The electronic engineer at Patton Design is experienced in analogue and digital hardware engineering. The electronics engineer must have an integrated approach to the complete product development process for electronic engineering. Electronic and hardware engineering is a balance of what the mechanical and human factor requirements are. The hardware engineer must integrate beginning concept specifications with the human factor and industrial design goals. Electronics engineeringmay also direct all product development based upon the budget and schedule to effect overall product goals. The electronic engineer must also integrate with the software engineer to facilitate the software GUI needs. The hardware engineering needs to support the software user requirements for flexibility and ease of use for current and future needs.
