My client is a company known for its quality standards in various measurement and testing fields, including speed measurement, braking distance measurement, vehicle dynamics, and tire testing. They offer products like motorsport equipment for data logging and performance analysis, advanced 3D positioning and measurement systems with high accuracy.
You will be responsible for the design and development of the electronics and printed-circuit assemblies for products.
A diploma or degree in electronics, electrical engineering, or a closely related engineering discipline.
5+ years’ overall electronics and multilayer PCB design experience in a commercial environment.
2+ years’ recent experience using an enterprise level PCB design tool such as Altium Designer or Cadence OrCAD or Allegro.
Good understanding of PCB signal integrity, PCB stack-up, impedance control, ESD mitigation and EMC compliance.
Some knowledge of FPGA design techniques would be advantageous.
A proven track record in both analogue and digital layout and design for test and manufacture.
Creating both analogue and digital electronic designs and PCB layouts, which involve tasks like designing circuit symbols and component footprints and managing component libraries. This includes working closely with team members to determine PCB configurations, outlines, interfaces, and connections.
Producing technical documents to support the PCB manufacturing process, such as fabrication and assembly drawings, bills of materials, and manufacturing data. Collaborating with colleagues to design PCB production test strategies and develop the necessary testing platforms and fixtures.
Verifying, troubleshooting, and debugging hardware designs using tools like oscilloscopes and spectrum analysers, while also closely collaborating with colleagues involved in firmware development.
Providing support to colleagues in product assembly, testing, customer support, and the creation of product documentation.
Conducting EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) testing on products, which includes working with test laboratories to establish test plans, assisting with product compliance testing, and resolving compliance issues.
