The Electromagnetic-RF Design Enablement department in our organization develops and integrates flows and tools for simulating the analog and RF circuits designed by our client worldwide. The focus of this position is on Electromagnetic simulation aspects and application, and of the electromagnetic interference analysis for New Product Introduction (NPI). The methodology and flow aspects are based on industrial commercial tooling of well-known EDA vendors in the market.

About this role

In this job you will guide the different design applications, in close contact with the Product-Line designers and architects, and later compare it with measurements data. You will also work in close contact with the methodology and flow development team to bring the existing flows and methodologies to next level and provide consultancy and support for the design projects and products of the future.

Our clients' goal will be to assess the electromagnetic interferences between all levels of integrations (IP blocks in one die, die and package, package and PCB, antennas and finally the full system).

You will enable the prediction and mitigation of interferences between different subsystems and develop interference methodologies investigating the impact of IC floorplan, on-chip isolation strategies, package and PCB layouts, antennas and the EMC and interference performance of the complete system.

You will also provide consultancy and support to design teams across NXP to design electromagnetic interference free chips.

You will work together with electromagnetic experts in the department, you will be part of the EMC and Interference team and be requested to contribute to other EMC, modeling, and interference areas.

Your key areas of responsibility will be derived from the following elements, based on requirements and customer specifications:

  • Collect customer requirements and specifications for EMC & Interference and modelling in close cooperation with the requesting design teams.
  • Create electrical models using EM simulator of relevant parts of the system (IC, package, PCB, antennas).
  • Provide guidelines and recommendations for the design team to reduce electromagnetic interference.
  • Cooperate with EDA vendors (improvement requests, tuning of the flows) in sync with the EM and Interference team.
  • Develop and improve flows and methodologies that will be used for electromagnetic simulation.
  • Document findings in a form of technical reports and provide recommendations to the design teams.
  • Close the loop with measurements, closely cooperating with verification/validation teams.
  • Contribute to the overall improvement of the existing simulation methodologies.

Additionally, you can also contribute to the following activities:

  • Develop / maintain a broad knowledge of technical developments in the domain.
  • Provide first-line and expert support on EM simulation tools to the design community across NXP.
  • Develop EMC/Interference analysis test benches and run what-if analyses.
  • Contribute with the findings to improve RF designs of the future (Radar, 5G/6G designs, Radio, …).


  • Proficient in collecting and analyzing customer requirements for EMC & Interference, working closely with design teams.
  • Skilled in developing electrical models using EM simulators for various system components like ICs, PCBs, and antennas.
  • Ability to provide clear guidelines and recommendations to design teams for effectively mitigating electromagnetic interference
  • Experience in coordinating with EDA vendors to improve simulation flows and address enhancement requests.
  • Demonstrated ability to drive the development and refinement of methodologies for electromagnetic simulation.

  • Strong capability to document findings thoroughly and deliver comprehensive technical reports with actionable recommendations to design teams.

  • Stay updated with technical advancements in the field to contribute to ongoing improvement efforts.

  • Provide first-line and expert support on EM simulation tools to NXP's design community.

  • Establish and execute EMC/Interference analysis test benches, conducting what-if analyses as required.

  • Contribute insights to enhance future RF designs, including Radar, 5G/6G, and Radio systems.
