Job Overview :

Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives.

But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products.

This is the Invention Age - and this is where you come in.

Qualcomm CDMA Technologies is the largest developer of wireless communication technology in the world. Our ASIC modem design teams deliver cutting-edge hardware and software products across every established wireless standard and protocol.

Individuals in this role are responsible for developing our next generation cellular modems in the following technologies : GSM, CDMA, UMTS, LTE, WiFi and 5G.

As a Senior Staff WLAN Modeling Engineer, you will be responsible for defining, implementing and unit-testing of various tiers of Hardware models for the WLAN Hardware Data-Paths and Control Plane using advanced modeling techniques.

You will develop Models that include behavioral, architectural, performance, and cycle-accurate models. You will design the Models in terms of what is modeled vs.

what is not modeled, create detailed Model design specifications for partitioning between blocks, sub-blocks and interfaces, and well as validating the end-to-end performance of the models and debugging performance issues at a system level.

You will work with cross-functional teams including Hardware RTL Design team, Hardware DV team, Standards / Systems team and Firmware team to define Model interfaces to allow them to be integrated into various Platforms where the Models serve as HW DV golden reference, System Performance Validation reference, and FW Virtual Prototyping platform.
