R&D Electrical Engineer

R&D Electrical Engineer

We are looking for top talent to join our team to innovate and develop new technologies and capabilities for Mitutoyo's dimensional metrology products.  We create concepts and prototypes for both contact and non-contact measuring methods, targeting a range of products from small hand tools up to Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM's), vision machines and other types of stand-alone systems.  With our state-of-the-art lab, our team is able to achieve down to nanometer resolutions and beyond.  This is the perfect position for someone who enjoys a good challenge, is creative, wants to learn new skills, and likes highly varied tasks.

Your responsibilities would include:

  • A primary focus on designing, debugging, testing and documenting discrete board-level mixed signal circuits and/or FPGA implementations as part of a larger project.
  • Interfacing with other project team members of different disciplines to ensure achieving the requirements of the design.
  • Writing detailed documentation including, but not limited to, specifications, presentations, test result reports, and research reports.
  • Occasionally running test systems and analyzing results as needed, in the context of the project.
  • Actively participating in design reviews with fellow team members.
  • Participating in occasional late afternoon net meetings with our colleagues in Japan.

EDUCATION REQUIRED:

BS or higher in Electrical Engineering

EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:

3+ years of industry experience or MS in Electrical Engineering (we will consider candidates who will graduate soon)

SKILLS REQUIRED:

  • Perform board level, mixed signal circuit design and simulation, typically 5V and below.
  • Ability to debug hardware as needed using various diagnostic tools such as oscilloscopes and logic analyzers.
  • Familiarity with FPGA architectures.
  • Readiness to take direction from senior level staff.
  • A willingness to continually learn new skills and concepts, with an ability to handle new and varied work situations with moderate complexity.
  • Have a passion for finding ways to make designs and products better, while at the same time being able to listen to suggestions from others.
  • Great written and oral communication skills, including the ability to document design concepts in detail and clearly explain technology and concepts to non-specialists.
  • Work effectively either independently or in a cross-functional team.
  • Demonstrate initiative and motivation. 
  • A disposition to working with diverse cultures and attitudes.

BENEFICIAL EXPERIENCE/SKILLS:

  • Knowledge of low power circuit design, 1D/2D image detectors, and various types of sensors.
  • Familiarity with microprocessor/microcontroller/DSP architectures.
  • Real-time embedded programming in C/C++ and/or assembly.
  • OrCAD/PSPICE design environment.
  • FPGA development tools (Modelsim, Visual Applets, Intel/Altera Quartus, Xilinx Vivado, etc.)
  • FPGA design with Verilog or SystemVerilog.
  • Communication protocols (USB, SPI, I2C, RS-485, Ethernet, etc.)
  • Math analysis software (MathCAD, MATLAB, Igor, Excel, etc.)
  • System level simulation (Simulink).
  • LabVIEW.
  • Other programming and/or scripting languages (Python, C#, Lua, TCL, etc.)
  • Source control (Microsoft TFS).
  • Knowledge of Japanese language and business practices.
