Raytheon Technologies Electrical Engineer - Digital Power Design in Tucson, Arizona
At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers.
The Low Voltage Power Products (LVPP) Department supports key Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) products, by providing mission-critical designs relating to power conversion, motor controls, flight termination systems, telemetry, and other analog domains.
We are looking for junior to mid-level engineers who have digital power converter design experience to help design robust power systems for important national defense products.
Responsibilities to Anticipate:
Design, analyze, simulate, and test power conversion circuitry potentially utilizing any standard power conversion topologies (non-isolated and isolated) with the main emphasis on board mounted power end use applications.
Architect circuit card-level power schemes and develop related requirements.
Guide Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) personnel through PWB layout of power circuitry and technical drawing creation.
Work to further our department’s mastery of digital power conversion concepts, and help develop related best practices.
Perform design work within the bounds of a given schedule, and sometimes define the schedule.
Present reviews of technical data to program leadership and technical staff, and guide junior engineers in honing this skill.
Qualifications You Must Have:
Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering
2+ years of relevant experience
Design and analysis experience with digital power converter design. This includes familiarity with embedded systems architecture and firmware development for digitally controlled power supplies.
Design and analysis experience with linear converters, and one or more of the following non-isolated converter topologies: buck, boost, buck-boost.
Robust conceptual familiarity (professional experience preferred) with any two of the following isolated converter topologies: flyback, half-bridge, full-bridge, forward, push-pull. Conceptual familiarity and experience must include stability.
Simulation and test experience with one or more of the following non-isolated converter topologies: buck, boost, buck-boost.
Conceptual familiarity (professional experience preferred) with transformer and inductor design considerations in power electronics circuits.
Design and analysis experience with analog electronics, including at least two of the following: FET/BJT logic level, op-amp, high/low/bandpass filters, clock/data termination, and comparator circuits.
The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance
Qualifications We Value:
Experience guiding Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) personnel through PWB layout of power circuitry and technical drawing creation.
