Test Equipment Design:

The successful candidate will develop and support custom electronics solutions to enable manufacturing and test of electro-optical components across the company. The focus in on the design (hardware and firmware) of data acquisition electronics.

The role will see you:

  • Design and document custom electronics hardware (PCBAs) to enable test, alignment, calibration, burn-in and other manufacturing stages in a cleanroom environment.

  • Focus is on the data acquisition electronics equipment to support test automation rather than on the software to implement the actual test stages but some software knowledge is required (e.g. C, C#,
