Spring Engineering has an opening for an experienced EMC Characterization Engineer for our client based in Edinburgh on a Permanent Basis.

You will be part of a team who perform System Level Validation & Characterisation and the support systems, from promotion through to customer platform integration.

The successful candidate shall join an existing team to take responsibility for test development in EMC & ESD testing of all CMOS Imaging products (Image Sensors and Photonics Silicon devices).

Previous experience in EMI / EMC Lab testing essential.


Ensure timely availability of product performance data to designers and customers within the project timescales.
Product Characterization testing is a critical link that occurs during product development and production satisfying the customers (Internal and External) need for product performance. The data provided is of a depth & detail far beyond that provided by Production Test.
Develop and execute automated tests on the RF/EMC lab bench, as per the validation plan during post-silicon phases of the product development, to ensure functionality and performance across a range of EMC tests.
Tests shall normally include the following; Radiated & Conducted Emissions, Radiated & Conducted Immunity (or Susceptibility), Operational ESD Testing, RF Distortion testing, either at Automotive Level testing or bespoke RF environment testing.

The Key Skills & Experience

Working knowledge of testing standards to include one of the following: IEC61967, IEC62132, IEC62215 or equivalent standards
Experience working with HW, SW, Program Managers and other cross functions teams to configure product for EMI evaluations on site and potentially at 3rd party certification labs
Ability to evaluate product performance and debug EMC issues with standard test equipment (e.g., oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, DVMs, EMI Receiver, RF Signal Generators and RF Power Amplifiers).
Excellent communication skills, i.e the ability to verbally report and document test methodologies and report on device test results
Previous experience developing in Python to develop required SW test benches and to post-process measurement data
Self-motivated with excellent analytical skills and a high attention to detail are required as you will need to understand the silicon product and the validation environment (both HW & SW) interactions.

Key Skills

Degree in Physics or Electronic Engineering
Background in the EMC validation particularly of semiconductor products
Use of standard RF Lab Test Equipment expected; Spectrum Analysers, RF Generators, TEM Cell, Striplines, etc…
Previous Application SW Development (Python) beneficial
Previous Data Analysis experience beneficial - SAS JMP, MATLAB, XLS
Develop a deep Product & User Application understanding on ToF products
Previous Performance Characterisation or Silicon level Design Validation of electronic devices
Technical Document Authoring e.g. Datasheets and Application Notes

Useful Knowledge and Experience

Familiar with Schematic Capture
Familiar with PCB design
Previous Darkroom or Photography Skills advantageous
