Job Description

YesFreescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) is a global leader in embedded processing solutions, providing industry-leading products that are advancing the automotive, consumer, industrial and networking markets. From microprocessors and microcontrollers to sensors, analog integrated circuits and connectivity - our technologies are the foundation for the innovations that make our world greener, safer, healthier and more connected. Some of our key applications and end-markets include automotive safety, hybrid and all-electric vehicles, next generation wireless infrastructure, smart energy management, portable medical devices, consumer appliances and smart mobile devices. Life at Freescale includes a great boss, a great job and great rewards, all built on a foundation of ethics, customer focus and innovation. Joining our team means working with some of the most passionate, knowledgeable and collaborative people in the world, who care about making a difference.The company is based in Austin, Texas, and has design, research and development, manufacturing and sales operations around the world.
Freescale's Radio Frequency (RF) business group is the number one supplier of RF power transistors for cellular infrastructure, supporting all major bands and transmission standards. Our RF power transistor technology is also used in products for the broadcast, avionics and ISM markets. Freescale also provides monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) for cellular infrastructure applications. As a pioneer in RF technology, Freescale was the first to develop RF power transistors in LDMOS technology; the first to implement industry standards in air-cavity ceramic and over-molded plastic packing for RF power devices; and the first to deliver a 2 GHz discrete RF power transistor in over-molded plastic package capable of a 200 degree Celsius junction temperature.

The RF Digital Applications group was formed a year ago to provide digital enablement for the RF organization in two main areas:

Digital control systems based on ARM Kinetis microcontrollers with embedded firmware and Visual C# PC based applications, to provide evaluation and development systems for cellular and industrial application spaces.
Linux device drivers, test scripts and applications to support digital pre-distortion development to improve the efficiency of cellular power amplifiers.

This position is for an entry level associate with an interest in low level hardware and software for embedded systems and a supporting educational foundation that includes software, processor architecture and digital electronics. The successful candidate will work as part of the team with other RF engineers to specify, develop, validate and deploy products.

They will be involved in the complete software lifecycle and will use configuration management and defect tracking software. They will also contribute to the technical content for the software user documentation and reviewing the final documentation that will be generated by the technical documentation team.
