RF carrer for baseband 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.

hi RF gurus,
Thank you for reading my post. I wanted some help on figuring if a career in RF was right for me. I have a MS in EE and nine years experince in baseband communication system design (mod/demod, error correcting codes, MIMO, OFDM etc.). I also have expert knowledge in CDMA and LTE. I want to move to california (from NY) within next six months. Unfortunately, jobs in my areas of expertise have all but dried up. I was looking to update my skill so that more job opputrtunity open up for me. I found RF system design to be an attractive alternative.
Will self learning RF system design(in addition to my current expertise) open up oppurtunities? I realise circuit design is beyond my scope but i am not too choosy about the kind of work: I just want a foot hold in california.
Please advise.

Hello bugsy,

The direction you want to pursue is excellent. From my experience in various telecommunication companies (Qualcomm is one among them), there is a shortage of system engineering who posses both baseband (DSP, Phy layer etc) & RF system knowledge. So if you can get additional RF system level knowledge by yourself it is great. Do not worry about lack of experience in circuit design, there are plenty of engineers in the market for that.

Good luck!

Best regards,

- IR
