FPGA Designer


Job Description:

  • Responsible for the design, test, and integration of complex, high speed FPGAs.
  • Fully document design details and hold a design review prior to implementation.
  • Implement the approved design using VHDL.
  • Verify the design by generating all necessary test benches and/or test vectors and simulating with ModelSim.
  • Target the design to a Xilinx orActel device using synthesis and place & route tools.
  • Able to work in a fast-paced development team, working closely with hardware and software engineers during test and integration.

Position Requirements:

  • Minimum BSEE with 2 years experience (or Masters).
  • Experience in the design of FPGA logic, good knowledge of digital device characteristics, design and simulation tools (i.e. ModelSim) based on HDL (Hardware Description Language, VHDL preferred).
