Job Description


Sr. Advanced FPGA Design Engineer
 
Location: Bloomington, MN 55431
Duration: 6+ months, then potential direct hire
 
You must be a US Citizen.
 
You must be willing to undergo an extensive background check so that you can get a Department of Defense Secret Clearance.
 
You are a very experienced Senior FPGA digital logic Design Engineer with at least 8 years of direct experience.
 
You are adept with FPGA research, design, development, and testing, hopefully with military electronic equipment and systems... such as: avionics mission computers, stores management systems, signal and radar processing systems and related equipment.
 
You have familiarity with a variety of digital logic design techniques including PWB, electronic module, and lab checkout. And, you are a self-starter who is able to translate customer requirements into a cost-effective design optimized for manufacturing and periodic operational maintenance.
 
You're able to keep from being overwhelmed while you multitask and prioritize while dealing with several projects.
 
And, you are able to decomposed statements of work into digital logic design requirements and used formal methodologies/tools to capture and track requirements.
 
You also know high speed network switch design approaches.
 
And, you've worked with your designs in a team environment to execute FPGA Logic Design activities targeting Xilinx and/or Altera FPGAs, Synthesis, Timing closure, Verification and Lab FPGA integration
 
More specifically, here are some of the things you'll do...
  • Execute Requirement Decomposition, FPGA Digital Logic Design, Synthesis, Timing Analysis, Verification, and integration activities.
  • Requirement definition/clarification, design, verification, associated documentation for FPGA development, design revision control and archiving
  • Determine detailed design approach
  • Define FPGA interfaces and all aspects of device design and simulation
  • Evaluate and tailor process flow, especially for high level design, synthesis, place and route, timing and power utilization for programs
  • Create test and verification plans that establish functional criteria to ensure requirements have been met
  • Verify test results against requirements and analyzes performance
  • May provide leadership and/or direction to lower level employees
 
Getting a fast, productive start on your first day is critical. Here are the things you'll need in your background for that to happen...
 
Required:
  • US Citizen

  • Self-starter, able to translate customer requirements into a cost-effective design optimized for manufacturing and periodic operational maintenance.
  • Able to multitask and prioritize while dealing with several projects.
  • Decomposed statements of work (SOW) into digital logic design requirements and used formal methodologies/tools to capture and track requirements
  • Successfully lead FPGA design or verification activities to ensure implementation and verification of all requirements
  • Familiar with high speed network switch design approaches
  • Developed and executed FPGA Logic Design activities targeting Xilinx and/or Altera FPGAs, Synthesis, Timing closure, Verification and Lab FPGA integration
  • Board and Module digital logic design experience
  • Been a member of a successful integration team
  • Generated and executed constraint driven synthesis and timing closure techniques
  • Familiar with VHDL
  • Used constrained random verification approaches
  • Designed high speed interfaces and complex memory designs
  • Familiar with embedded micro-processing systems
  • Design experience with protocols such as DDR, 10G Ethernet, Fibre Channel and PCIe in networking applications
  • Design experience integrating 3rd party IP
  • Expertise with various scripting languages and approaches
  • Proficient with Mentor Questa
 
Desired:
 
  • 10 years of relevant work experience consisting of FPGA Verilog HDL Digital Logic Design techniques, methodologies, and related verification activities.
