Software Architect Sr. Engineer','41981','!*!GENERAL
The primary role
of the Basic Software Architect is to develop the top level design for ECU
Basic Software and map software functionality onto hardware resources. The BSW
Architect must be familiar with real-time operating system (RTOS)
functionality/configuration, microcontroller peripherals, serial communication,
and standard powertrain devices (i.e power supply ASICs, low-side drivers,
high-side drivers, CAN transcievers, etc).
Basic Software emphasis
is on low level driver software for powertrain control modules, including
engine control modules (ECM), transmission control modules (TCM), and hybrid power
inverter modules. Experience with transfer case control module (TCCM) and
active suspension controllers are also a plus.
This position will be
required to work directly with the customer to understand requirements and
present technical software solutions. The engineer will also work with
Hitachi's hardware engineering team in Farmington Hills and Japan to define
the hardware/software interface. The
engineer will decompose requirements into software components, define the
component interfaces, and deliver software architecture specifications to the
lead software designers.
The primary work location
is Farmington Hills, Michigan. Frequent travel will be required to customer
sites in southeast Michigan during certain program phases. Occasional
interstate travel may be required, primarily to manufacturing sites in the
southern United States. International travel is rare and is not generally
required for this position, however the engineer shall be qualified to travel
internationally if it becomes necessary.
responsibilities of the Basic Software
Architect shall include (but shall not be limited to) the following:
requirements and develop a requirements traceability matrix. Participate in
design, code, and test reviews to ensure that traceability is maintained.
Collaborate with functional safety and cyber security engineers to cover safety
and security goals.Develop software
architecture specifications using UML notation including use case diagrams,
component diagrams, class diagrams, sequence diagrams, activity diagrams, and
state machine diagrams. Supplemental notation for real-time performance requirements
is also required.Collaborate with
hardware engineers to define the hardware/software interface in terms of
microcontroller pin assignments, mixed signal processing algorithms, signal
scaling/resolution/timing, and diagnostic fault condition algorithms.Collaborate with the
customer to define a microcontroller memory map. Must be familiar with
low level drivers such as ADC, PWM, GPIO, timer modules, SPI, SCI, LIN, CAN,
SENT, DMA, external bus interfaces, memory management units, ECC, flash memory,
etc.Must be familiar with
real-time operating systems (RTOS), interrupt service routines, exception
handlers, task scheduling, and multi-core CPU operation.
','!*!Possess a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or a related technical area.Be proficient in software programming languages such as assembly, C or other high level languages.Be familiar with automotive component and vehicle test procedures, including environmental and EMI/EMC testing.Be generally knowledgeable in the automotive development process.Have a minimum of 7-10 years applicable experience in automotive environment.Have experience with electronic control systems.Have experience with design specifications and detailed software documentation.Have experience with software validation test procedures.Have experience with Infineon Aurix/NXP/Renesas microprocessors.Have working knowledge of debuggers and emulation tools, CAN interface tools and other serial communication interfaces.Have experience tracking and reporting design changes.Have experience coordinating and facilitating several small projects or one major project.Experience with ETAS calibration tools and real time OS kernels is a plus.Experience interfacing with customers.Must be able to travel for to Europe, US and Japan. Additionally, the ability to work independently with minimal direction is required as are strong verbal and written communications skills. Experience with PCs and application software, such as MS Office tools and Lotus Notes are also required.','','US-MI-Farmington Hills','Americas','Americas','','Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas, Inc.','Not Available','Not Available','','','','','','','Experienced','Software Architect Sr. Engineer
