Insight Global is seeking a motivated and self-driven Electrical
Design & Test Engineer to join our team in Naperville, IL. This
role is responsible for designing and developing user interface and
sensor electronic assemblies on both flexible and rigid circuit
boards as well as creating test solutions for the same assemblies
in support of production. This person generates schematics, writes
test plans, develops microcontroller firmware, and creates unique
test solutions for transitioning the assembly into a production
Role & Responsibilities:
Design user interface products, such as a capacitive touch,
utilizing a combination of schematic capture and firmware
development tools. Understand capacitive touch user interface
design concepts such as self-capacitance, mutual capacitance,
sliders, wheels, etc.
Understand microcontroller architecture including how to integrate
into a design and utilize timers, interrupts, A/Ds, PWMs, etc.
Write firmware targeted for small microcontrollers. Write and step
through C code using a debugger and document and explain your
software code to others.
Develop test solutions for the production team. These solutions
include programming tests into a Checksum system on our SMT line,
programming a Cirris Systems tester, and designing other custom
Design microcontroller-based test solutions to validate your own
products, or products designed by other engineers.
Assist operations personnel in the design and development of test
solutions throughout the factory including robotic-based test
Debug test solutions directly and provide direction to production
personnel throughout development cycle.
Identify which aspects of design need to be 100% tested on every
assembly. Knowledge of Statistical Process Control (SPC) for
analyzing test solutions.
Understand differences between designing high volume products and
developing a test solution that validates each individual product
and understand statistical data analysis.
Estimate timelines for development work based on requirements and
existing project workload and keep track of time spent on various
Study device specifications for electronic parts and select parts
based on performance and cost trade-offs.
Research new technologies for development of test solutions and
product design; and proposes ideas to advance our capabilities to
stay ahead in the market.
Understand digital and analog circuitry: biasing a transistor,
various methods to drive LEDs, physically interfacing a
microprocessor to other portions of a circuit, ways to protect
circuits from ESD/EMI, etc.
Understand basic serial communication protocols such as I2C, SPI,
UART, and others. Experience using serial protocol validation tools
and oscilloscopes to qualify communication busses.
Control firmware/software releases with revision control using a
software repository system such as GIT.
Check other engineers schematics, board layouts, and fabrication
drawings for completeness and accuracy.
Verify product design. Perform bench level testing of prototypes,
executes design validation (DV) and production validation (PV)
Create technical documents based on project needs such as a
Statement of Work, Schematic, Fabrication Print, Logic Flow
Diagram, Hardware/Software Architecture, Test Plans and
Familiarity with creating Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis
(DFMEA) for a design, including both possible hardware and software
Interface with internal departments (manufacturing, quality, lab,
sales, and marketing) to ensure design objectives are met. Provide
product information, engineering samples and technical advice on
Strong verbal and written communication skills are necessary that
demonstrate the ability to express complex technical concepts
clearly and concisely.
