FPGA DESIGN ENGINEER - STEVENAGE - PERMANENT - £40-70K |
Please note that due to the sensitive nature of the products you must be able to obtain SC Clearance.
My client is a market leading manufacturer technology for defence applications. Due to continued and sustained growth they are currently looking to add a FPGA Design Engineer to the Electronic Design Function on a permanent basis.
The Electronics Design Function is responsible for the design and delivery of complex Electronics Sub-systems.
FPGA's are a critical element of the designs and are often complex and challenging. They cover a wide range of functionality from complex low level Image processing algorithms to Actuator control functions and all shades in between. The designs often incorporate devices with processing cores and designers have to establish close links with the Software design function to get the most from these devices.
The FPGA design team undertake the whole of the development process from negotiation of requirements and initial design architecture, through to the formal validation and verification of the design. Many designs have demanding safety requirements so engineers must be able to rigorously verify their designs and demonstrate this to the Safety Officers.
Qualifications / Experience:
-Ideally degree qualified or equivalent
-A thorough understanding of and completion of a number of complex FPGA designs using Xilinx, and/or Altera FPGA devices (including SoC configurations using Power PC or ARM cores)
-Knowledge of Image processing and Safety related design in the context of FPGA's and the verification of such devices
-Knowledge of the trends in FPGA technologies
-CAE Design tools (Xilinx EDK, Xilinx ISE, Xilinx XST, Mentor Graphics HDL Designer, Precision Synthesis, ModelSim)
-Inherent drive to be part of gaining and spreading knowledge throughout the team to improve its medium/long term capability
-Ability to communicate through presentations, verbally and via written reports
-Strong personal abilities with a focus on and desire to achieve the delivery of tasks to schedule
