Job Description:

Responsible for the design and development of digital hardware to support radio products.

Determine design approaches and parameters. Analyze electrical requirements to determine feasibility of design within time and cost constraints. Analyze equipment to establish operating data; conducts experimental tests and evaluates results. Propose, lead, evaluate, and develop digital architectures to meet program needs. Design and develop high speed digital systems, and embedded digital architectures. Tasks may include requirements generation, VHDL design, module design, simulations and verification for FPGAs. Support the Design for Manufacturing process and the release of this product into production.

Select components and equipment based on analysis of specifications and reliability. Responsibility may also include review of vendor capability to support development.

Will have design ownership from the definition of requirements through the integration and testing of the completed product, including initial low rate production. Proficiency with test equipment such as oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, and vector signal generators (VSG).


  • Bachelor's Degree and a minimum of 6 years of prior electrical engineering experience, or a Graduate Degree and a minimum of 4 years of prior electrical engineering experience
  • Digital PCB Board design experience interfacing to FPGAs and/or Embedded Processors.
  • Experience with test automation (e.g. LabView) at all levels of the development process (board, integration, unit test)
  • Experience with requirements management tools. (Ex. - DOORS)

Preferred Additional Skills:

  • Proficiency with computer simulation of digital circuitry
  • Application of design considerations for volume production (DFM, DFT)
  • Experience with defect tracking tools. (Ex. - JIRA)
  • Must have a successful track record in planning, executing, and tracking personal task assignments.
  • Experience leading small teams and mentoring other engineers
