RFID Hardware Engineer
Back to vacancies overview

RFID Hardware Engineer

  • Groenlo
  • Retail
Within our R&D department we work with state-of-art RFID technology and advanced processing platforms and signal processing. 

By developing our own hardware, we are able to design our products in such a way that they perfectly solve the current problems of our customers, but are also flexible enough to add relevant functionalities for the years to come. For example, the core of our platform consists of a System-on-Chip with both an FPGA and a CPU. For the radio we use an external reader IC and use this to make our own implementation to arrive at our solution.

At the moment we are investigating a new processing platform including a new radio. This will be the building block that will be used to set up a whole new product line. In the role of RFID hardware engineer you will help develop this new platform and the products based on it. You are actively involved in making the right component choices and in creating the schematic and layout. Because of worldwide application of our products, certification and the associated EMC requirements play an important role in the design work.
