Electrical Engineer Lead (w/clearance)

job summary:
Randstad Engineering Solutions is looking for qualified Electrical Engineers to join a team dedicated to the development and failure analysis of digital and analog data acquisition systems used in Anti-Submarine Warfare, ship self-defense, acoustic ranges and geophysical exploration products used around the world.

Job Description:

The work pertains primarily to the development of electronic circuits, embedded software, and systems concerned with measuring acoustical wave energy and providing telemetry for purposes such as communication, computation, sensing, control, measurement and navigation.

The team's main activities are the design of electronics circuits as well as extensive use of FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) and associated design and synthesis tools. These include:

-- Design Circuit Card Assemblies (CCA) including a combination of mixed signal technologies consisting of A/D, D/A, Processors, I/O communication and Programmable Logic (FPGA, CPLD) circuits.

-- Develop and edit circuit schematics with OrCad/Altium development tools and perform circuit simulation with PSPICE software.

-- Design Low/Med Complexity Circuit Card Assemblies (CCA) starting from System decomposition and completing through System Integration and Test.

-- Develop the procedures necessary to evaluate design activities and ensure conformance with customer requirements, company standards, and sound engineering practices including quality systems procedures.

-- Provide system test and evaluation support including input to test plans and procedures.

-- Decompose and allocate system and box-level requirements to FPGA specifications.

-- Develop embedded C/C++ code to interface with the FPGA.

The candidate would be focused on the following activities:

-- Design algorithms, VHDL code generation, VHDL simulation, Synthesis and Device Implementation & Constraints, System Integration and Test.

-- Investigate root cause of component failures.

-- Generate related documentation including technical status, forecast technical needs, and make recommendations for appropriate improvements.

-- Review and mitigate component obsolescence.

The candidate should have 6+ years of prior relevant experience and either an acive DoD Secret clearance or the ability to obtain it.

Development Environment: FPGA synthesis and simulation tools / Cadence / OrCAD / Altium / PSPICE

Other: Active DoD security clearance or the ability to obtain it

Communication Skills:

Good communication skills (written, verbal & presentations)

Required Skills:

Knowledge of High Complexity Digital Design Techniques and Devices.

Hardware debugging skills.

Experience in the operation of lab equipment and FPGA Debugging tools.

Experience with complex block and top level simulations of FPGA designs requiring high level transaction-based models.

These would be a plus:

Circuit Card: Cadence for Schematic Entry and to support PWB Layout/Route

FPGA tools: Xilinx ISE, Xilinx Vivado, Microsemi Libero

Good knowledge of embedded C/C++

Travel required? Some

Please consider this exciting opportunity to join a large and growing Engineering Solutions team with the potential of supporting multiple high profile customers on a variety of products using exciting technologies.
