Our client is keen to recruit and experienced Development Engineer to join their team in Swindon
You would be a member of the Engineering Development Team with personal responsibility for the development of electronics hardware, embedded and firmware solutions for brushless dc motors, motorised impellers and their applications that meet the demands of the business.
Your Role
To understand project technical requirements in conjunction with both our internal and external customers, to undertake the detailed electronics design activities required to translate these in to cost effective products and to ensure that robust, reliable technical solutions are implemented and demonstrated as fit for purpose in a design-for-manufacture environment.
Your Objectives
To work collaboratively with the technical teams to develop electronic hardware solutions, performing relevant calculations, associated simulations and tests to deliver robust, innovative designs.
To work collaboratively with the technical teams to develop analogue and digital electronic circuits in order to deliver robust, innovative technical solutions with sound theoretical basis.
To design for EMC and LVD, carrying out relevant product development, testing and debugging.
To work collaboratively with the technical teams to develop firmware in 'C’, assembler or other relevant language in order to deliver robust, innovative technical solutions with sound theoretical basis.
To carry out Field Oriented Control hardware and firmware development, testing and debugging.
To use your skills to maintain clear, concise and accurate documentation for solutions, communicating necessary theoretical principles to technical staff.
