Contract Analogue Design engineer

Agency: Gold Group

Job Location: East Anglia

Specialist area: Engineering

Rate: £30.00 - £50.00 per hour

Duration: 3 - 6 months

Date Posted: 03 May 2010

Ref: 24429/a

A Contract Principal/Senior Analogue design engineer with class D amplifier design experience is required by a leading high technology company based in the Cambridge area. The ideal candidate will be responsible for designing amplifiers up to 100 Mhz. In return, you’ll be offered a salary of £50k - £70k.
Key Responsibilities:
• Design analogue electronic circuits
• Providing guidance on PCB layout related to their designs
• Verification and validation of their designs (a hands on role)
• Advise on manufacturing test relating to their designs
• Ongoing support & maintenance of their designs
The candidate is likely to have the following skills and experience:
. Experience in designing amplifiers up to 100Mhz b/w
. Extensive experience with designing high performance amplifiers using discrete components
. Experience in Class D amplifier design
. Experience in modelling/simulating the design with the view of “proving” the design ahead of prototyping.
. Understand stability and compensation techniques
. Thorough understanding of BJT and MOSFET device characteristics and circuit topologies.
. Understanding of device speed limitations, failure modes and breakdown mechanisms.
. Practical implementation knowledge regarding PCB layout to minimise parasitic effects (the devices we use have the potential to oscillate at microwave frequencies)
. Experience of using test equipment like spectrum & network analysers
. Good hands on bench skills (e.g soldering)
. Practical knowledge of measurement techniques e.g. how to make accurate measurements of amplifier open loop response.
. Good appreciation of potential manufacturing assembly/test problems.
