you’re looking for electronic design challenges that go well beyond the
usual, you’ve come to the right place. In many companies, electronic
engineers simply design components to meet pre-established
requirements. At FEI, you’ll work with a multidisciplinary team of
physicists and engineers to define requirements, and you’ll
have input into all aspects of the system design. We believe this
collaborative approach helps us push the boundaries of what’s possible
and deliver better value to our customers.
For example, in our latest SEM column design, we changed the
physical and mechanical design of the electrostatic scan and deflection
unit several times to get the electrical requirements to a feasible set
of specifications. This upfront collaboration delivered a successful
design that has evolved to deliver value across multiple products. The
latest iteration includes almost 2000 components on a double eurocard.
The scan signals have a dynamic range of over 150dB in a bandwidth of 1
MHz; the signal can have a realistic slew rate of 300V in one μs; and
the DC levels are stable to about 10 ppm (parts per million).
This is just one example out of many. We are continuously working to
expand the boundaries of electronic design, delivering capabilities
such as current measurements in the fA range with stabilities a few
orders lower, switch mode designs for current source control with sub
ppm stability, and energy efficiency up to 97% for 500W switch mode
If you work with us, you’ll be part of a 30 person electronic design
community across multiple geographies. You’ll know your colleagues
personally and be able to communicate directly with other designers,
firmware specialists and electromechanical engineers. When design
demands exceed our internal capacity, we bring in outside resources, so
you’ll also have opportunities to work with other design companies to
ensure timely, high quality results. We offer a unique opportunity to
use your talents to the fullest, and to build a successful career in a
global, multi-cultural work environment.
