Renesas Electronics Americas (REA) is a dynamic, multi-cultural tech company where employees can learn, mentor and thrive. REA brings together the strong financial foundation of a multi-billion dollar global operation and the flexibility and velocity of a smaller organization. We are developing technologies for the latest advances in mobile computing, secured connected devices, autonomous driving, smart homes and factories and more. Our solutions are at the heart of products developed by the major innovators around the world. Join us and be part of what’s next in electronics.


Test development engineers are critical to Renesas's Radio Frequency Division (RFD).  They interface directly with the design team to define unique and novel test modes for our current and future generation products.  Test engineers also play a critical role in working with the applications team to shape the final device datasheet through characterization and DFT activities. 


As a test engineer, you are involved with the entire NPI (new production introduction) process that starts from feasibility, DFT, test H/W design, device bring up, ATE characterization, all the way to offshore production test program release. It is test engineer’s job to ensure that each device shipped meets the Renesas’s high quality standards. At the same time, a test engineer also works constantly to identify areas to maximize efficiency, test yield and minimize test cost.


Minimum Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical/Computer engineering or Computer science.
  • 5+ years of experience test H/W and test program development.
  • Strong test development and debug skills on Ultraflex platform.
  • Hands-on experience on ATE test development for analog, digital and RF. Proficient with ATE analog, digital and RF instruments, strong debug/troubleshooting experience.
  • Hands-on experience in debugging with RF bench equipment such as spectrum/vector signal analyzer, power meters, network analyzer.
  • Strong knowledge on RF test techniques such as P1dB, IP3 and noise figure.
  • Strong experience in programming such as visual basic, Perl, python, etc.


Preferred Requirements:

  • Familiar with RF devices. Knowledge on 5G/mmwave concept a plus.
  • Master’s degree in Electrical/Computer engineering or Computer science.
  • Experience in ATE characterization and test time reduction.
  • Experience with RF test methodologies.
