RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Description: Modelithics, Inc. is seeking a Senior RF Test
Engineer who is experienced with RF testing, RF / microwave lab equipment and
lab software as well as having experience with I-V measurements / transistor linear
and nonlinear measurements, particularly high-power load pull. Must have the
ability to efficiently multi-task in a high paced, rapidly changing environment.
Primary duties are to develop, manage assembly and execution of test plans for
multiple customer projects. Additional responsibilities include managing the
receipt and inventory of customer DUTs and other project related components.
Additional duties may include data analysis and review, generating test data
reports, develop/design models of calibration standards, analyze/assess calibration
quality as well as support the modeling engineers and engineering team. Additional
assistance may include training, supervision and task scheduling for other engineers
and engineering assistants.
Required Education: Bachelor's degree and minimum 2+ experience
with electronic measurements. Applicants with a Master's degree in these areas
will also be considered.

Modelithics, Inc. is the industry leader specializing in RF, microwave and
millimeter-wave measurements and measurement-based modeling of RF and microwave
components and semiconductor devices. Our software products include libraries
of high-accuracy passive and active component models. Available library models
include Microwave Global Models™ for RLC components, non-linear diode
models, non-linear and noise models for low, medium, and high power transistors
as well as system level component models for functional blocks like filters,
attenuators, switches amplifiers and mixers. Modelithics model libraries load
conveniently as "model pallets" or design kits within popular Electronic Design
Automation (EDA) software tools such as Keysight Technologies' Advanced Design
System (ADS), Keysight Technologies' Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment/Microwave
Office™, ANSYS® HFSS™, Sonnet® Suites™ and Cadence.
Modelithics also offers a broad array of measurement services , including
S-parameters, noise parameters, pulsed IV, high power RF testing, and source/load-pull.
We also specialize in extraction of equivalent circuit and black-box models
for linear and non-linear devices that can be inserted into the most popular
software tools on the market. The mission of Modelithics, Inc. is to provide
exceptionally accurate models and measurements. We help accelerate high frequency
product design and serve as a value-added partner to device, instrumentation
and design software suppliers.
Modelithics, Inc. was founded in 2001 by Dr. Lawrence Dunleavy and Dr. Thomas
Weller, who are known world-wide for their expertise in microwave circuit design,
characterization, modeling and electromagnetics.
