RF Design Engineer - £75 per hour inside ir35 - 6 months (extensions highly likely) - Hertfordshire - hybrid working (2 - 3 days onsite) - SC cleared project - Sector: Defence & Aerospace

Yolk Requirement are searching for a RF Design Engineer to work with one of the world's leading aerospace and defence clients pushing the boundaries of the industry.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a talented team to develop high speed circuits. This requires an engineer with broad skills in mixed-signal electronic design with an appreciation of radar systems and also good understanding of programmable devices (FPGAs/CPLDs).


  • Design and development of analogue & high-speed digital circuits which will be used in multimode aerospace applications.
  • Perform development test and integration activities on circuits and sub-assemblies
  • Produce and maintain test documentation associated with the hardware, including specifications, development test schedules and test result sheets.
  • Interact with internal customers and suppliers to understand circuit design requirements, volume constraints and environmental specifications so that the final design is compliant with the overall requirements.
  • Oversee the transition of development hardware into series production, including robustness testing and qualification testing.
  • Perform technical investigations to provide data for problem assessment, design improvements and support development of solutions to technical issues.

Core Skills:

  • Analogue & High-speed Digital Circuit Design
  • Must hold a current SC security clearance.
  • Design, Simulation & Layout using Zuken
  • FPGA/CPLD Circuit Design and Simulation using Xilinx ISE, Vivado, Libero, and others
  • Perform design proving test and trials in laboratory
  • Diagnose hardware problems using various methods; eg visual inspection, signal/data analysis in design
  • Knowledge of mixed signal board techniques
  • Appreciation of mechanical design & module packaging
  • Familiar with design tools including Zuken, Orcad, LTSpice, and others
  • Be able to write high quality test requirements and test reports
  • Some experience of product life cycles from concept through to production.

Desirable Skills:

  • Radar experience with hardware implementation
