Job Summary:

This position will establish best known practices across Qorvo for EM simulation with the Ansys HFSS 3D and 3DLayout tools. The candidate will resolve Ansys simulation errors and successively establish best known practices across all of Qorvo’s technologies. The candidate will need the skills and acumen to collaborate with technology development, modeling and AD teams, to create, maintain, and improve EM models for switches, BAWs, SAWs, PAs, LNAs, and Laminates. The intern will work closely with the Qorvo design applications team presently developing a unified flow for exporting designs from ADS, AWR, and Cadence to HFSS. To verify best practices, device and laminate level design and measurement skills will be necessary to close the gap between simulation and measurement.



  • Work with a team of Design Applications engineers tasked with supporting internal and external design tools
  • Assist Qorvo designers with creating RF Module EM simulations using Qorvo best practices
  • Develop and validate best practices for EM simulation of SOI Switches and LNAs
  • Solve complex RF Module EM simulation accuracy issues 
  • Design and test verification structures at laminate and die level for various Qorvo technologies
  • Interface with 3rd party Electronic Design Automation (EDA) vendors to communicate Qorvo specific needs for vendor product support, maintenance and development. 
  • Work with compact model extraction teams to close the gap between EM and compact model accuracy issues.



  • MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science
  • Familiarity with high performance RFIC, MMIC and module design flows.
  • Proficiency with major electronic design automation (EDA) software platforms (e.g. HFSS, Cadence, Keysight, AWR).
