Our client based in Fareham is looking to recruit a Hardware Electronics Engineer on a 12 – 18 month contract.

Summary

Develop and implement safety critical hardware electronic 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.

Essential Job Duties and Responsibilities

Product Hardware Development:

  • To interpret system requirements into clear unambiguous hardware design requirements and to develop Hardware Development Plans to identify workflow.
  • To design, analyse, commission and verify analogue and digital circuits in accordance with defined requirements specifications including cost and reliability targets.
  • To document design activities, ensuring traceability of design to requirements, whilst also ensuring adherence to relevant project, company or regulatory standards and processes.
  • Work collaboratively with systems, safety, software and mechanical engineers to ensure that hardware level requirements have been met and to overcome trade-offs or problems identified in the design.
  • Contribute to the development of system architectures considering alternative concepts and trade studies in order to determine evidence led preferred solutions.
  • Provide support to production during introduction of new products.
  • Provide support for component obsolescence issues.

Product Hardware Verification & Qualification:

  • To plan, generate, perform and validate results of hardware verification plans and procedures.
  • To specify, design, commission and verify equipment test solutions to support hardware verification & qualification activities and production.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering or equivalent.

Field of Study/Area of Experience

  • 3-5 years of experience in Hardware Electronic Engineering

Hardware Electronic design experience is some or all of:

  • Design of micro-processor circuitry
  • Design of digital interface circuitry such as DDR2/DDR3/SPI/I2C/MIPI
  • Design of analogue signal measurement/conditioning circuitry such as amplifiers, filters and signal sampling/conversion
  • Design of low voltage power supplies and power switching techniques
  • Design for EMC/EMI
  • Design for lightning and voltage transient protection

Skills, Knowledge and Abilities General:

  • Ability to drive and manage PCB layout through sub-contract.
  • Experience of keeping engineering documentation up to date and under configuration control.
  • Experience of electronic hardware verification including generation and executing of test procedures using standard proprietary test equipment.
  • Experience of developing high integrity designs, preferably safety critical.
  • Experience and ability to work within hardware development lifecycle processes.
  • Willingness to engineer safety critical products in an industry that is highly regulated and where engineering vigour in valued.
  • Ability to work within a team of engineers from different disciplines.
  • Ability to communicate complex engineering concepts in an understandable manner.
  • Ability to identify solutions to engineering problems using analysis and evidence to draw conclusions and make recommendations
  • Ability to managing multiple tasks to work independently and prioritize duties with minimal supervision, in order to meet deadlines
  • Strong computer skills including proficiency with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and web-browsers.

Desirable

  • Experience using Cadence OrCAD schematic capture, Allegro PCB Editor, pSpice
  • Experience in documenting designs in preparation for formal qualification / certification
  • Experience with TI Hercules family of safety microcontrollers
  • Experience with NXP iMX6 family of microprocessors
  • Experience with designs using MEMS sensors
  • Experience with designs using Optical sensors or Optical displays.
  • Awareness of RTCA DO254 / EUROCAE ED-80
  • Awareness of RTCA DO160 / EUROCAE ED-14
  • Awareness of Avionic data buses such as ARINC-429, MIL-1553, AFDX
  • Awareness of embedded software to facilitate HW/SW integration
  • Awareness of simple firmware to facilitate HW/firmware integration
  • Awareness of lean design techniques

Primary Working Interfaces

The hardware electronics engineer will work to the design lead’s technical direction and the project manager’s priority direction. They will be required to work closely with systems, safety, software and mechanical engineers as well as quality assurance and production.

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.
