A trusted partner. A national resource. A leader in national security space. We are THE Aerospace Corporation. A team that takes pride in our readiness to solve some of the most complex technical challenges in existence. With challenges spanning clandestine to commercial, you'll have the unique opportunity to work on projects that are literally evolving our nations space and launch capabilities. We all share a common passion and aspiration : to serve a mission much bigger than ourselves. When you join our team, you'll be part of a rare collection of thought leaders and game:changing innovators. Are you ready to launch your career?
Responsibilities 13;
The Space Instrumentation Department builds satellite and ground:based instruments and small satellite platforms to characterize space phenomenology and life:limiting and performance:limiting impacts to satellite systems along with potential new technologies. The department supports a broad cross:section of the Corporation in design, assembly, test, and characterization of electro:mechanical systems which involve particle detectors, lasers and associated communications, RF communications, high speed focal plane arrays, satellite avionics, mechanisms, optical assemblies, electronics packaging, and test equipment. The successful applicant will contribute by performing tasks including electronic systems architecture design, schematic capture, electronics parts selection and derating, SPICE modeling, embedded software and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) design and simulation, printed circuit board layout oversight for technician staff, development of fabrication instructions and design review materials, circuit and system testing, and development of Windows PC readout and data archival tools. The position offers the opportunity for a creative individual to innovate in a fast:paced instrument development environment where direct access to and mentoring by senior staff are provided to accelerate the learning process.

Key Functions
:Develop architectures for scientific instruments and associated ground test equipment including digital, analog, and power systems
:Develop schematics for circuit board assemblies utilizing embedded software (microprocessors and microcontrollers) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) where appropriate
:Perform SPICE modeling to validate analog circuit performance prior to build
:Design, test, and debug embedded microcontroller code
:Design, simulate, test, and debug embedded FPGA code
:Select parts for designs and perform de:rating analysis per NASA EEE:INST:002
:Develop parts lists for board assemblies and fabrication instructions for assembly staff
:Perform laboratory trouble:shooting of board assemblies using laboratory test equipment
:Develop test plans and verification cross reference documents
:Develop Users Guides for deliverable hardware items
:Develop Interface Control Documents (IDCs) for multifaceted programs

Qualifications 13;
:BS or higher in Electrical Engineering or a related field
:Must have a minimum of 2 years of electrical engineering design experience from industry; coursework may qualify depending on relevancy
:Experience with schematic capture to include board design, external interfaces, and transfer to layout tools
:Experience developing Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) using VHDL or Verilog design languages and tools
:Experience with SPICE for analog circuit simulation
:Experience developing embedded software for microcontrollers, microprocessors, or embedded IP cores
:Experience debugging moderate to complex circuit assemblies
:Experience working in a diverse team setting where multiple engineering disciplines (mechanical, electrical, software) are involved
:Experience developing system requirements, design review presentations, and fabrication and test instructions
