-Proven experience in Antenna Design and antenna product development covering a range of microwave frequencies; experience of UHF and/or frequencies in excess of X-band an advantage.
-Solid knowledge on EM theory and expertise with EM simulation tools such as CST or HFSS.
-Experience with embedded antenna design and miniaturized antenna design is a plus.
-Good knowledge of transmission line theory, matching circuits, active and passive RF circuit design.
-Hands-on experience performing S-parameter measurements and antenna pattern measurements, using anechoic chambers etc, including an ability to instruct external test houses, is essential.
