We are seeking a Principal Electrical Engineer or Sr. Electrical Engineer (FPGA) with a BS/MSEE and 7+ years of experience who can develop FPGA designs for all of our major vendors and device families. U.S. citizenship is required.
Responsibilities: The EE will develop FPGA designs for all major vendors and device families, including: Xilinx, Altera, Lattice and Microsemi. The designs are implemented using VHDL and will support the following type of applications: gigabit serial interfaces, Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Optical (EO) Digital Signal Processing (DSP), control loops, data links, embedded processing, and processor interfaces.
As a configurable logic designer, you will work with circuit card designers and systems engineers to develop requirements, select parts, architect the device, perform code development, simulations, and place and route. Designs are verified against requirements using both directed test and constrained random methodologies and are supported from requirements definition through integration and test, and eventually production. Configuration management of the design is maintained throughout the entire design process.
This position can be a Principal Electrical Engineer or Sr. Principal Electrical Engineer based on your background & skills.
