Senior Electronics Engineer
Salary: £50,000 to £60,000pa
Location: Northampton, Northamptonshire
A market leader manufacturer of optical and photonic products used within telecom, enterprise and data centre networks are seeking an experienced Senior Electronics Engineer.
You will be working with optical components and subsystems, including commercial lasers enabling advanced manufacturing of next generation complex products. The focus will be on design of hardware and firmware (electronics) used by the software test team to deploy test systems in operations and R and D.
Responsibilities - Senior Electronics Engineer
Design, procure and maintain custom instrumentation for the test and calibration of optoelectronic devices used across several manufacturing stages from chip, chip-on-carrier, gold-box and module.
Design and lifecycle manage custom electronics hardware (PCBAs) to enable test, alignment, calibration, burn-in and other manufacturing stages in a cleanroom environment.
The 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 expertise is required for FW, calibration and GUI development (e.g. embedded C, C#, VB.net).
This is a mix of analogue (typically source-measure circuits) and digital (control) electronics used to drive and measure the performance of electro-optical components.
Improve and maintain existing electronics solutions to ensure new requirements are met
Occasionally design evaluation (RF) boards for optoelectronics gold boxes and optical transceivers Design and supervise manufacturing of the hardware required to support product ramps
Critical skills include analogue and digital design at schematic level, HDL, debugging electronics, firmware and some software. Some layout expertise also required.
Qualifications and skills - Senior Electronics Engineer
Must have a M.Eng in electronics engineering or relevant discipline and 5 years hands on experience
Experience in mixed signal PCB design both schematic and layout
Knowledge and experience in digital low speed (e.g. SPI/i2C/USB)
Knowledge and experience in FPGA, digital high speed (e.g. RAM/USB3/PCIE) and VHDL
Knowledge and experience in Micro-controllers, embedded systems and firmware (C)
Knowledge and experience in analogue signal conditioning and circuits with OPMAPs
Knowledge of electronics simulation, prototyping and debugging skills
Desirable - Senior Electronics Engineer
Some experience in FPGA soft cores and RTOS - highly desirable
Some experience on source-measure DC circuits and power design (current/voltage sources, transimpedance amplifiers, TEC controllers, DACs/ADCs, board power supplies)
Some experience dealing with signal integrity issues - designs need to be optimized for speed
Previous work on fast links between control PCs and custom electronics and/or fast links between multiple PCBs
Some experience of C# , VB.net and/or Matlab
Previous work with instrumentation and optoelectronics
Previous experience with Oracle AGILE PLM
