Testing tends to be done with analog products and embedded systems. Primary Responsibilities: * Evaluate new product proposals for cost of design/cost of manufacture estimates, including capital equipment, process times (including yields, repair and re-test), floor space, and sustaining costs. * In conjunction with marketing and engineering, develop specifications for products/processes that meet VOC/target market requirements but are economically achievable in a production environment. Identify any product requirements that can't be supported by existing technology or exceed the capability of accepted metrology practices and propose counter measures. * Review and evaluate new product designs or changes in existing designs; determine calibration margins, functional and/or environmental test requirements and need for equipment and facilities. Generate test plans. * Define test system requirements, integration, architecture, capability and capacity. Specify and/or design factory test instrumentation; determine make vs. buy options. Demo proposed equipment for spec compliance and capability. •Evaluate competing instruments for optimum price/performance mark. Identify any unique calibration or maintenance requirements for purchased or fabricated equipment. * Develop test suites for design, environmental, system, and production testing. Perform TUR and/or uncertainty analysis and demonstrate process capability. * Develop software for design, environmental, system, and production testing. Perform software testing and validation. * Prepare calibration and test procedures and related documentation. Use design and process expertise to achieve quality improvements/cost savings in manufacturing, field service and support organizations. Propose and coordinate design changes to improve product performance, test yields, and manufacturability. Analyze systematic component failures; recommend alternate components or design changes. * Review and analyze test results. Use available tools, or develop custom tools, to determine: bias, offset, drift, noise and repeatability (standard deviation), process capability, histograms, or any unique data analysis requirements. Monitor progress of tests for validity of test conditions, means of measurement and performance of component or unit in relation to specifications. * Regularly contribute to key NPI technical decisions, technology, process and operations planning * Solve complex technical problems that require the regular use of technical insight, ingenuity and creativity * Develop relations with, and coordinate activities of, operations and sustaining staff. Provide technical assistance and conduct training in the operation and test of new products and systems to factory personnel. Key Competencies: * Competence using high end complex electrical test equipment, such as calibrators & standards, impedance bridges, long scale DMMs, power, spectrum, impedance, and network analyzers, MDOs, etc. * Experience with precision switching designs and PCB circuit layout: component selection, guard crossing for digital isolation, low thermal relay configurations, trace guarding, channel isolation, driven guard, voltage standoff, etc. * Extensive experience with DC and LF electrical parameter metrology. Familiarity with process metrology, SPC, uncertainty and TUR analysis, and accepted metrology practices. * Familiarity with complex rack-and-stack test systems. Experience debugging subtle or esoteric system problems such as common mode interference, thermal voltage offsets, leakage and crosstalk, digital noise, cross-coupling, distortion, isolation, parasitics, dielectric absorption, guarding and grounding, etc. * Experience with object-oriented software programs such as .NET or Labview/Teststand. Experience using DLLs, remote interfaces (GPIB, USB, serial, Ethernet), remote programming of instrumentation, and instrument status registers (OPC, ESR, ESE, ISR, ESER, SRE, SBR, etc.) Familiarity with common interface debugging tools (NI VISA, MAX, etc.). * BS degree in Electrical Engineering with emphasis on analog theory * Minimum 5 years' experience in related field * Dot Net OO experience * NI Labview Teststand * Remote programming of instrumentation * Metrology fundamentals DC and LF * Competence with complex analog instrumentation Fortive Everett WA
