Experienced RF/Analog Designer Seeks New Opportunity - RF Cafe Forums

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 Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Professional Experience

Nucomm(RF Extreme, Vitec Ltd.) 2007-2009
Responsible for all phases of product realization including design, design verification and manufacturing test, and support of manufacturing line and after market service. Extensive simulation of new designs and for improving product yield. Developed a practical implementation of a wide band bias tee for remote RF transmit head applications, enabling a single RF path for 2/7 GHz bands, reducing cost. RF/Analog expertise complemented by ability to diagnose FW/SW issues. Products include microwave video transmitters and receivers operating up to 13 GHz for electronic news gathering(ENG.)

Tyco Electronics/M/A-Com
2004-2007 Product Development Engineer - Board level designs including synthesizers, VCOs, and a polar transmitter IC evaluation platform. Designs were debugged and tested in the lab. Contributed to a system level proposal for a telemetry transmitter for unmanned aircraft including the cascade analysis in Spectrasys.

Andrew Corp. Power Amplifier Group/Celiant Corp./Lucent Technologies NWG 1997-2004
Wireless RF/Analog Design Engineer – Responsible for board level design and testing of an RF digital predistortion (DPD) board for a UMTS WCMDA multicarrier power amplifier, a DPD board for TDMA multicarrier amplifier, a TDMA wide band radio transmitter and an up/down converter for an in-building TDMA pico cell. Aftermarket customer support and FMA of amplifier products.

Lucent Access BU 1995-1997
Systems Architect – Responsible for managing a physical layer team in developing various architectures for fiber-to-the-home/curb. Worked with research in identifying break-through technologies offering significant cost advantage.

AT&T Network Wireless Group and Consumer Products 1990-1995
RF Board Designer – Design of a CDMA radio. Provided factory support for a dual mode TDMA radio test unit circuit pack. Receiver design for TDMA and CDMA low cost handsets.

Bell Laboratories/AT&T Microelectronics 1981-1990
Fiber Optic Component Designer – Responsible for the design of fiber optic transmitters and receivers for the long distance network and LAN applications. Addressed all aspects of the design for manufacture, testing and supporting the factory. Power Amplifier Designer – Responsible for the design of an 11 GHz power amplifier prototype for terrestrial digital radio. Worked with device researchers in evaluating state of the art power GaAs FETs for use in the design.

Previous Experience
Project engineer responsible for the design and manufacture of high reliability antennas for the Space Shuttle at Watkins Johnson. Introduction to manufacture of microwave hybrid circuits (DC – 40 GHz) used in frequency counters at Hewlett Packard.

Design and testing tool experience – ADS, Momentum, RFDE, Eagleware, Microwave Office, SPICE, Matlab, Excel, Visual Basic, PERL/TK. Familiar with Labview and Agilent VEE. MPLAB/C18 for embedded systems.
