Role Purpose: The Electronics Design Function (EE) is responsible for the design and delivery of Electronics Sub-systems for Missiles. We are looking for Sub-Contract FPGA Design Engineers to be part of this team to support a growing workload of complex design work
FPGA's are a critical element of our 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. Our designs often incorporate devices with processing cores and our designers have to establish close links with the Software design function to get the most from these devices.
Our 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 our engineers must be able to rigorously verify their designs and demonstrate this to the Safety Officers.
The FPGA group are a functional team, located together to enable them to share experiences and support each other in this demanding environment
Skills and Knowledge
Candidates will typically have the following attributes:
Ideally degree qualified or equivalent
A thorough understanding of and completion of a significant number of complex FPGA designs using Xilinx, and/or Altera FPGA devices (including SoC configurations using Power PC or ARM cores)
Thorough 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
The use of CAE Design tools (Xilinx EDK, Xilinx ISE, Xilinx XST, Mentor Graphics HDL Designer, Precision Synthesis, ModelSim)
Inherent drive to gain and spread knowledge throughout the team and for the benefit of the team
Ability to communicate and influence appropriately through presentations, verbally and via written reports
Strong personal abilities with a focus on and desire to achieve the delivery of tasks to schedule
