Information for Entry level Rf engineer - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Electrical Engineering from University of Houston.My area of interest is RF and Microwave circuit designing.
I know a couple of designing and testing tools like Ansoft Designer and Remcom FDTD.I have also taken courses related to RF and Microwave both in my undergrauate and graduate studies.
I will be graduating in FALL 2004.Hence before finding a job I wanted to know what a company looks in for an entry level engineer in the field of RF designing.Also could you give me information about some of the books and software tools that will help me in my pursue for a job in the above field.What I am expected to know before entering this field of RF designing as I see most of them require experience.

Greetings:

You should be familiar with basic concepts of RF design like S-parameters, Noise Figure, IP3 and link budget analysis.... you should know how to design building blocks of RF circuits like: Gain Blocks, Matching Networks, LC/Distributed Filters, VCO's, PLL's etc... familiarity with test equipment, familiarity with RF PCB layout and design considerations of PCB layout... knowing this might give you the advantage over others who lack this knowledge...

The most used design tools in the industry are: ADS, Microwave Office etc...it is a good idea to know one of them, but if your background includes the tools you mentioned, then it is easier to learn a new one, as they are all doing the same but only looks a little bit different.

Good luck, :-D

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
