Location United Kingdom - Cambridge
Job Overview This role would be ideal for a fresh engineering intern in electronics, analogue and digital communication. The Radio Integration and Optimisation Group (RIOG) primary function is Bringup, Evaluation and optimization of new radio silicon. The group consists of multi-disciplined (RF, Analogue, Software, Digital) engineers who, working closely with specialist design and systems engineers, use this broad base of knowledge to provide optimal tuning and configuration solutions for radio operation. The role is predominantly lab-based working at circuit, cell, subsystem and system level the RIOG team are responsible for bring up, debug, evaluation, optimization and enhancement of the radio performance of Qualcomm silicon radios. Focusing on all aspects of the silicon design that influence the performance, qualification and test of the connectivity radios, including elements of the embedded firmware for Radio Control and defining the Production Test strategy and test limits for the radio. The individual blocks are verified in isolation before building into a complete radio system to include digits, firmware and analogue/RF. The intern will be assigned to a project and take part in responsibly for the performance and operation of the radio, interfacing directly with analogue and digital designers, systems engineers and radio control fw engineers to provide a complete radio system solution for verification and validation in characterization over temperature and process skews. The intern will take part for generating Python test scripts, writing embedded C code for fw radio control. Key Involvements: Understanding taking responsibly for own work.
