Space Analogue Hardware Design Engineer

Company Details

Growing Through Innovation

The Analogue Hardware Design Engineer is responsible to design hardware for space applications, in accordance with customer requirements and applicable standards (such as ECSS), supported by analysis (for instance PSA, WCA, FMEA, thermal-structure, etc). The design activity has to be conducted in a multidisciplinary team in a scenario where requirements are all closely related to each other and technical compromises have to be readily identified.

RESPONSABILITIES

  • Design hardware, define Bill of Material for space applications in accordance to customer requirements, internal/external standards;
  • Conduct electrical analysis to support the designing phase and support other analysis such as thermal-structural;
  • Conduct functional tests at board or system level;
  • Writing technical documentation;

REQUIREMENTS

  • Master’s degree in electronic engineering / physics;
  • Good knowledge of English;
  • Experience in analogue and/or power electronics, specifically in one of the following activities: front-end electronics for sensors (such as thermistor, thermocouples, position sensors, etc.);
    driving electronics (such as driver for step motors, hold/release mechanism, etc.);DC/DC converter design;
  • Power Supply System design (such as power conditioning and distribution unit);
    interfaces with Spacecraft subsystems, hardware design with digital components (such as microcontroller, FPGA, ADC, DAC, etc.);
  • FMEA/PSA/WCA analysis, debug and test on at least engineering model capability;
  • Knowledge on design methodologies for space applications (design documentation, design analysis, etc.) and ECSS standards is preferred;
  • Knowledge of schematic/simulation tools such as Orcad/Spice (or similar).

Preferred:

  • Knowledge of instrumentation for laboratory testing;
  • Experience with debug and test of analog boards;
  • Knowledge on design methodologies for space applications (design documentation, design analysis, etc.) and ECSS standards is preferred;
  • Knowledge in measurement of analogue and mixed signal boards;
  • Knowledge in feedback control systems.
