DSP Systems Engineer (23787)

to £50k DoE + options

DSP, MEMS devices, hardware, high level software, Cambridge

Are you a DSP Systems Engineer seeking an exciting start-up where there is great potential for you to make a major impact on their success?

The challenge is to take the raw high frequency signal from a MEMS device and create a model / algorithm for the device to provide physical, electrical and gravitational information. Your commercial experience will be of great benefit to this outstanding academic team at the University of Cambridge. The company has started field trails but there is still significant design work to complete.

As a DSP Systems Engineer with an excellent technical degree from a world-leading university, you will also be able to offer commercial experience in the following areas:

  • Familiarity with designing signal processing algorithms
  • A solid understanding of high frequency analysis – 10Mhz range
  • Code development for embedded microcontroller and DSP in C
  • Board-level mixed signal electronics design
  • Design experience of low-noise electronics design, assembly, packaging and test
  • PCB prototyping and debugging

In addition any of the following would be beneficial:

  • Understanding of high-temperature environments on electronics design
  • Any experience working with MEMS devices
  • 3D CAD skills for mechanical assemblies
  • Engineering analysis including FMEA and DFMA
  • Code development for interfacing embedded systems to PC (python and C#)
  • Principles of FPGA hardware language design using RTL (VHDL preferred)

This is an excellent opening to work in a small company where the original founders are still involved at the technical level. They are currently utilising Cambridge University facilities with plans to move to their own office next year. They are well funded from several sources including a major player in the oil industry and share options are being offered. There are possibilities to gain customer exposure from time to time with some overseas travel.

Keywords: Signal processing, DSP, MEMS, 10 MHz, hardware interfacing, frequency analysis, modelling, DSP algorithms, high temperature electronics, start-up, gyroscopes, accelerometers, Cambridge
