Job Title - Staff WLAN Hardware Systems Engineer
Location - San Jose, CA
Duration - 12 Months
WLAN HW Systems Engineer will be responsible for chip and product-solution-level development for next generation wireless products. The work will primarily focus on WLAN PHY/RF performance characterization and will require debug and implementation of C code running on an embedded ARM processor. It will also involve up front wireless communication system performance analysis, system bring-up on the bench on Silicon platforms, and performance optimization for the target system. This position will closely work with HW and SW engineers to resolve functional issues and fine tune performance to make best-in-class WiFi/Communication products. The Systems Integration Engineer will - Conduct up front system analysis based on product marketing requirements. Predict overall system performance and provide engineering feedback on cost and performance tradeoffs such as power VS EVM. - Identify, define and execute test plan for comprehensive and effective silicon bring up at PHY layer. Various operation conditions will be covered such as channel model, noise and interference environment. Analyze test result, debug issues, improve performance and generate competitive analysis. - Bring up WLAN, validate functionality, and characterize performance on various platforms- Drive system performance optimization from the perspective of HW/SW/Algorithms.
Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Signal Processing, Mathematics or related field. 5 years of relevant experience.
