Essential Functions:
  • Decompose and allocate system and box-level requirements to FPGA specifications.
  • Architect solutions targeting FPGAs against requirements and implement those solutions an FPGA platforms.
  • Map FPGA simulation work products to system-level requirements and capabilities.
  • Refine and enforce consistent firmware development processes across FPGA designs.
  • Ensure the FPGA simulations verify performance, then integrate and test the FPGA on the circuit card assembly.
  • Design Low/Med Complexity Circuit Card Assemblies (CCA) starting from System De-composition and completing through System Integration and Test.
  • Develop and edit circuit schematics with OrCad/Altium development tools and perform circuit simulation with PSPICE software.
  • Edit and develop C/C++ source code for embedded software.
  • Perform CCA Design specifying Mixed Signal Technology circuits consisting of A/D, D/A, Processors, I/O communication and Programmable Logic (FPGA, CPLD) circuits.
  • Provide system test and evaluation support including input to test plans and procedures.

  • U.S. citizen and Active Secret security clearance required.
  • Valid state driver’s license.
Preferred Additional Skills:
  •   Thorough understanding of version control best practices and tools (subversion, git, etc) to closely track changes to the FPGA baseline.
  •   Experience with Analog to Digital (AD) and Digital to Analog (DA) interfaces.
  •   Experience with control protocols such I2C, SPI, RS-232/422, and SpaceWire.
  •   Experience with complex block and top level simulations of FPGA designs requiring high level transaction-based models.
  •   Ability to speak, read and write the English language.
  •   Self-motivated individual with the ability to work and communicate effectively within a development group.
  •   Ability to work in a team environment and negotiate solutions with Hardware / Software Engineering and Systems Engineering is preferred.
