I've graduated with my maters in EE with the area of emphasize in RFIC design. I did my thesis on RF design with the title of "Automous frequency and gain tuning methodology for a seventh order polyphase analog filter". Complex, yet simple to understand. Recipe book procedure.
I'm currently a slave with a white collar job as a RF Test Engineer in a corporate company.

I am interested in learning more about these specific areas. Thanks!
For this person, RFIC needs strong understanding of analog circuit design. In addition one needs to fully understand transreceiver architecture before even going into the design. From there, one can manipulate the architecture and design of RFIC and come out with your own idea of another transreceiver architecture.
My work is focused on front-end RF testing (wafer and chips) for various devices such as cordless phones, cellphones, GPS, satelite radio and etc. We also test for commercial and military products.
RF testing is cool, but one have to fully understand the test platforms. I do hope to get into a RF design job in the future...
