Apple hiring iPhone antenna engineers for some reason

By Thomas Ricker posted Jun 30th 2010 6:25AM



Three Apple job postings for iPhone / iPad antenna engineers to "Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices." All three were posted on June 23rd, the same day that we started seeing widespread reporting of the left-handed reception issues. Coincidence?

Yeah because the entire team of antenna specialists got fired.

Wow, both of them? <g>

I would imagine that those fellows might not survive the end of the year at apple. That design was flawed from the beginning, there is NOTHING in my mind that doesn't think they knew about this before release. Something like that doesn't just... show up after how many people tested it before it went live?

The solution that apple has come up with?

Maybe they are just more concerned with how it looks then how it operates..

$19,500 Diamond iPhone 4 Comes With Free Ostrich Feet Case

The iPhone 4G Diamond Edition. Decorated with real diamonds. It costs $19,500—but comes with a free case made from ostrich feet. Such a great value. [Stuart Hughes]

"The diamonds are messin with my reception mannnn..."

I feel bad for the ostrich..

Wonder what it pays

5289285
Job title Antenna Engineer - iPad/iPhone
Location Santa Clara Valley
Country
City
State/Province
Job type Full Time
Job description Responsibilities: Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices. The candidate should be able to design antennas suitable for wireless handheld devices with excellent radiation performance, including TRP, TIS, SAR, and EMC. Work closely with other RF and antenna design engineers, mechanical and industrial designers, and EMC engineers to integrate the antenna design in our products. The candidate will be expected to performance radiation performance measurements, create test plans, execute them, publish test reports, provide feedback to the other design engineers, and lead some of the manufacturing of antenna.

Skills and Experience:
* 10+ years of experience in RF with at least 5 years in antenna design and test for wireless consumer products.
* MSEE required, PhD is preferred.
* Must have working experience of antenna design and tests, anechoic chambers, and RF test equipment. Hands-on is a must.
* Must have strong problem solving skills and strong working knowledge of radiation performance. Antenna and wave propagation theoretical background is essential.
* Experience with different wireless communication systems such as GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 802.11, Bluetooth, etc., including the corresponding system level specifications (e.g. ETSI 51.010, 51.05…) is essential.
* Experience with regulatory requirements and process for wireless consumer devices, including FCC, PTCRB, CTIA, ETSI, TIA/EIA, etc.
* Excellent communication skills required, both written & verbal.
* Detail oriented - taking data, using Excel, and making meaningful tables/graphs/averages.

Preferred Experience:
* Experience with simulation tools such as XFDTD, HFSS is a plus.

If you looking at this and scratching your head, then you are not qualified lol.
I think I would not last too long because i would refuse to get rid of my droid. That can not be negotiated with me lol. When asked why I do not have an iphone, I will tell Steve Jobs (or who ever the boss is at that location) "Its restrictive, it does not allow flash, its on at&t, the ip4 can not even do near as much as my droid and it was just released, and obviously you guys are having reception issues. So I would prefer not to buy a hi-end device with reception issues on an already poor 3g network of at&t".
