Mechanical Design Engineer (Thermal Design & Board Assemblies Verification)

Posted on November 30, 2021

Description and Responsibilities:

Peraso is actively seeking a Mechanical Design Engineer to support the development of their next generation mmWave wireless technology and Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) chipsets.

  • Investigate and design innovative thermal cooling solutions for Peraso Baseband and Radio IC so they can operate within their defined temperature limits
  • Develop the 3D model of heatsinks for Peraso products
  • Design enclosures for Peraso Modules (plastic or metallic)
  • Thermal modeling for package, SIPs, and modules
  • Mechanical design, simulations and documentation
  • Thermal design and simulations and modeling
  • Engage with external vendors for test and production and seek out more economical and robust production solutions
  • Create mechanical drawings for our IC packages, antenna packages/modules and for thermal solutions (heat-sinks and cases)
  • Verify board assemblies by checking component clearances, connector mating tolerances, and calculating stress/strain on PCB due to mounting screws etc
  • Measure thermal performance of proposed solution using IR meter, thermos-couple, power meter, current meter, temp chamber and other lab equipment
  • Work with automated motorized equipment such as putting together a room emulator or antenna measurement system


  • Working knowledge with SolidWorks 2016 x64 Edition
  • Strong knowledge of fluid dynamic and heat transfer and semiconductor device thermal modelling
  • Experience with thermal simulations and modeling such as ANYS ICEPAK or similar tools
  • Strong knowledge of manufacturing processes (injection molding, CNC, milling etc) and their limitation/issues. Knowledge and connections with local and overseas production and prototype vendors is an asset
  • Bachelor degree in Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering and 3 years experience in the field of Thermal Design
  • Awareness of antenna radiation and mm wave EM techniques as it pertains to antenna/case enclosures is an asset



  • Peraso is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
  • You need to be legally eligible to work in Canada. While we are based in Toronto, due to COVID-19 this role can be conducted from any location at present. Our preference is for the incumbent to be Toronto based as some work in the Toronto office will be required.
