Electrical Hardware Design Engineer

The individual selected for this position will be a skilled “hands-on” electrical engineer with diverse technical capabilities. The individual must be a self-starter with proven development experience working with integrated military avionics/electronic hardware and related test equipment.

In support of development and production hardware, the engineer will be expected to leverage their electrical engineering expertise to perform circuit and CCA design and analysis, FPGA/CPLD designs, technical trade studies, analog/digital/mixed signal interface design, reverse engineer legacy designs, component selection, evaluation of technology insertion/upgrades, and laboratory test and troubleshooting.

With a product focus, the individual is also expected to actively partner with operations personnel to resolve technical issues that are discovered during manufacture and test of deliverable hardware. This will include evaluating and troubleshooting box and circuit card level issues, assess test faults for root cause, identify disposition/corrective actions, and evaluate test equipment performance and integrity.

The selected electrical engineer is expected to have applicable experience in the following areas:

  • Digital design and troubleshooting in the area of embedded processors, microcontrollers, and VHDL based FPGAs that provide capability and functionality to a larger system
  • Analog and Mixed Signal design and troubleshooting (amplifiers, A/D and D/A conversion, power supplies, instrumentation, electro-optics, etc.)
  • Excellent working knowledge of common electronic circuits and components
  • Demonstrated experience in Product/Factory Support of DoD military electronics/avionics equipment
  • State-of-the-art electrical engineering design tools (schematic capture and simulation)
  • Design and manufacturing standards associated with complex multilayer CCAs
  • Strong “hands-on” laboratory skills (electronic lab/test equipment (oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, emulators, debuggers, etc.), soldering, safety procedures, etc.)
  • Working experience with Interface standards including military/avionics communication buses (i.e. ARINC-429, RS-422, Mil-Std-1553, Ethernet)
  • Standard backplane buses including VME, PCI, PCIE

The ideal candidate will thrive in a learning environment that encourages leadership and technical growth.
