An exciting opportunity has opened for a senior
MMIC designer that is looking to develop MMIC RF
and Microwave functions on Nitronex’s unique GaN-on-Silicon
process. You’ll be designing MMICs that span from
UHF to Ka band, utilizing state-of-the-art tools
and semiconductor processes. Nitronex is a quickly
growing company that will require MMIC designers
to utilize new technologies that will enable devices
to operate to Ka band and as high as 65V. Candidates
must hold an MSEE, have 7+ years of MMIC development
experience, preferably in a compound semiconductor
(GaN or GaAs), have a solid grasp of RF fundementals,
and a desire to work in a fast paced, startup environment.
To apply, submit your resume and cover letter to:
Durham, NC 27703
The ideal candidate will have complete capability
in designing MMICs, bringing the following skills
• A Master’s or PhD in Electrical
Engineering, Physics, or other relevant field.
• 7+ years of MMIC development experience in GaN
• Extensive experience with an RF simulation
package such as MWO or ADS.
• Working knowledge
of linear and non-linear FET models and their limitations.
• Working knowledge of passive element models and
• In-depth understanding of
RF testing (s-parameters, I-V, pulsed I-V, load-pull),
calibration (SOLT, TRL, LRM, etc.), verification,
• Hands-on approach to solving
problems including working in the lab to help debug
test issues and at times performing RF testing.
• Independent, able to execute on design level tasks
with little supervision or oversight.
to communicate effectively with peers both formally
through design reviews and informally.
to work in a fast-paced start-up environment.
• Design and test
MMIC products from conception to release.
in the identification of opportunities and technical
feasibility of design performance targets.
Define RF and DC test requirements, test plans,
calibration structures, verification techniques,
and data validation.
• Provide guidance for advanced
technology roadmap to improve product performance
• Provide recommendations to advance design capability
• Assist in Advanced Technology Programs to execute
on research goals that are funded by government
research grants (e.g. SBIR).
