As an Engineer in RF Algorithm team you will be responsible for design, development, implementation, modification and testing of algorithms and other necessary software components in the NI RF Measurements Software. This mostly involves understanding and implementation of the PHY layer of Wireless Cellular and Wireless Connectivity standards. This software runs on NI Vector Signal Analyzer and Generators. You will also be responsible for the subsequent maintenance of the product that you were involved with while working on the later versions of the product or while working on new products.
Independently research and find solutions to complex problems in RF communication baseband design and development, understand Physical\Lower MAC layer sections of the relevant standard and devise digital signal processing algorithms and support modules in LabVIEW, develop the necessary API and integrate into the main product.
Track the evolution of cellular standards such as NR, LTE-A, LTE, WCDMA, GSM, CDMA-2k, EVDO or connectivity standards such as WLAN and BT. Extend the NI RF Measurements software support to evolutions in Standards and newer NI Hardware platforms.
Benchmark the performance of NI software on NI hardware with competitor RF Analyzer’s\Generator’s\Software\Hardware. Provide algorithmic improvement inputs in terms of speed, memory and accuracy enhancing the NI products accordingly. Constantly keep up on newer NI products and the knowledge of competitor hardware and software.
