FPGA Design Engineer

Location: El Segundo, CA

Type: Contract

 

Develop FPGA designs using: Xilinx, Altera, and Microsemi tools.

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.

What we’re looking for:

Ability to apply advanced digital design knowledge and principles to complex designs
Proficient at using a hardware description language such as VHDL, Verilog, or System Verilog
Proficient with FPGA timing constraints and timing closure
Proficient with digital toolsets and backend vendor tools
Proficient with a software or scripting language
Ability to take a design from concept to production
Ability to solve integration issues and determine root cause
Cross discipline knowledge such as software, digital signal processing, etc.
Desired Skills:

Digital Signal Processing and simulation using MATLAB or equivalent
Experience applying fixed-point analysis and conversion of floating point algorithms
Experience with embedded systems design utilizing Microblaze, and ARM processors
Knowledge of industry standard interfaces and protocols such as AXI, PCIe, SPI, I2C, Serial Rapid IO etc.
Integration experience with FPGA based systems
Familiarity with advanced verification techniques
Ability to manage and trace requirements.
