R&D - Electronics Engineer

You will be working within the R&D team with a view to supporting our range of microscope based instruments which are based around ST 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, most of which have embedded microcontrollers. Software is written in ‘C’ and debugging is from the IAR ARM workbench.

PCB design is also part of the role where we use PADS PCB and Logic for all our surface mount layouts. Boards are then assembled by a 3rd party, although experience of surface mount rework is required.

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.
