Hardware Engineer


My client is a leading player in the Avionics Engineering Industry and design and manufacture cutting edge technology for Commercial and Military Applications.

The Hardware engineer will develop and implement safety critical hardware solutions to meet programme requirements across the whole development lifecycle in accordance with customer requirements, legislation, human factors and business needs.

Be responsible for the control of own work to meet agreed technical, quality, process, cost and schedule requirements.

Hardware engineers are required to work across the full development lifecycle although frequently they may only address part of the lifecycle on any one project due to process requirements for independence across design and verification activity.

Specific Responsibilities:
-To interpret system requirements into clear unambiguous hardware design requirements and to rationalise Hardware Development Plans to identify workflow
-Documenting design activities, ensuring traceability of design to requirements, whilst also ensuring adherence to relevant project, company or regulatory standards
-To design, analyse, commission and verify analogue and digital circuits in accordance with defined requirements specifications including cost and reliability targets
-To plan and manage hardware qualification activities and specify, design, commission and verify equipment test solutions

Key skills and competencies required:
-Bachelors degree in Electronic Engineering or equivalent
-Electronic hardware design with solid post qualification experience in some or all of:
-Design of micro-processor circuitry
-Design of digital interface circuitry (eg UART, SPI/I2C, DDR2/DDR3, MIPI, level translation, differential signalling)
-Design of analogue circuitry (eg amplifiers, filters and signal sampling)
-Design for EMC and/or lightning protection
-Low voltage power supply and/or power switching techniques
-Ability to drive and manage PCB layout through sub-contract
-Experience of keeping engineering documentation up to date and under configuration control
-Experience of developing high integrity designs, preferably safety critical.
-Experience of hardware/software integration.
-Experience of working (and tracking/reporting) to cost and timescale constraints.

Desirable Skills
-Awareness of RTCA/DO254.
-Awareness of RTCA/DO160 or equivalent.
-Experience using Cadence OrCAD schematic capture, Allegro PCB Editor, LT Spice, pSpice.
-Experience in documenting designs in preparation for formal qualification / certification.
-Experience with TI Hercules (TMS570) family of micro-controllers.
-Experience with NXP i.MX 6 series of processors.
-Experience of design for manufacture.
-Experience of high speed design techniques and associated signal integrity / timing analysis.
