Freescale Semiconductor is the global leader in embedded processing solutions, supporting the automotive, consumer, industrial and networking markets. From microprocessors and microcontrollers to sensors, analog ICs and connectivity ? our vital technologies are the foundation to the innovations that make our world greener, safer, healthier and more connected. For more than 50 years, Freescale has played an essential role in the evolution of embedded solutions, and we want you to be a part of our next half-century. Freescale is committed to attracting great people of all styles, thoughts, cultures and backgrounds. We are driven by a culture of ownership, teamwork, and results ? an engagement worldwide of more than 18,000 employees.
Freescale?s Radio Frequency (RF) Group is the number one supplier of RF power transistors for cellular infrastructure, supporting all major bands and transmission standards. Our RF power transistor technology is also used in products for the broadcast, avionics and ISM markets. Freescale also provides monolithic microwave ICs (MMICs) for cellular infrastructure applications. As a pioneer in RF technology, Freescale was the first to develop RF power transistors in LDMOS technology; the first to implement industry standards in air-cavity ceramic and over-molded plastic packing for RF power devices; -and the first to deliver a 2 GHz discrete RF power transistor in over-molded plastic package capable of a 200 degree Celsius junction temperature.
RF is looking for an engineering technician to perform large signal device characterization using load pull techniques. Minimum duties involve LP measurement of device engineering LDMOS technology platform die types typically in the 0.9 ? 4 GHz frequency ranges. In addition, the candidate will be responsible for LP station hardware setup, calibration, maintenance and ongoing system verification to assure measurement accuracy .
Depending on candidate qualifications and career interests, duties may also include:
PCB layout, ordering, characterization and validation of LP fixtures.
Device build coordination including bonding diagram generation, compilation of routine DC/capacitance test data, processing and compilation of LP data into master database.
Participating in next generation FPS software development (Beta testing), generating Matlab, LabView and/or VB scripts for LP data post processing.
Identifying/recommending software and/or process enhancements to improve productivity and data accuracy.
BSEET or Associates degree and 5+ years relevant work experience with a focus on large signal device characterization using load pull techniques.
Direct experience in the set up and de-bugging of load pull systems. The applicant must have a strong background in several of the following areas:
Deep understanding of Vector Network Analyzers and there calibrations (SOL & TRL).
Hands-on experience using analog and RF instruments including signal generator, spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, power meters, power supplies and pulse generators.
Good understanding of RF fundamentals, industry standard test methods, test equipment operation and cable/connector care.
Familiarity with high efficiency RF power amplifiers, i.e. Doherty amplifiers and supply modulation.
Familiarity with Pulsed RF measurements.
Proficient with major MS Office tools, especially Excel.
Ability to build circuits from mechanical and electrical documentation.
Strong written and verbal communication skills and ability to work in teams.
Ability to thrive in a dynamic environment with a high level of personal drive and energy.
Capability with software tools such as AutoCAD, ADS, Sonnet, Momentum and JMP a plus.
