As a member of Intel's Bluetooth core product team developing multi-comm SoC solutions for the mobile, portable, wearable and IoT wireless markets, your work will focus on PHY and RF hardware integration and verification.
Requires broad understanding of multiple system areas and requires close interaction with architecture, RF and PHY design teams, and FW driver development teams to integrate, test, and debug industry leading Bluetooth solutions.
Responsibilities will include leading and/or collaborating on development and execution of pre- and post- silicon activities such as:
Radio control and calibration implementation definition
PHY/RF integration & test plan development
Bluetooth radio transceiver and baseband verification
PHY and RF subsystem performance analysis and hardware configuration optimization
Work closely with the PHY, Firmware, RF and VLSI silicon design teams to develop robust solutions meeting or exceeding the market requirements for both OEM and end-user customers
Must be a critical thinker, have strong self-direction, and be able to communicate clearly
Typical job tasks include:
Collaborating with PHY, RF Systems, and FW design teams to develop radio control algorithms and RF/PHY calibration implementation requirements
Development and execution of post-silicon HW/RF integration activities: test plans, test procedure, and compliance verification and optimization
Defining co-existence test coverage for multi-comm systems and leading compliance verification and issue resolution
Lab bring-up of wireless hardware, HW/FW integration and performance evaluation, and wireless subsystem debugging.
Defining ATE test cases and collaborating with ATE tool development team to implement automated test system
Generate and own documentation including such items as radio control definition, calibration implementation, integration plan, and test requirements and procedures
