Director of RF Development - Exalt Communications

Company Exalt Communications
Job Type Contract Job
Job Category 3g RF Design WCDMA UMTS Job
Salary N/A
Location Campbell, CA, USA
Region: North America
Education Bachelor's Degree
Work Experience 2-5 years
Job Reference
Details Based in Silicon Valley and founded by a unique group of seasoned engineers and executives, Exalt Communications is an early stage start up focused on development of next generation high capacity wireless systems. The company is well funded, shipping products to multiple customers, and seeks additional talent for its next phase of expansion.


- Direct and manage all activities, tasks, and projects related to RF design, as well as the group responsible for such activities and tasks.
- As a working hands-on manager, design and develop IF, RF, microwave, and millimeterwave circuits and subsystems at frequencies ranging from 10 MHz to over 40 GHz. These circuits and subsystems must meet the stringent transmission requirements of carrier class telecom/networking systems produced by Exalt. Furthermore, they must operate in harsh environmental conditions including shock, vibration, and very wide ambient temperatures. High linearity, low phase noise, high reliability, exceptional selectivity, and receiver sensitivity are few examples of the basic requirements for these functional blocks. Specific functional blocks include low noise synthesizers, IQ modulators, power amplifiers, LNAs, up/down converters, patch antennas, switches, filters, and gain stages.
- Understand and apply low cost, high performance design techniques, with full knowledge of fundamental RF/microwave circuit design techniques down to the transistor level. Integrate at the lowest level in order to minimize cost. A track record of delivering commercial products with these techniques is a must.
- Use modern simulation tools to fully predict the behavior of all functional blocks prior to committing to board level prototyping.
- Create, institute, and manage processes for key component selections, dual sourcing, vendor selection, evaluation and authorization, design reviews, etc. These processes must be designed to help the RF department scale as the company grows.
- Interface with System and MAC/PHY designers, project managers, other engineering managers, product managers, and operations managers to define overall requirements, and hold regular meetings to review progress and to coordinate all interdependent tasks.
- Own the Exalt products from RF/microwave standpoint, from cradle to grave. From concept all the way to obsolescence, direct and manage all issues related to design, components, vendors, production, customer issues, marketing issues, project management, documentation, ECOs, testing, verification, regulatory compliance, presentations to peers and management staff.
- Maintain detailed and organized development notes and lab test results. Look for and initiate patent ideas and proceed to process patents as required.
- Actively seek and monitor the latest trends in RF technology and introduce into Exalt products as appropriate. Look for and initiate ways in which Exalt can stay ahead of its competition, from RF/microwave standpoint.


- Education: Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering, MSEE preferred
- A minimum of 3 years active management experience
- Communications systems knowledge from Baseband through RF
- A minimum of 7 years of experience in general analog and RF circuit design for wireless communication systems, including synthesizers, up/down converters, low noise front ends, Phase Locked Loops (PLLs), power amplifiers, modulators, and demodulators
- Must be experienced in design for automated test and manufacturing
- Hands on lab experience, including systems integration and debugging
- Must have good communication and interpersonal skills. Must be able to communicate with all members of the team, peers, and upper management. Must be able to present clearly and concisely ideas, proposals, analysis, results, etc.
- Must be able to use modern software based tools for analysis and simulation of RF systems and circuits, like Ansoft Designer or Microwave Office
- Ability to integrate digital circuitry into RF circuitry and manage PCB layout
- Should have prior experience in regulatory certification and management of electromagnetic interference (EMI) on PCBs
