Are you a person highly motivated and passionate about working in a group that really makes a difference? We are a Hardware Engineering Services team dedicated to providing Apple Engineering the most up-to-date tools and analysis for the development of printed circuit board technology. We are seeking an experienced fabrication engineer to work with Apple PCB designers and electrical engineers to develop creative material stack-up solutions to meet physical and electrical requirements. You will also be responsible for verifying and analyzing circuit boards from all PCB types such as Rigid, Rigid-Flex, Flex, and SIP. You will work with PCB designers during the board verification process and provide knowledgeable feedback relating to existing guidelines and fabrication rules. Are you ready to make a difference!

Key Qualifications

  • Have you been deeply involved in working with engineering colleagues to solve printed circuit board Collaborating with PCB designers and electrical engineering teams every single day requires a deep understanding of all existing printed circuit board technologies and manufacturing processes. You will work with many project teams to resolve material stack-up challenges related to cost, manufacturing and electrical performance. You will be an authority on industry 2D field solvers in conjunction with stack-up software to deliver the material requirements. You will also use your broad knowledge to provide feedback analysis to the designer and project teams during the board verification stage.

Description
- Study PCB design trends and processes, and then evaluate and implement those processes that apply to Apple's core technologies.
- Assist design teams developing complex material stack-ups using PCB Industry CAD models and impedance solvers.
- Perform impedance simulation for edge coupled differential, single ended microstrip, single ended stripline/dual-stripline, and single ended/edge coupled coplanar model calculations.
- Provide design trade-offs for the engineering team during the stack-up development. Generate validated examples of cost effective and design specific models for the teams to review and analyze.
- Collaborate with our circuit board vendor base on complex material requirements.
- Understand and apply Apple's PCB specifications to all circuit board types during the verification process.
- Complete PCB design verification using Industry CAD tools designed for PCB analysis. Produce analysis report defining items that fail existing Apple DFM guidelines or rules. Offer alternative suggestions which will meet the rules but still achieve design intent.
- Respond to daily technical vendor DFM feedback to address issues post design release. Collaborate with Apple engineering teams to discuss and resolve technical issues.

Education & Experience

Typically requires 5-7+ years of related experience.
