Performs other duties as assigned.
Position Description The electrical engineer will support the Europa Clipper breadboard Power Control and Distribution Assembly (PCDA) task. The engineer will generate circuit simulations or update existing circuit simulations to released schematics and used these simulations to update/complete reliability analyses. The reliability analysis include the electronic parts stress analysis, single event effects, and worst-case analysis. The engineer will assist in completing the magnetic design for each buck converter in the PCDA, and test plan and test procedure development. The electrical engineer will develop functional block diagrams for each slice in the PCDA. The electrical engineer will also support the PWB completion of the Power Bus Controller (PBC) digital board.
LTSpice Altium: PWB routing of digital/FPGA Excel: reliability analysis ( single event effects, worst-case analysis, parts stress)
The engineer will possess a working knowledge of circuit simulation and purpose of reliability analyses. The engineer must be familiar with EXCEL, WORD, and VISIO. The engineer will have “plug and play” knowledge of PWB routing of digital circuitry including FPGA routing
Space power background Power converters including magnetic design
