Copley Controls, a business unit of Analogic Corporation, is a worldwide leader in high
performance motion solutions. In end applications ranging from semiconductor manufacturing
tools to laboratory automation machinery to satellite tracking, Copley drives deliver world class
performance. Our motion control group is seeking a Senior Principal Electrical Engineer to join
our team. Copley motor drives are the most innovative in the industry and employ a wide variety
of technologies including high speed networking, digital signal processing with FPGA’s, precision
analog signal conditioning and high efficiency power conversion.
The ideal candidate is the person sought out by colleagues and management for guidance on
and solutions to strategic and difficult technical challenges. This is an opportunity to be the
principal technical innovator responsible for strengthening and maintaining Copley’s position as a
technology leader in the motion control industry. He or she must have a strong background and
experience with μC/FPGA based systems, mixed analog and digital circuitry, power conversion
electronics and control theory for both discrete and continuous time systems.


• Design PCB-level mixed analog/digital, interface and power electronic circuits to meet product
specification and cost requirements
• Maintain awareness of new component developments and emerging technologies relevant to
motion controls and use/recommend them for new designs where appropriate to achieve cost,
performance and size goals
• Set the standard for design best practices and collaborate with mechanical engineering, and the
firmware and software design teams to yield outstanding new products
• Be the leading technical voice in product planning meetings, design reviews etc. and foster
innovative thinking within the group by initiating continuous improvement discussions on all
aspects of product design and development.


• A BS in Electrical Engineering. MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering preferred
• 10+ years of direct, PCB-level, design experience with μC/FPGA based systems containing
mixed signal, interface and power conversion circuitry (5+ years with advanced degree)
• Ability to think and create across technical disciplines (mechanical, thermal, firmware/software,
test) to develop compact, reliable, high performance motor drives
• Strong ability to design magnetic components used in power conversion circuits
• An excellent understanding of control theory as applied to power conversion and motion control
• Ability to work both independently and as part of a product development team
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Experience with all phases of PCB design flow – specification, schematic capture, DFM/DFT
and layout
• Working knowledge of PCB design tools (Orcad Capture, PADS or Allegro)
• Familiarity with EMC, Electrical Safety and Functional Safety standards and requirements
Copley Controls is located in Canton, Massachusetts, just 3 miles from routes 93 and 95 and only
20 miles south of Boston’s city center. Our Motion team has a vibrant, entrepreneurial feel, but we
enjoy the many benefits of being part of Analogic, a strong and well-established technology
company. For more information on Copley’s Motion Controls Division, please visit
