As a Validation and Test Development Engineer you will design automated characterization, validation and test systems that calibrate and verify the performance of high frequency and highresolution mixed signals custom integrated circuits, printed circuit subassemblies, and digital oscilloscopes and probing solutions. The validation and test system design will require hardware and software skills, an understanding of measurement technology, and mathematical analysis skills required to understand the statistical errors on measurements of devices under test. Teledyne LeCroy will be providing training to bring the skills of the successful candidate to the level needed for the work, hence we are looking for a "fast-learner" with a great deal of potential.


  • Develop performance verification hardware and test software to ensure that products meet engineering specifications
  • Assign adequate test limits (not too narrow, but narrow enough to catch what must be caught at the level of testing) for characterization tests, pre-production tests and final product performance tests, be it for scopes, probes, printed circuit assemblies, custom ICs or critical subassemblies
  • Perform analysis of validation and test measurements, with due attention to the metrology of measurement errors of the physical characteristics, to prove product conformance to design specification
  • For the above, develop semi-automated tools for an efficient data analysis of hundreds of thousands of automated measurements
  • Develop calibration strategies and implement calibration routines to insure accuracy of instrumentation products with minimal time lost to calibration
  • Define, develop and maintain a test framework that enables fast implementation of automated tests for new devices/products


  • BSEE or BS Physics
  • 2+ years' experience working (or postgraduate thesis)
  • Some programming experience necessary. Experience coding in C or C++ is desired. Python, Java or similar newer languages are acceptable but some learning of C will be involved
  • Mathematical skills related to statistical analysis necessary
  • Some experience working with automated test environment is desired
  • Basic circuit analysis knowledge
  • Understanding transient analysis in time and frequency domains a plus
  • High Frequency circuit knowledge desirable
  • Good interpersonal, organizational and communication skills
