Job Description

The MSGP (MMIC, Subsystems, Gateware and Processing) section within Keysight labs in India supports a global team of MMIC and Subsystems Engineers that design leading mmWave front-end products. These products address variety of market applications (5G, Automotive Radar, Aer/Defense) partnering with Solutions Groups.

We have an opportunity for an experienced hardware design engineer to join our team. Candidate will be responsible for the following:

In this role,

  • You will focus converting block diagrams into PCB based instrument cards that span digital, power supply and RF/mmWave domain.
  • Create a schematic by choosing components that meet the specification provided in the block diagram
  • Simulating performance critical sections of the PCB using industry standard tools like LTSpice / ADS
  • Do hand calculations along with simulations to prove performance incremental or critical trade-offs, based on sound engineering rationale, when they must be made.
  • Layout of board of high complexity using HDI PCB practices

Your daily activities will involve working closely with Board Designers in a globally distributed team, so flexibility to work late or early hours is important.

Specific Responsibilities:

  • Board schematic capture
  • Circuit Simulation of performance critical sections
  • Board Layout

Job Qualifications


  • Degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering and a minimum of 8 years of work experience or EE Masters with 4 to 5 years of experience in Board Design.
  • Must haves for Schematic capture and Simulation Experience –
  • Can demonstrate the analysis of analog and digital power circuits without using a computer
  • Reads datasheets and understands specifications of electronic components
  • Creates simulation models on their test benches, and documentation analysis findings with minimum guidance
  • Hand-draw clear schematics
  • Understands circuit analysis in the time domain and the frequency domain.
  • Experience in integrating over 3D Design constraints like box outlines or shields.
  • Must haves for Layout Experience –
  • Completed at least 10 to 12 board layouts of > 10 layers and varying domain (High Speed Digital, Analog) complexity. Experience in Mentor Expedition design tools is a strong desire, although people with Experience in PADS/Altium/Allegro can also apply

Desired skills/knowledge:

  • Understands Heat transfer in a PCB Context
  • Understands Signal integrity.
  • Experience in selecting stack ups based on applications
  • Understands latest PCB Technology trends and DFM/DFT/DFA and attempts to apply them in current context
  • Familiar with LTspice, ADS.
  • Experienced with device measurements and test equipment such as an oscilloscope or VNA is a plus
  • Hands on experience with semiconductor measurement, including device fixturing is a plus
