Your day to day activities include the following. Other duties may be assigned.
Work with supervisor, project, and engineering leads to complete and support engineering tasks with high quality that include:
Mixed signal circuit and board design, schematic capture, and BOM development.
FPGA logic design and simulation using VHDL.
Technical documentation development
Execute work above to meet or exceed the established engineering and company process and procedures as well as best design guidelines.
Execute work above with low to medium level supervision.
Provide clear communication of design and development approach or plans to engineering peers, leads, and management.
Provide low level guidance, direction, and leadership to engineering peers and associates.
Plan and perform digital engineering research or design development assignments, including responsibility for the digital engineering of part of a major project or a project of medium complexity.
Concisely translate product specifications into usable digital engineering data/requirements applicable to the particular assignment.
Complete high quality work while keeping budget and schedule constraints on track.
Coordinate the activities of associate engineers or technicians assigned to specific digital engineering projects.
Perform engineering analysis of medium complexity digital circuits and medium density mixed signal circuits.
Provide medium level analysis and technical review support during gate reviews and both internal and customer design reviews.
Perform assignments requiring appreciable creativity, originality and ingenuity.
Provide medium level technical and estimation support to proposals as directed by Supervisor.
Timely execute work per directions from project engineer or department manager.
Your education/experience includes:
Bachelor's degree (B.S.) in electrical engineering or equivalent from four-year college or university and five to eight years related experience and/or training.
Five to seven years plus experience in the design of mixed signal hardware circuits including FPGAs and CPLDs, ADCs and DACs, microprocessor and DSP processor circuits, linear and switching voltage regulators, clock circuits, active and passive filters, and serial communication circuits.
Five to seven years plus experience with the design, simulation, and test of FPGA based digital logic designs using industry standard design suites (Xilinx ISE preferred) and VHDL.
Experience with the decomposition, traceability, and verification of digital design requirements (DOORS experience is desired).
Experience in the stand alone bring up, debugging, and test of mixed signal circuit boards and hardware/software integration
Experience in the lab testing hardware circuits using test equipment including oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, power supplies, multimeters, and temperature chambers.
Medium level knowledge of signal integrity and best practices for layout of mixed signal circuits containing both high frequency and noisy signals.
Demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication skills (particularly in the development of project documentation) and an ability to collaborate in a team environment.
Experience in developing small signal digital and analog hardware designs and capturing them using industry standard schematic capture tools (Cadence/ORCAD preferred).
Ability to obtain a security clearance.
Knowledge of microprocessor architectures, the C programming language, and the embedded software development process a plus.
Knowledge of PWM, DC and AC power conversion systems a plus.
