Embedded Electronics Design Engineer
A privately-owned scientific instrument company designing and manufacturing a range of instrumentation are looking for an Electronics Design Engineer to join their growing R&D team near Epsom. Their products are used for research in many universities and by some of the world’s most innovative scientific organisations.
A candidate with a Degree in an electronic discipline with at least three years’ experience
You will be working within the R&D team with a view to supporting our range of microscope-based instruments which are based around STM32 Arm microcontrollers.
A knowledge of small signal processing is essential, as we use a range of low output sensors in the design of new prototype instruments many of which have temperature and motor control. A variety of additional integrated circuits are used for motors, temperature, gas measurement etc
The software is written in ‘C’ with debugging using the IAR ARM workbench.
With each new design there will be a requirement to consider EMC and LVD and to gather documentation to support the submission to an external test house.
This role is varied but has the freedom for an individual to see the design from inception through to production with a high degree of individual input.
Electronic design & Development
Embedded controller development using ‘C’ programming closely coupled to the electronics.
Hardware & software testing
First point of R&D contact for electronics technical support
Internal product support
OEM part approval
Designing new products using the STM32 series of microcontrollers.
Programming in C using the IAR Workbench of complex motor devices and A/D converters.
Gathering EMC/LVD documentation for a design and overseeing the testing and approvals at an external test house
