Teledyne e2V Space Imaging

Company Overview

Teledyne e2v is a global leader in specialised components and subsystems for innovative solutions in medical, science, aerospace, defence and industrial applications.

 

Working with us will enable you to develop and gain experience in the ideas that are behind some of the most advanced technologies in the world. You will also get a chance to work alongside highly experienced engineers, technicians and scientists.

Teledyne e2v provides high performance CCD and CMOS sensors for space science, earth observation, astronomy and high energy physics applications.  CCD sensors are designed, fabricated, post-processed, packaged and tested in our facilities in Chelmsford (UK) and Grenoble (France). 

 

Building on its track record of supply to more than 150 high profile space missions, Teledyne e2v is now working on several large-scale, multi-year projects that are significantly increasing the demand level on its operations.  In recent years, Teledyne e2v has also secured contracts to deliver solutions at a focal plane level, including mechanical assembly, cryogenics and proximity electronics.

 

Our products do many things including saving people’s lives by finding and treating cancer, helping map our planet and the universe and freezing the atom down to 0 Kelvin.

 

With a long and enviable history of technical and scientific innovation, Teledyne e2v is always working at the forefront of technology.

 

Position Summary and Responsibilities

This opportunity within the electronics and embedded software team is for an enthusiastic and proactive contract Electronics / FPGA Engineer to support the design and development of Interface Electronics required to support Testing and operation of our current and next generation high speed Imaging Sensors. This includes Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs), CMOS image detectors and associated Read out ICs (ROICs). 

 

You will work in cross-functional teams to ensure our device interface capability is maintained at the cutting edge and aligned with our development roadmaps. Doing so will require acquiring an intimate knowledge of how our current and new devices operate along with the practical ability to write FPGA code and support PCB design, including schematic entry.

 

Existing core FPGA designs are typically based on Xilinx 7 series and UltraScale devices programmed using VHDL with Xilinx Vivado design tools. Schematic design of PCBs is typically CadStar but Cadence Sigrity design and modelling tools are also used to analyse signal integrity.

 

Qualifications

To be successful in this role, you will need:

  • Extensive experience of FPGA design - VHDL using Xilinx Vivado. 
  • Extensice knowledge and experience of Electronics design including analogue, digital and mixed-signal.
  • Use of common electronics software tools (Cadstar, Autocad (PCB) SPICE and Multsim)
  • Extensive experience of PCB design, fabrication, assembly and debugging
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Capable of creating comprehensive documentation
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team

 

Useful Experience/Competencies:

  • Imaging handling and processing
  • High speed (gigabit) data transfer
  • DDR3/4 memory
  • FPGA design techniques for high reliability (e.g. radiation tolerance)
  • Electronics design for space and radiation tolerance
  • Use of Windchill PLM Software
  • Use of Cadence Sigrity and associated plug ins.
  • SVN Configuration Control
  • Artificial Intelligence for image processing
