Electrical Engineer II Job Description

Electrical Engineer II


The Electrical Engineer, will utilize various Hardware Development Engineering Design Automation (EDA) tools, including, but not limited to, schematic capture, circuit simulation and analysis, CAD tools, and PLD development tools, to define and document design elements and artifacts.

The Electrical Engineer will utilize various Software/Firmware IDE, including but not limited to, Code Composer, NetBeans, and Lattice Diamond.

Products are typically microcontroller/PLD based Instrumentation and Control (I&C) of analog and digital interfaces.

Essential Functions

  • Provide technical leadership to a cross functional Engineering team in the design, development, prototype and test of new products that meet requirements, within constraints of allocated budget and schedule.
  • Generate system block diagrams, schematics, design description documentation, along with any additional Engineering design elements and artifacts required to thoroughly and adequately document the new product development.
  • Demonstrate design compliance by analysis using a combination of hand calculations, circuit simulation tools such as PSPICE, and PLD simulation tools.
  • Review Design Specifications to understand customer requirements, and support Sales in preparing proposals in response to prospective customer RFQs/RFPs.
  • Identify areas of opportunity and provide suggestions on how to improve the efficiency of the Engineering design processes.
  • Provide mentoring to less experienced designers and engineers on products, processes, and tools.
  • Support Production organization in resolving issues related to the manufacture of new and existing products.
  • Generate product Bills of Materials, execute Engineering Change Requests, and enter into the ERP system (Visual Manufacturing).

Qualifications (Experience, Education, Training, etc.):
Minimum Requirements

  • BSEE and 5+ years of product design experience with electrical or electro-mechanical systems.
  • Experience in the use of schematic capture, circuit simulation, and other design software.

Desired/Preferred (Not Required)

  • Experience in the hardware design and development of microcontroller based embedded control systems, as implemented in instrumentation and control applications.
  • Experience in the software design and development of microcontroller based embedded control systems, primarily using ANSI C, and Java.
  • Experience in the development of analog I/O interfaces, including A/D and D/A interfaces required to interface analog input/s to embedded processor and/or PLD.
  • Experience in the selection and programming of PLD devices, using VHDL.
  • Experience in design for Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) mitigation, especially as it relates to MIL-DTL-461 compliance.
  • Experience working with 480 VAC, 3-phase power systems.
  • Knowledge of industry specifications including NEMA, UL, and MIL specs and standards.
  • Experience in technical leadership of cross-functional design teams.
  • Experience with designing for manufacturability, reliability, and serviceability.
  • Effective communication and interpersonal skills.
