Information for Entry level Rf engineer - 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.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Electrical Engineering from University of Houston.My area of interest is RF and Microwave circuit designing.
I know a couple of designing and testing tools like Ansoft Designer and Remcom FDTD.I have also taken courses related to RF and Microwave both in my undergrauate and graduate studies.
I will be graduating in FALL 2004.Hence before finding a job I wanted to know what a company looks in for an entry level engineer in the field of RF designing.Also could you give me information about some of the books and software tools that will help me in my pursue for a job in the above field.What I am expected to know before entering this field of RF designing as I see most of them require experience.

Greetings:

You should be familiar with basic concepts of RF design like S-parameters, Noise Figure, IP3 and link budget analysis.... you should know how to design building blocks of RF circuits like: Gain Blocks, Matching Networks, LC/Distributed Filters, VCO's, PLL's etc... familiarity with test equipment, familiarity with RF PCB layout and design considerations of PCB layout... knowing this might give you the advantage over others who lack this knowledge...

The most used design tools in the industry are: ADS, Microwave Office etc...it is a good idea to know one of them, but if your background includes the tools you mentioned, then it is easier to learn a new one, as they are all doing the same but only looks a little bit different.

Good luck, :-D
