Role: Senior RF/ Analogue Hardware Engineer
Location: London
Salary: 50,000 - 65,000

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Analogue/RF Hardware Engineer to complement the existing design team playing a significant part in the product development.

Technical Responsibilities:

*As a member of the hardware development team, your role will be to design, verify, commission and productise board-level hardware designs.
*You will take a lead role in developing and strengthening the existing engineering team with a strong background in Analogue and RF electronic circuit design to arrive at a level of excellence for product development, delivery and cost-effective PCB designs.
*You will take ownership of hardware designs from requirements specifications, generating hardware specifications, schematic entry though to PCB layout, fabrication, commissioning, verification and integration into systems.
*Collaborating with the other members of the hardware, software, systems and mechanical teams to ensure effective support of the existing development programmes and Antenna Systems.
*Performing design calculations and RF/Analogue simulations using industry standard tools in order to estimate performance, identify high-risk areas and ensure reliable designs.
*Support product design, software integration, validation and handover to production with other Engineering team members.
*Ensure the products are designed for EMC, Environmental and other regulatory approvals and meet the requirements for volume manufacturing (DFT/DFM).

Qualifications & Skills:

*A good first or upper 2nd Class degree (BEng/MEng) in Electronic/Electrical Engineering from a leading University.
*At least 5 years' experience of complex Analogue and RF circuit design with a proven track record in the data communications or aerospace industries in a product development environment.
*Strong technical knowledge of Analogue and RF circuit design techniques from the specification, design and verification phases through to systems integration and manufacture.
*Be able to demonstrate significant experience in the design and characterisation of mixed-signal (Analogue/Digital/RF) multi-layer PCB designs and the associated debug and integration issues.
*Experienced in the layout of high-speed multi-layer PCBs including micro-via technology, stackup constraints and controlled impedance traces and design of impedance matching circuits.
*Highly capable in the design, analysis and characterisation of circuits and systems involving multiple PLLs, frequency synthesizers, NCOs, Modulators, De-Modulators, discrete filters, rat-races and integrating them into board-level designs. Understanding of key performance parameters.
*Design, analysis and layout of point of load power supply design. Familiarity with simulation tools & test methods for transient analysis, loop stability and frequency response analysis.
*Familiarity with schematic capture tools such as Altium Designer and industry standard simulation tools such as TI-SPICE, HSPICE for analogue simulations.
*Ability to liaise with and manage PCB layout engineers, fabricators and assembly houses.
*Skilled at developing and implementing test plans and procedures for the testing of RF and mixed signal based products.
*Conversant with product design for EMC. DFM/DFT for volume manufacture.
*Competent practical experience in the use of test equipment such as scopes, spectrum analysers, PNAs, VNAs, signal generators, power meters.
*Accurate and methodical. Familiarity with current best practise in the industry.

*A good understanding of the complete product development process preferably for high-reliability environments, namely aerospace, marine or automotive products.
*Knowledge of L-Band Modem circuit design would be a distinct advantage.
*Knowledge of the product approvals process to meet CE, EN and the relevant product approvals (emissions, susceptibility, environmental) for the Aero (DO-160G) and marine markets.
*The ability to analyse the trade-offs between performance, manufacturability, cost and user experience.
Good practical skills in electronics, soldering and mechanical assembly skills.


*Competitive salary
*Bonus scheme
*Contributory pension
*25 days holiday (plus recognised public holidays) and holiday purchase scheme
*Flexible working
*Season ticket loan
*Cycle to work scheme
