Job DescriptionThis role would be ideal for an under graduate in electronics, maths, physics or computer science. The Radio Integration and Optimisation Groups primary function is bring up, evaluation and optimization of new silicon with a emphasis on RF performance of Bluetooth radios. The group consists of multi-disciplined (RF, analogue, software and digital) engineers who, working closely with specialist design and systems engineers, use their broad knowledge to provide optimal tuning and solutions for radio operation. The role is predominantly lab-based working at a circuit, cell, subsystem or system level. The individual will be assigned to a project and will work closely with an experienced engineer. They will interface directly with analogue and digital designers, systems engineers and radio control firmware engineers to provide a complete radio system for validation and characterization over the devices operating voltage range, temperature and process skews. Daily tasks include: 1)Python code generation to control instrument and data acquisition. 2)Writing embedded code to exercise the chip functionality. 3)Maintaining test scripts and developing new features to optimise the RF performance of Bluetooth radios. 4)RF bench measurements. 5)Data reviews with the project team. Minimum Qualifications *References to a particular number of years experience are for indicative purposes only. Applications from candidates with equivalent experience will be considered, provided that the candidate can demonstrate an ability to fulfil the principal duties of the role and possesses the required competencies. * Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Information Systems, Computer Science, or related field. *References to a particular number of years experience are for indicative purposes only.
