FPGA Design Engineer : Highly successful Defence Organisation based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire is currently looking to recruit 3x FPGA Design Engineers. Please Note: you must be eligible for SC (Secret Level) Security Clearance if you’re not already cleared to that level. Hourly rate - £46.25 per hour. FPGA Design Engineer Job Description: The Electronics Design Function (EE) are responsible for the design and delivery of Electronics Sub-systems. FPGA’s are a critical element of the departments 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. Designs often incorporate devices with processing cores and the 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. The FPGA group are a functional team, located together to enable them to share experiences and support each other in this demanding environment. Candidate 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) This job was originally posted as www.totaljobs.com/job/66875055
