MMIC Design Engineer Opportunity -- Nitronex Corporation - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

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:



Fax: 919-807-9200

US Mail:

Attn: Human Resources

Nitronex Corporation

2305 Presidential Drive

Durham, NC 27703

Core Competencies:

The ideal candidate will have complete capability in designing MMICs, bringing the following skills to Nitronex:

• A Master's or PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or other relevant field.

• 7+ years of MMIC development experience in GaN or GaAs.

• 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 their limitations.

• In-depth understanding of RF testing (s-parameters, I-V, pulsed I-V, load-pull), calibration (SOLT, TRL, LRM, etc.), verification, and analysis.

• 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.

• Able to communicate effectively with peers both formally through design reviews and informally.

• Desire to work in a fast-paced start-up environment.

Job Responsibilities:

• Design and test MMIC products from conception to release.

• Aid 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).

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
