Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

RFIC --> RF design using integrated circuit (IC) technologies.
Thus, I would think you should know something about the process
technology you will be designing in (CMOS, SiGeCMOS, GaAs) and its associated
advantages/disadvantages. Also, one should probably study up on realizing
distributed components in ICs. By this I mean how to realize such things
as a Wilkinson power divider using integrated lumped elements and spiral
inductors using active devices.

If you have an interview
to be an RFIC designger and do not even know what the acronym means
then you are in trouble.Posted
