Requests for reasonable accommodations for medical, religious, or other reasons will be considered in accordance with applicable law. These positions are 100% Onsite.

Responsibilities:

– Participate in all phases of FPGA design flow, from concept to mass production.
– Develop high-level design requirements and block-level micro-architectures, partition design within ASIC/FPGA, create specification documents.
– Develop RTL designs using SystemVerilog, with emphasis on DSP and digital communication system blocks (frontend, physical layer, link layer, error correction, etc.).
– Optimize designs for area, speed, and power to meet system requirements; analyze architectural trade-offs.
– Develop test benches and test cases for block-level functional verification, emphasizing bit-matching and self-checking.
– Verify DSP blocks against fixed-point MATLAB model, work in collaboration with systems engineers.
– Participate in SoC and FPGA integration activities.
– Prototype designs on FPGA, focusing on closely emulating the final product functionality.
– Perform lint checking, CDC checking, logic equivalence checking, and other EDA tool-based checks.
– Work with backend/implementation teams to address synthesis, timing, layout, and DFT issues for ASICs.
– Bring-up and validate ASICs and FPGAs in the lab, utilize various lab equipment.
– Collaborate with software engineers in developing production software for your designs.

Minimum Qualifications:

– 8+ years of experience designing/testing with FPGAs (Xilinx, Altera, etc.).
– 8+ years of experience with SystemVerilog, Verilog, or VHDL RTL design.
– 3+ years of experience leading a team of Engineers.
