Job Description:

Summary

Posted: Mar 3, 2024

Role Number:200540613

As a Wireless PHY Systems & Simulation Engineer, you will be a core member of our highly innovative and visible Wireless System-on-Chip (SoC) design team! What does that mean? You will help define modem architectures, develope physical-layer algorithms, and invent embedded DSP algorithms for chips enabling exciting new wireless applications! One emphasis of your specific role will be end-to-end simulation of sophisticated systems, modeling components from a multitude of signal processing fields. Including but not limited to propagation channel modeling, RF/antenna abstractions, PHY & MAC protocols and algorithms, and sensor fusion schemes to fuse wireless and non-wireless metrics. Application areas include ultra-wideband sensing and specialized wireless audio; products enabled or enhanced by our team's SoC's include specialized audio headsets (such as AirPods) and iPhones.

Key Qualifications

  • Expertise in Digital Signal Processing, Wireless Communications and wireless chip development.
  • Proven grasp of complex wireless systems with strong capability to comprehend dependencies between system components and protocol layers and their interactions.
  • Extensive hands-on SW programming skills for modeling and simulation of sophisticated systems from RF/PHY layer signals and channel modeling. All the way to MAC protocol/networking simulations; corresponding proficiency with Matlab/C/C++ required.
  • Experience with fixed-point design and RTL vector generation. HLS experience is a plus.
  • Experience with handling and processing large amounts of field and simulation data, including user-friendly visualization of complex test setups and simulation results, including measurement accuracies, system latencies, etc.
  • Some familiarity with common analog/RF impairments encountered in wireless systems.
  • Experience with and/or knowledge of industry standards such as Bluetooth, Ultra-Wideband, GPS, and/or other wireless protocols.
  • Experience in lab FPGA/silicon bring-up, PHY/RF/MAC testing and debugging and usage of lab equipment.
  • Some experience in IMU and/or camera/image signal processing, and/or some prior engagements in standards organizations or industry consortia are strong pluses.

    Description

    You will work closely with other PHY systems and algorithm engineers, analog and digital designers, FW & SW Engineers in the areas above. In order to invent/derive, simulate, implement, verify and test physical layer features, to make new chips and enable a variety of novel applications in the portable & wearable consumer electronics space. As well as collaborate with multi-functional teams to model, simulate, and visualize the performance of complex systems from user movement, wireless propagation models, and RF/antenna behavior, via PHY/MAC protocols and associated signal processing mechanisms, all the way to simulating inertial sensor fusion processing.

    Education & Experience

    BS +10 years of relevant experience. Focus on Dig. Comm's & Signal Proc., or equivalent is preferred.
