Job Summary

This position is for an Electrical Engineer to develop digital hardware circuit boards used in high performance communication products, such as software-defined radios and data links. As part of our team, you’ll be exposed to cutting edge technology and have the ability to significantly contribute to the creation of our newest products.

Job Responsibilities

Primary assignments will include use and application of electrical engineering principles and techniques to design, develop, document, verify, support, and troubleshoot digital hardware of low to moderate complexity for airborne and ground communication products. Designs may include the use of FPGA, ARM Processors, and DDR memory components. The selected candidate will work closely with Systems, Software, Mechanical, Environmental Effects, Manufacturing/Operations and Design-to-Cost staff to assure defined requirements are consistently met in all phases of a product’s lifecycle. Electrical Engineers at Rockwell Collins perform activities that span all phases of the hardware development lifecycle, including requirements capture, design, integration, verification, factory transition, and customer interface.

Basic Qualifications

A successful candidate will possess:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering by Spring/Summer 2018.

  • Must be capable of obtaining a U.S. DOD Secret Clearance. U.S. Citizenship is required. Applicants selected will be subject to a government securityinvestigation and must meet eligibility requirements.

  • Experience with digital electronics design principles

  • Some familiarity with the schematic capture process for creation of circuit card designs

  • Strong problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

  • Be able to multi-task and manage through unexpected events.

  • Ability to effectively communicate in a professional manner and produce effective, clear and concise technical documentation

A successful candidate may possess (desiredexperience/skills but not required):

  • Experience with circuit board designs including knowledge of PWB layout and routing rules, & EMC design

  • Knowledge of digitalcircuit design parameters (e.g., throughput, rise time, clock frequencies, propagation delay). Includes knowledge of computer hardware components (e.g., processors, memory, interfaces), and characteristics (e.g., throughput, processing architecture, timing, capacity).

  • Experience with Ethernet, I2C, USB, LVDS, and SERDES bus technologies. Experience with DDR1/2/3 memory interfaces.

  • Design tools experience with schematic capture, requirements capture, signal integrity and timing analysis (ex. DxDesigner, DOORS, and Hyperlynx).

  • Be capable of hand-on troubleshooting using engineering lab equipment.

  • Understanding of Design to Cost (DTC+), Design for Manufacturing (DFM), Design for Test (DFT)
