Role Overview

The RF Test Engineer will be primarily responsible to provide support to the manufacturing capability to investigate non-compliant high-power amplifiers (and their high-level build), develop tuning methods to improve power amplifier performance and enhance current test philosophies to streamline series production testing.

Continual assistance to operations / testing, regularly reporting on non-compliant hardware and the ability to recover it to assist manufacturing programmes.

Perform RF calibration / characterisation to test systems and ensure multiple platforms are within measurement uncertainty of each other.

Skills/Experience:

  • HNC/HND (Electronics) Level of Qualifications or equivalent, plus substantial level of experience in RF Manufacture and Test.
  • Experience of RF testing, select-on-test tuning and product diagnostics in coaxial and wave guide systems, up to (but not explicit by) J-Band. Working with power amplifiers, preferably high-power applications.
  • Familiar with using a Vector Network Analyser to take small signal and S-Parameter measurements. Along with a VNA, experience with signal / spectrum analyser equipment & measurements, analogue / digital signal generators and power sensors.
  • Experience testing power amplifiers and ability to measure / interrogate pulse characteristics.
  • Knowledge of solid state technology within RF devices would be advantageous, in particular GaN & GaAs devices and their advantage / place within products of the future.
  • Attention to detail.
