Work type: Full Time - Permanent
Location: Gaydon, Warwickshire
Categories: Electrical

Aston Martin is built upon the passion, skill and creativity of the people who dedicate their working lives to the most iconic brand in the world. Every intricate stitch beautifully expressed line, and the stirring noise of our engines is a manifestation of the desire and collective spirit to create the most beautiful cars: the soul of Aston Martin made real.

Electrical Engineering is responsible for electrical architecture, systems design, and electrical component delivery. The Architecture Team is responsible for strategy, specification and delivery of the whole vehicle EE architecture, system interactions, communication network and functional partitioning work products.

Job Purpose: 

Design of vehicle wide electrical systems to deliver required functionality within component and architecture constraints. Leading architecture development, encompassing functional and technical work products primarily focused on the infotainment domain.

Key Responsibilities & Tasks:

  • Lead capture of vehicle functions to create a logical architecture, allocate functions into ECUs and signals into networks.
  • Lead risk assessment of new features for compatibility with proposed EE architecture and components. 
  • Support the Integration Team so they can deliver the Feature Implementation Plan.
  • Lead architecture proposal reviews, report out management status for gateways and support component sourcing process for the infotainment domain.
  • Lead E/E architecture development and work products.
  • Lead electrical system design of selected core features.
  • Cascade feature requirements between affected modules.  
  • Define signal flow diagrams and logical function blocks required to deliver the feature. 
  • Ensure feasibility of requirements implementation is considered e.g. I/O / memory / capacity / supplier constraints. 
  • Work with component & feature owners to define the EE architecture diagnostic concept for manufacturing end of line routines and service diagnostics (UDS ISO14229).
  • Document the system design in the AML requirements management tool, creating system requirements specifications (Polarion). 
  • Reporting out of architecture work products at key milestones to AML product development process.
  • Support architecture development collaboration with Daimler and propose technical architecture work products.
  • Lead development of EEA tools for EA design. (e.g. Capital Systems, Pree Vision).
  • Manage deliverables to support prototype vehicle development requirements and timing e.g. X1, M1, 1Pt, 2PT.                                                      
  • Support functional safety related tasks at the concept and system level, including item definition, HARA, definition of safety goals, impact analysis etc. Allocating E2E network requirements. (ISO26262) and security (ISO214314).
  • Support prototype vehicle electrical system design & specification of bridging parts (hardware, software or coding).
  • Support EDS with power supply/fusing and ground concepts (KL15, KL30, etc).
  • Work in cooperation with off-site (sometimes overseas) suppliers and partners as necessary to drive projects to completion.
  • Lead and develop network design, topology, signals releasing and extracts.
  • Lead the design and update all network interfaces and database (CAN/Lin).
  • Lead microcontroller and physical layer approval.
  • CAN database configuration management for EE.
  • Lead and develop variant matrix.         
  • Create and manage the vehicle configuration management and tools used by the ECUs for basic variant management.
  • Agree with feature owners allocating to ECUs and manage updates.
  • Agree and document any safety/security requirements for vehicle configuration management.

Qualification & Experience:

  • Knowledge of multiple automotive electronic systems from working as a systems architect on embedded systems in automotive or a related industry e.g. aerospace, with a focus on infotainment domain.
  • Writing system specifications in requirements capture tools eg. Doors, Polarion.
  • Network Protocols (CAN, Lin, CAN_FD, FlexRay, Ethernet).
  • Diagnostics Protocols (UDS/CCP).
  • Experience of updating components and vehicles with software & coding & reading electrical DTCs.. 
  • Ability to create & configure CAN tools for logging.
  • Ability to diagnose & solve technical problems
  • Embedded Software Development (preferred)
  • Electronic Hardware Design (preferred)
  • E2E Signal Protection (preferred)
  • Autosar (preferred)
  • UML/SysML (preferred)
  • Mentor VSA Networks Tool (preferred)
  • Functional Safety (ISO26262) (preferred)
  • EMC (preferred)
  • Knowledge of vehicle design & development process (AML Mission or industry equivalents, ie: GPDS , FPDS). (preferred)
