? Develops digital FPGA logic solutions targeting applications such as system communications/control, data movement and processing, and embedded microprocessors.
? Oversees and participates in the engineering life cycle of FPGA products including requirements, architecture, design, implementation, verification, integration, and debug following appropriate engineering best practices and department processes.
? Guides and supports other FPGA engineers in implementing the architecture as defined, and helps monitor the proper application of best practices and department processes on designs which they are leading.
? Prepares design documentation and participates-in design reviews.
? Participates in project analysis and planning efforts and provides timely status input to engineering management.
? Proactively participates in FPGA department process improvement by taking part in internal discussions, providing experiential input and feedback, and exploring and sharing information about new related industry concepts and tools.
? May develop system architecture concepts and design documentation for complex multi- custom hardware component systems.

Key Competencies
? Generates creative solutions; welcomes feedback to modify and improve designs
? Is accurate, thorough and monitors own work quality; constantly looking for ways to improve and promote quality
? Quickly adapts to changes in priority, approach or method to best fit the situation; manages competing demands; deals well with delays or unexpected events

EXPERIENCE
Background including:
? Complex digital FPGA architecture and design for embedded systems.
? High bandwidth data communications, storage, and manipulation in an FPGA.
      ? Writing and reviewing documentation including requirements, design, verification, and interface guides (e.g. User, Software).
? Hardware/Software integration and lab debug using common equipment including internal FPGA logic analyzer tools (e.g. Vivado Logic Analyzer).
? Working within or leading a small team of developers in a coordinated and efficient manner to deliver high quality and timely product.
? Communicating and coordinating across engineering functional teams to achieve project goals.
? Supporting and providing input to project planning and management including work breakdown, estimates and task status.
? Experience with system requirements analysis and Hardware/FPGA/Software breakdown, and low-level system architecture design preferred.


Proficiency with:
? HDL coding (e.g. VHDL, Verilog, etc.) for FPGA development and simulation.
? HDL design and coding best practices for purpose (e.g. resource use, clock-rate, latency).
? FPGA design tools, simulation tools (e.g. Xilinx Vivado, Mentor QuestaSim).
? Source control tools (e.g. Subversion, ClearCase).
