Microwave Innovations, Inc.
Microwave Innovations is seeking an experienced Digital Design / DSP Engineer to provide design support for products used in wireless telemetry for Defense and Space applications.
Microwave Innovations is an industry leader in flight vehicle transmitters and receivers used to transmit telemetry and command/control between the vehicle and the ground monitoring systems used in R&D and flight launch. These products offer our customers high reliability under some of the most extreme operating environments, with high efficiency, in small form factors.
The ideal engineering candidate should have experience in FPGA and DSP related design, test, and production support of modern digital implementations of transmitter and receiver components and systems. The ideal candidate should also have experience in Verilog/VHDL and HDL design, programming languages such as Assembly and C, design analysis tools such as Matlab/Simulink, Synopsys and ModelSim. As well, it is desired that the candidate possesses knowledge of digital modulations such as Pulse Coded - Frequency Modulation (PCM/FM), Multi-Level Frequency Shift Keying (M-FSK), and various Phase-Shift Keyed (PSK) modulations such as Binary/Quaternary Phase Shift (BPSK/QPSK), Shaped/Offset QPSK and 8-PSK. Knowledge of Error Coding/Correction schemes and algorithms, such as Convolutional and Low-Density Parity Check, is also highly desired.
Design requirements will include clean-sheet designs, design trade-off studies, support of existing product designs, as well as debugging and troubleshooting of existing designs. Other engineering tasks will include PCB design process support, Bill of Material generation, production documentation support, test equipment selection and assisting in test system design, planning, monitoring, support and test data validation reviews.
The engineering candidate is expected to possess excellent communication skills and a strong teamwork approach. The candidate will be required to work with remotely located design resources and maintain design processes and schedules as part of the daily mix of engineering tasks. It is expected that the candidate can work with minimal oversight, is an independent problem solver and can prepare test and progress reports in an organized and reliable manner.
Education requirements are BSEE/MSEE in addition to a minimum of 5 years of work experience. (Equivalent work experience in Aerospace and Defense related programs will be considered.) Minimal travel may be required.
Employment Type: Full Time
Years Experience: 5 - 10 years
