Microtech Global Ltd

Up to £70,000 per annum



Permanent | Full Time




JOB AD: We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Hardware Engineer (Analogue/Digital) to complement the existing design team playing a significant part in the product development of a novel phased array antenna system. The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic London-based technology company developing and delivering complex and innovative products into the aerospace, maritime and land mobile industries. Essential At least 3 - 5 years experience in a relevant industry working on leading-edge embedded product developments in the data communications, automotive or aerspace industry. Strong background in high speed Digital and Analogue circuit design from initial concept, specification and design through to software and systems integration, test and manufacture. Knowledge of FPGA design, simulation and test using a high-level programming language such as VHDL/Verilog, in particular. (Altera / Intel Cyclone family). Strong embedded systems design skills using the ARM Cortex family of MCUs, combined with FPGAs and Ethernet Switches. Familiar with interfacing to external memories and peripherals such as Parallel/SPI Flash, SRAM, Ethernet PHYs, CAN, Serial using industry standard interfaces. Good understanding of low voltage point of load power supply design (switch mode and linear), control loops and power estimates. Familiarity with simulation tools & test methods for transient analysis, loop stability and frequency response analysis. Significant product design experience of complex, mixed signal multi-layer PCB designs and the management of associated debug and integration issues Experienced in the layout of high-speed multi-layer PCBs including micro-via technology, stackup constraints and controlled impedance traces. Solid knowledge of high-speed design techniques. Familiarity with schematic capture tools such as Altium Designer and tools for SI simulations. Ability to liaise with and manage PCB layout engineers, fabricators and assembly houses. Conversant with product safety and design for EMC. Design for test - DFM/DFT for volume manufacture. JTAG boundary scan development. Competent practical experience in the use of test equipment such as scopes, logic analysers,spectrum analysers, signal generators, power meters. Creative with good problem-solving abilities. Able to adapt to a fast-moving environment. Desirable: Agood first or upper 2nd Class degree (BEng/MEng) in Electronic/Electrical Engineering from a leading University. Design of products containing the STM32F4/F7/H7 family of MCUs would be a distinct advantage. A good understanding of the complete product development process preferably for high-reliability environments, namely aerospace, marine or automotive products. Knowledge of the product approvals process to meet CE, EN and the relevant product approvals (emissions, susceptibility, environmental) for the Aero (DO-160G) and marine markets. The ability to analyse the trade‐offs between performance, manufacturability, cost and user experience.
