a. Digital HW Engineering architecture design and development
b. Analog and Digital small signal circuit analysis and design, schematic capture, PCB layout support, and BOM development.
c. FPGA programmable logic design and simulation/verification using VHDL.
d. Technical documentation development and delivery (Design Reports, Requirements and Interface Documents, Root Cause Analyses, Technical White Papers, etc.)
2. Execute work mentioned above to meet or exceed the established engineering and company process and procedures as well as best design guidelines.
3. Provide impactful levels of leadership, support, and drive to ensure task completion is met by teams and that project successfully meets requirements.
4. Perform assignments requiring appreciable creativity, originality and ingenuity.
5. Consistently provide clear and concise communication of design and development approach or plans to engineering peers, leads, and management.
6. Provide medium to high levels of guidance, mentorship, and leadership to engineering colleagues and associates.
7. Coordinate the activities of associate engineers or technicians assigned to specific Digital HW Engineering projects.
8. Plan and perform digital engineering research or design development assignments, including responsibility for the Digital HW Engineering of portion of a major project or a project of medium to higher levels of complexity.
9. Concisely translate product specifications into usable Digital HW Engineering data/requirements applicable to the particular assignment.
10. Complete high quality work while meeting budget and schedule constraints.
11. Provide medium to high-level analysis and technical review support during gate reviews and both internal and customer design reviews.
12. Support bid and proposal efforts through requirements analysis, conceptual design, and estimation activities.
13. Provide high-level leadership to smaller engineering teams in alignment with vision of Supervisor to execute work to a high quality standard with focus on requirements compliance.
14. Develop presentation packages and present technical design details and relevant project data for upper management and customers during internal and external meetings/reviews.
15. Timely execute work per directions from project engineer or department manager.

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:
1. Five to 10 years plus experience in the design of mixed signal hardware circuits including FPGAs and CPLDs, ADCs and DACs, microprocessor and DSP processor circuits, linear and switching voltage regulators, clock circuits, active and passive filters, op-amp circuits, communication interfaces and protocols (Ethernet, SPI, SERDES, I2C, Manchester Encoding, etc.), and high speed memory circuits.
2. Five to 10 years plus experience with the design, simulation, and test of FPGA based digital programmable logic designs using industry standard design suites (Xilinx Vivado and ISE preferred) and VHDL.
3. Proven and demonstrated experience in the full life cycle of hardware products from concept to production including system architecture, design implementation, and test/verification.
4. Experience with implementation of FPGA algorithms and various digital signal processing components and systems (Digital filters, transforms, multipliers, mathematical operations).
5. Experience with the decomposition, traceability, and verification of digital design requirements (DOORS experience is desired).
6. Proven experience and excellence in the bring-up, debug and troubleshoot, and test of mixed signal circuit boards and hardware/FPGA/software integration.
7. Proven experience in the lab testing hardware circuits using test equipment including oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, power supplies, multimeters, and temperature chambers.
8. Demonstrated understanding of signal integrity concepts and best practices/rules for the layout of mixed signal circuits containing both high frequency and noisy signals.
9. Consistent demonstration of exemplary verbal and written communication skills (particularly in the development of project documentation) and an ability to collaborate in a team environment.
10. Experience in developing small signal digital and analog hardware designs and capturing them using industry standard schematic capture tools (Cadence/ORCAD preferred).
11. Previous team lead experience, can-do attitude, self-starter, team player, multi-tasker, good time management skills, and driver of tasks from cradle to grave.
12. Ability to obtain a security clearance.
13. Experience designing to military specifications is desired.
14. Knowledge of microprocessor architectures, the C programming language, and the embedded software development process a plus.
15. Knowledge of Power Systems, PWM, DC and AC power conversion systems is highly desirable.
16. Knowledge of system on chip (SoC) technologies a plus.
