Sr Signal Integrity Engineer (Remote)

At TE, you will unleash your potential working with people from diverse backgrounds and industries to create a safer, sustainable and more connected world. 

Job Overview

As a Signal Integrity Engineer for TE Connectivity you will focus on the electrical design, simulation, and verification-validation testing of high speed products in the connector and/or cable assembly, radio system industry — targeting high speed communications and connectivity within data centers and wireless infrastructure. You will be expected to independently work on projects in the areas of signal integrity for product and system design including modeling, simulation, testing and circuit board layout. You will work collaboratively within a broader cross functional team of mechanical, manufacturing, & operations to execute leading edge products designs. You will be the subject matter expert for the signal integrity performance of a product/platform beginning with the initial analysis through prototype fabrication & evaluation, and production verification testing. You will tackle challenging design problems and utilize simulation tools to guide complex designs toward success.

What your background should look like:

 

Responsibilities:

  • Subject matter expert in signal integrity design, simulation and validation activities throughproduct development cycles
  • Establishing signal integrity design performance/functional requirements for new products
  • Performing signal integrity simulations for multiple high-speed standards on each product.
  • This includes determining the correct simulation methodology and setup to use, as well as agood understanding of the criteria for each interface.
  • Performing PCB design schematic and layout reviews
  • Creating actionable recommendations based upon design reviews and simulation results
  • Guiding connector design and component qualifications from a signal integrity standpoint.
  • Making data driven decisions about the product functionality and areas for improvement.
  • Participates in determining objectives and approaches to assignment.
  • Works under general direction.
  • Exercises discretion and independent judgement.
  • Collaborates with other colleagues and peers.
  • May coach and train other employees.

 

Skills, Experience & Education:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Master’s degree preferred
  • Minimum of 5 years of work experience in a signal integrity engineering role
  • Experience with interconnect design or experience with connector &/or cable/cable assembly design (high speed twin ax cables, direct attach copper (DAC) cables), and/or RF antenna, RF sub-system
  • Signal integrity analysis tools (Agilent ADS, Ansys HFSS)
  • A solid understanding of electromagnetic theory and electrical circuit behavior
  • Strong analytical capabilities to interpret simulation and lab data to identify issues and provide solutions to fix identified problem.
  • Familiarity with printed circuit board design, fabrication and assembly.
  • Experience in project leadership, especially as it applies across design, development &manufacturing teams
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to work in a global environment – able to accommodate varying time zones, fluent in English (verbal/written), able to collaborate with individuals across geographies
  • Individual must be highly motivated, a quick learner, and able to work independently

 

Nice to Have:

  • Six Sigma methodologies or other strong data analytics background a PLUS!
  • Printed circuit board design, fabrication and assembly (Altium, AutoCAD)
  • Test equipment (oscilloscope, vector network analyzer, BERT)
  • Communication systems (high-speed servers, switches, routers, storage)
  • Signal conditioning techniques (equalization, amplification)
  • Connector and cable assembly, antenna, and RF hardware (RF interface to baseband)design
  • Direct customer design and support experience
  • Application and test knowledge of high-speed devices and equalization techniques
  • Design experience with high-speed servers, switches, routers, storage, antenna, RF frontend or similar systems
  • Proficient in Altium
