Job Role:

Our continuing new product development programme has created a vacancy at a senior/principal level within the Electronic Design department.   We are looking for the right candidate to push the envelope across many electronic specialisms, including:  high temperature analogue design and component selection, data conversion, digital data communications, high reliability manufacture, and miniaturisation.   If you have in excess of 10 years’ experience in any or all of the following disciplines at senior or principal engineer level please apply:

  • Complex, bespoke FPGA logic and DSP design using VHDL-based design flow. Integration of FPGA embedded processor cores (e.g. ARM) and associated real-time code development. Familiarity with existing and emerging FPGA technologies and their application in our next generation systems.
  • Defining verification, test and debug methodologies including design of associated test fixtures at the FPGA and system level.
  • Algorithmic process partitioning between FPGA hardware and real-time microcontroller code implementation.
  • Low noise design of ≥24-bit analogue to digital data convertors and digitally configurable analogue front-end signal conditioning. Low noise, high signal integrity PCB layout to IPC Class 3 standards preferably using  Altium CAD.
  • High temperature analogue and FPGA-based digital electronic design using both rated and ‘proven’ components used outside of their normal temperature specification. Knowledge of component technologies and design techniques suitable for over-temperature operation with reduced lifetime. Particularly relevant design skills include:
    • Discrete DAC design
    • Analogue and digital PLL synchroniser design
    • High speed, fault-tolerant differential line driver/receiver design
    • Self-clocking coding schemes
    • Galvanic isolation techniques
    • Transformer and inductor design including materials selection
  • Multi-rail switchmode power conversion and low noise, precision regulator design.
  • Circuit design, design partitioning and component selection for high temperature thick film hybrid manufacture. Experience of the thick film hybrid project lifecycle.
  • Real-time embedded microcontroller code development within an RTOS environment.

We are looking for self-motivated, innovative and multi-skilled senior and principal engineers to join our superb team of like-minded people.  You will be based at our well-equipped modern premises in Somerton and will have close involvement in all stages our product development.  We have bases in Houston, Abu Dhabi, and Singapore where the successful applicant may be expected to visit and provide support for short periods of time.
