• Multiple product development projects to further develop your skills and career

Ideally you will have:
• A hands-on passion for designing both analogue and digital circuits
• A strong understanding of electronic engineering fundamentals
• An excellent academic record with a good university degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering

You might also have experience and skills in (but not essential):
• High speed digital design (for example signal integrity, VHDL)
• Implementing high performance analogue discrete circuits
• Designing products for low power
• Designing products for low cost, high volume manufacturing
• Simulation using Spice as well as RF simulators. e.g. HFSS or Comsol
• Developing embedded C applications for microprocessor platforms
