Reports To:                            Director of Engineering

POSITION DESCRIPTION:

This position is within the Engineering Department at SRI and as such the main responsibilities are related to performing all necessary engineering tasks related to Design and Development of new or modified electronic equipment and systems related to SRI product line as a whole.   Specific SRI product functions of interest associated with this position provide modulation/demodulation, coding/decoding, and general digital signal processing and communications functions. The position may also require providing skilled engineering support as needed for manufacturing, production and repairs of new or existing SRI products.

TYPICAL DUTIES:

The following list provides a sample of tasks typically performed by individual in this position.  These tasks relate to new Engineering Development efforts as well as supporting existing SRI products.

    • Specifications and Requirements Evaluations.
    • Propose solutions and design approaches to meet the requirements and design goals.
    • Component research, including specifications, design applicability, price & availability.
    • Time, material, cost and schedule estimations for assigned projects.
    • Systems design analysis and performance budget calculations.
    • Circuit design cost / power / performance / size analysis and trade-offs.
    • Generate design documentation such as block diagrams, schematics, assembly drawings, bill of materials, fabrication detail drawings, cable diagrams, etc.
    • Provide inputs for customer documentation, including O&M Manuals and Test Procedures & Reports
    • Oversight of PC Board layout and generation.
    • PLD & FPGA firmware development.
    • Test, debug and data collection for the equipment under development.
    • Suggest assembly procedures and test fixtures for ease of manufacturing & testing
    • Equipment setup for PCB/Equipment test and debug.
    • Generate “Corrective Action Reports (CAR)” for equipment and documentation as needed.
    • Assist with debug, repair and retest of equipment returned from customers for repairs.
    • Provide technical sales support.
    • Provide customer technical support, via phone or on-site, upon Supervisor approval.

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & ABILITIES:

  • Sound knowledge of electronics engineering principles and theories as it applies to both Analog and Digital circuitry typically incorporated in SRI products.
  • Sound knowledge of the methods, materials, tools, equipment & practices related to the general electronic equipment Design and Development work.
  • Detailed knowledge of engineering CAD tools (OrCad Schematic Capture, etc) as well as other Analysis and Simulation tools.
  • Detailed knowledge of Programmable Logic development tools for PLDs and FPGA’s (Xilinx based tools).
  • Knowledge of HDL such as Verilog and VHDL for PLD & FPGA developments
  • Working knowledge of software and firmware principles
  • Proficiency in the use of engineering test equipment such as Oscilloscope, Spectrum Analyzer, Signal/Function Generators, Emulators, PROM Programmers, etc…
  • Skill to understand & work from drawings, schematics and verbal/written instructions.  Computer generated or manually generated.
  • Skill to understand 3rd party components and manufactured equipment specifications.
  • Able to correlate collected test data, recognize discrepancies and suggest corrective actions.
  • Able to follow written as well as oral instructions.
  • Able to maintain detailed design records for documentation purposes as well as generate test procedures and test reports.  Follow procedures and guidelines established for documents and equipment configurations.
  • Able to provide sound engineering judgments when encountered with conflicting and/or unconventional design requirements.
  • Able to work with minimum direct supervision.
  • Able to coordinate and maintain priorities and schedules of multiple task assignments.
  • Able to work individually as well as in a development team.
  • Able to communicate effectively.
  • Able to coordinate and monitor activities of other team members such as Junior Engineers, Technicians, Assemblers, Interns as well as others providing technical and administrative support to active projects.
  • Able to recognize areas of company sensitive technology and provide for the protection of said technology from disclosure to outside competitors.

TRAINING & EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and/or related field and a minimum of five (5) years of experience in Design, Development and Fabrication of Digital circuitry. 
  • Additional experience directly applicable to the position may be substituted, upon SRI approval, for the Bachelor’s degree requirement.
  • Technical training and experience with the following areas of technology:
  • High speed digital logic design, including FPGA, DSP, and general purpose discrete digital logic, as well as analog to digital and digital to analog transitions interfaces.
  • HDL Programming of communications algorithms, including high speed/parallel processing of modulation/demodulation, coding/decoding, filtering, and general signal processing.
  • User I/O Interfaces including Ethernet, typical interface busses (PCI, VME, …), and general purpose serial and parallel I/O.

NOTE:


This description is intended to provide guidelines for requirements, duties and responsibilities for the above mentioned position.  The nature of SRI business, products and customers will often generate situation and requirements that are not defined in this description.  Person(s) functioning in this position and having the experience, knowledge and skills should be able to adapt to changing situations demanded by unforeseen requirements.
