Job Details

What you will be doing:
  • Designing and developing hardware systems that include circuit boards, processors, memory subsystems, LCDs, touch screens, and high-speed network interfaces using Cadence Allegro tools.
  • Designing and developing analog circuits for rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries, low voltage power supplies, USB power delivery, and hardware systems for measuring resistance and power-over-ethernet parameters.
  • Developing and maintaining FPGA designs (VHDL) for custom high-speed Ethernet packet processing and analysis.
  • Creating hardware design specifications and documents for new products.
  • Collaborating with software developers to create low level drivers for hardware turn-on and SW support
  • Overseeing PCB layout resources for placement and routing of signals to meet signal integrity
  • Interacting with PC layout and manufacturing for PCB/A fabrication and testing.
  • Supporting currently shipping products when component or product issues arise by implementing design changes as needed.
  • Specifying new parts, vendors, and schematic part symbols as needed for new designs
  • Interfacing to our PLM system for specification and control of component parts and bill of materials
  • Working with component vendors for selection and preparation of detailed specifications for new components
  • Working with software, mechanical, manufacturing, and test engineers to design and release products into manufacturing.
  • Understanding and implementing thermal management solutions based on early thermal modeling, bench testing, and chamber testing to find cost effective thermal solutions as needed.
  • Working to extend battery life by early estimating and application of power reduction techniques.
  • Conducting EMI/ESD compliance pre-scans and testing and then using mitigating design techniques to ensure designs meet compliance criteria that are needed to ship world-wide.

Skills needed:
Experience with PCB/A design for high-speed networking interfaces and embedded CPU subsystems.
Experience with Cadence Allegro schematic capture and PC layout tools. Experience with Altera and/or Xilinx VHDL and general FPGA design. Experience in design of embedded CPU sub-systems. NXP i.MX6/8 family CPUs is a plus.
Knowledge of high-speed communication bus design and layout techniques such as USB, PCIe, XFI. Familiarity with DDR2/DDR3 memory design, and I2C and SPI busses.
Knowledge of various hardware debugging equipment, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and spectrum analyzers. Experience with EMI and ESD compliance testing and design mitigation strategies.
