You will play a key role in specifying, developing, characterizing, and validating motion sensing systems. Familiarity with MEMS sensor technologies such as inertial sensor performance metrics, inertial sensor usage and limitations, and system integration are a major plus! The Motion Sensing Hardware Team features a collaborative environment with creative, smart people and state of the art technologies. This team defines and integrates MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes across a variety of Apple products such as iPhones, iPads, AirPods, and AppleWatch. Features we help enable include Fall Detection, Spatial Audio, Optical Image Stabilization, and many others.
- 2+ years of hands-on experience and proven track record in sensing system hardware engineering.
- Fundamental knowledge and experience in physics, mechanical, electrical, and material science engineering, and manufacturing technology relevant for sensor fabrication.
- Experience in characterization, and validation of sensing systems that includes theory of operation, signal processing, fabrication, packaging and design trade-offs.
- Experience in programming in one or more of the following: C/Python/MATLAB/Swift
You will be developing and validating motion sensors. You will be expected to identify, create, and document new sensing metrics. Work cross-functionally to identify critical performance parameters Knowledge of electro-mechanical systems is preferred Experience with high volume mass production is a plus Up to 20% travel required
