What you’ll do:
More specifically, and working in close collaboration with other R&D groups (e.g. FPGA, F/W, S/W, optical,etc.), your work will require you to study and understand the new product’s requirements, design and implement circuitry to create optimal product-level solution. You will have to keep yourself up to date with relevant design standards, with design practices, technologies, and with components. Using leading-edge electronic components, you will have to design a variety of digital circuits (including CPU, FPGA, high-speed interfaces, etc.) and analog electronic circuits (including interfaces, converter, DC/DC, AC/DC, etc.), guiding the CAD designer in the physical implementation of the PCB. In collaboration with the Components and Purchasing groups, you will also have to ensure proper management of the Bill of Material and associated Cost of Product. Finally, you will have to create and execute the required test plans for the circuit’s bring-up and qualification, eventually, you will have to assist the various production groups for the transfer of your circuits to the factory for mass production.
