PCB Design Engineer

Salary: £25,000 - £35,000

Location: Colchester


An internationally known manufacturer of single board computer products, primarily for the CompactPCI, VME, VPX and MicroTCA bus architectures are seeking a PCB Design Engineer.

All products are designed and developed totally in-house, and use leading-edge Intel microprocessors and a range of peripheral components. Increasingly, many of our products are designed to be produced in a ruggedized form, to operate in much harsher environments than standard commercial products.

You will be responsible for designing complex multi-layer SMT and PTH PCBs using the latest Cadence Allegro PCB design tools. The PCBs are typically 16 or 18 layers with high speed signals and high component densities, including BGAs. The position will also involve part creation and library maintenance, the generation of PCB assembly documentation and data and liaison with production to ensure the products are designed for manufacture.

Qualifications - PCB Design Engineer

The candidate should ideally have at least an HNC and experience of the following with the first being mandatory:

  • Using Cadence Allegro PCB design tools, including Design Entry HDL Version 17.2.

  • Designing mixed technology multi layer PCBs.

  • High-speed logic PCB design rules.

  • Producing assembly documentation.

In addition the following skills are desirable:

  • Use of Microsoft Word and Excel.

  • Use of TurboCAD for 2D drawings.

  • Use of Polar Speedstack for impedance calculations.
