Adaptive filters (Wiener, LMS, TDLMS, RLS)
Nonlinear signal processing (polynomial signal processing, Volterra filters etc.
Equalization of linear and nonlinear systems: pre- and post-distortion compensat
ion of solid-state circuits (power amplifiers, A/D converters)
Multirate signal processing
Background in basic control theory concepts combined with hands on experience
Communications (wireless)
Experience in designing baseband transmitters and receivers (synchronizers, filt
ers, DDCs)
Familiarity with 3G & 4G beyond cellular standards (LTE, WiMAX), OFDM, WiFi, sof
tware radio
Hands-on experience with channel error correction coding
Versed in lab equipment: oscilloscopes, spectrum and logic analyzers, signal gen
Strong analytical, problem solving & debugging, verbal/written communication, pr
esentation and technical documentation skills
