Analog Design Engineer
Analog Design Engineer
12+ month contract
*Must be willing to obtain a DoD Clearance*
In this position you will work closely with multi-disciplinary teams designing, developing, and verifying electronics for state-of-the-art sensors and actuators used in a wide array of applications.
These projects are executed with a heavy emphasis on high performance, low size, weight, and power consumption.
As a senior member of the Instrumentation, Analog, & Power Electronics Group you will help shape hardware architectures and lead electronics development activities by applying sound engineering and project management principles.
Experience in the design and development of high precision mixed signal control circuitry and systems.
Exceptional candidates with a BSEE and 7+ years related experience will also be considered.
Knowledge of the following areas: low-noise amplification including charge amplifiers, analog-digital conversion including sigma-delta modulators, methods of synchronous detection, analog and digital signal processing, oscillators, phase-locked loops, synchronous motors, motor drive circuits.
Experience in system integration and debugging of complex sensor/actuator systems.
Ability to perform circuit simulation using Spice or variants and system modeling and analysis using MATLAB, Simulink, or other comparable tools.
Previous experience working for Defense/Aerospace companies.
Previous experience in design for harsh physical and electromagnetic environments as embodied in common commercial and military standards such as Mil-STD-461, CISPR 22, MIL-STD-810, etc.
System grounding/shielding and EMI mitigation techniques for complex sensor/actuator systems, which may include high frequency, switched-mode power electronics, RF circuitry, and high speed digital electronics located in close physical proximity with precision sensors & actuators.
Expert level knowledge of device characteristics such as MOSFETs, IGBTs, BJTs, JFETs, diodes, various capacitor families, etc.
Possess an understanding of and experience with inertial instruments, particularly MEMS based and fiber-optic gyroscopes and accelerometers, as well as traditional electro-mechanical gyroscopes and accelerometers.
