Our client sells their products to various markets worldwide, many used within aerospace, defence and telecommunications industry. They design, develop and manufacture in-house using leading-edge microprocessors and peripheral components. Due to expansion they are looking to recruit a Junior Engineer to design and develop thermal solutions for both convection and conduction cooled products. The ideal candidate would be qualified to degree level and be able to demonstrate an ability to learn quickly.
Provide key design inputs to the electronics hardware team
Be involved in the verification stages of product development, as well as providing on-going support to the design teams
Design, develop and test thermal solutions for both convection and conduction cooled products.
Liaise with the hardware and PCB design engineers to agree optimal layout and construction of the boards.
Simulate and analyse thermal performance of the products and implement any necessary corrections.
Thermal and mechanical testing of new products and components.
Develop and improve mechanical and thermal design procedures and practises.
Maintaining awareness of new technologies.
Degree in a relevant discipline previous design and analysis experience in an industrial environment is not required.
Must be able to demonstrate an ability to learn quickly.
An understanding of the principles behind designing thermal solutions for both convection cooled and conduction cooled electronic products is preferred.
Thermal simulation using Flotherm or Flotherm XT or similar product would be desirable.
Analysis of thermal characteristics at component level in excess of 40W, and at board level in excess of 60W ideal.
Mechanical design skills, ideally using SolidWorks, for creating or at least modifying solid model designs for heat sinks and other items.
Experience of following a thermal design process.
An appreciation of general production machining processes.
In addition to technical skills, the candidate must be independent and self-motivated but also be able to interact with other engineers both locally and overseas.
