  • Highly proficient completing tasks including feasibility studies, circuit design, prototyping, schematic capture, verification, validation, qualification, and lifecycle support.

Education & Experience:

  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
  • Work or project experience designing robust embedded electronic systems
  • Experience with the following:
  • Complex circuit design and simulation
  • Serial communication busses (CAN, RS422, RS485, A429, etc.)
  • Designing embedded systems that include microprocessors, memory, programmable logic, RF, mixed signal, analog, and general-purpose electrical circuits
  • Switching DC power supply design and troubleshooting
  • Digital, analog, and RF test equipment
  • Schematic capture software (Altium, Cadence, etc.).

Other Desirable Experience:

  • Master’s degree from ABET accredited program
  • Knowledge of aircraft systems and avionics sub-systems
  • Knowledge and skills associated with RF circuit design
  • Prior experience with Altium Designer
  • Prior experience in the design of high reliability, safety critical equipment (military, avionics, clinical- medical or similar devices)
