Careers   Job Description

Principal Hardware Engineer - Phased Array RF Module

Location: 15 Terry Drive, Newtown, PA 18940

Department: Radar and Antenna Systems

Report To:
Director of Radar and Antenna Systems

Regular Full-time/Exempt


The RF modules will include power amplifiers, LNAs, analog and digital phased shifters and attenuators, switching and biasing circuits, and temperature compensation tables. The ideal candidate would be an experienced engineer (10+ years) with demonstrable experience in RF module design, and with a minimum of a Bachelorís degree in electrical engineering.

Major Duties

  • Major duties include design space trade-offs.
  • RF Module architecture definition with emphasis on power amplifier thermal management and linearity.
  • LNA noise and gain matching, analog and digital phase shifter and attenuator design as a common-leg-circuit for both transmit and receive and module calibration across frequency, temperature, and power levels for all phase shifts and attenuation.
  • RF/Microwave circuit design and simulation using microwave design software such as ADS/Microwave Office and HFSS/CST.
  • RF Circuit layout review and approval; test and evaluation of prototype circuits.
  • Preparation of assembly and acceptance test procedures.
  • Duties also include transition of deign to production, and support to production.
  • Other duties as assigned.


  • Previous experience in Phased Array RF Module design is essential.
  • 10 years industry experience in Radar and/or Phased Array industry.
  • Demonstrable Microwave Circuit Design experience, especially for LNA, power amplifiers, receivers, transmitters, and transceivers.
  • Design experience using bare-chip and SMT packaged microwave and millimeter-wave GaAs and GaN devices at S-, C-, and X-band is desired.
  • Expert level knowledge in amplifier linearity, inter-modulation distortion (IMD), linearization techniques, low noise matching, and multi-layer substrate design.
  • Familiarity with multi-layer ceramic substrates, e.g., LTCC or variants.
  • Expertise in use of microwave simulation and design software such as ADS, Microwave Office, HFSS, and/or CST.
