Our Electrical Engineering team puts the spark into the full hardware development lifecycle, from concept to production. It takes experts in system architecture definition, design, analysis, prototyping, sourcing & the debugging and validation of layouts or routes to deliver state-of-the-art products for a changing world. We work closely with designers, cross-functional teams within Dell Technologies and suppliers to make sure electronic designs meet a range of requirements, including schedule, feature set, functionality and quality, as well as industry standards.
The responsibilities for this position include the development of leading-edge Enterprise Server, Storage, Notebook, Workstation and Desktop through applied signal integrity theory and concepts. Duties encompass all activities needed to take designs from initial architectural concept through production, including, but not limited to simulation of high speed interfaces in both time and frequency domains to assess feasibility of proposed routing strategies, design and specification of PCB stackup and advanced materials, PCB layout constraint definition and management, electrical validation and correlation. Additional responsibilities include working with strategic suppliers on new technology implementation and solutions, collaborating across multiple teams to proactively identify risks and resolve issues in order to minimize the impact to product delivery and quality.
Work with key silicon and passive component suppliers to obtain information, documentation and models required to enable simulation of assigned interfaces and technologies.
Develop, test and validate simulation models to ensure the accuracy of simulation results through correlation studies.
Perform analysis of electrical designs and simulate viable routing, material, and interconnect solutions to define a 'solution space' and develop design constraints for new high speed interfaces.
Devise optimized simulation strategies necessary to characterize worst case system conditions for high volume manufacturing and environmental variations.
Work with Electrical Engineers, PCB Layout and other Simulation Engineers to develop and ensure appropriate delivery and compliance of recommended layout design constraints.
Develop design and validation guidelines required to successfully implement new technologies and interfaces across a broad range of platforms and development partners across the Dell product portfolio.
Participate in design reviews for platforms being developed internal and external to Dell and provide guidance based on signal integrity rules and best practices.
Lead the development of electrical validation test plans for new technologies and assist in the resolution of signal integrity issues before they impact product delivery and/or quality.
Engage with key technology and strategic suppliers to co-develop platform guidelines and simulation tools and to collaborate on future technology directions and ecosystem challenges associated with high frequency interfaces and materials.
Prefer a candidate with a Bachelors degree in either electrical engineering or computer engineering and 0-2 years professional experience (or a Masters degree and 0-2 years experience) in addition to the following skills:
Thorough understanding of transmission line theory and electromagnetic field theory.
Well versed in the use, theory, interpretation and practical application of a wide range of 2D, 3D, and Power Integrity simulation tools.
Thorough knowledge and use of advanced test and measurement equipment for SI related tasks
Thorough knowledge of analog and digital circuit theory and principles
Strong ability to drive problem-solving strategies for complex problems that involve cross-functional disciplines.
Able to organize and manage multiple projects, setting priorities and working independently under aggressive timelines.
Able to work under aggressive, date-driven schedules.
Strong verbal and written communication skills.
Thorough ability to manage multiple programs and/or areas simultaneously.
Thorough problem solving and analysis skills.
Thorough ability to successfully negotiate and persuade.
Advanced ability in reading and understanding technical data sheets.
Advanced ability to read and understand circuit schematics and/or mechanical drawings.
Able to easily achieve mastery of new tools, languages and operating systems.
Well versed in use of MS-Word Processor, MS-Outlook, MS-Power Point and MS-Excel.
