D. is preferred.Additional Requirements
