Contract Embedded/RF Hardware Engineer (some travel)

Sagetech is developing next generation UAV avionics, again setting world records. We are beginning Rev 0.2 of our new MX series aviation transponder now and need rapid support in embedded design and layout. We prefer a contractor for this role and see this as the beginning of a potentially long term working relationship.

The product will be released in phases, beginning this December. It is a highly miniaturized, full-specification aviation transponder (Mode 3A/C, Mode S, ADS-B In/Out), and variants offer Mode 5 crypto-secure "Identification Friend Foe" functionality. Our products do the same thing as existing avionics, but ours are several factors smaller and lighter. Consider options for the Boeing Insitu ScanEagle UAV, which weighs 30 lbs, to carry a Mode 5 transponder (an expected requirement): Sagetech's MX transponder weighs 5.3 ounces, compared with competitive offerings of 6-10 lbs.

The contract engineering role will involve design of a extremely dense PCB assembly, measuring a couple inches on a side. It's a very intricately integrated assembly, with the aluminum packaging providing basic protection, emi shielding, and thermal heat flow.

The design includes/requires:

* Xilynx 7000 series system on chip

* 1090 MHz, 1030 MHz RF receivers

* 1090MHz, 1030 MHz RF transmitter, high power pulse (500 Watt)

* Several switching power supplies

* Serial communications (RS232, RS422, RS485, MIL-STD 1553, ARINC 429)

Our design is subject to FAA design assurance standards, which include:

* DO-160

* DO-254

Software tools:

* Orcad for schematic capture

* Pads PowerPCB for layout

Embedded hardware design, data and analog. Layout of highly complex, dense PCBs, with good command of high speed design best practices. RF experience desired but not absolutely required.

The work is to be completed independently, with occasional onsite visits (duration usually a week) to Sagetech's White Salmon, WA facility. The project will begin with an onsite visit, and onsite visits will be more frequent in the beginning, until you become acquainted with the team and project. Reasonable travel and living expenses will be reimbursed.
