    * multi-stage LNA design
    * wafer probing and testing

  • 10/2011 - 03/2012

    • Siemens Healthcare
  • Validation Engineer
  • documentation in line with internal and regulatory specifications. Carried out testing and approval
    verification of external RF components:

    * High power rf amplifier test and analysis
    * RF testing:
    * Frequency & time domain
    * Spurious and noise
    * Reliability and safety analysis
    * Integration with MRI system
    * Test report and documentation

    Extensive electromagnetic analysis was used to define the passive elements and package and provide
    data for the reliability analysis.
    Carried out T/R module verification and validation within the radar subsystem testing,
    processing data and validating it.
