Sr. Firmware Design Engineer
Wilton, USA, America

The FPGA Firmware Engineer will work with a team of specialists who will be responsible for developing, testing, and supporting electronics boards or sub-systems. The engineer will be responsible for definition, design, verification and documentation for FPGA’s (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). They will provide RTL design, simulation, physical implementation and verification of complex FPGA modules comprising a mix of custom RTL with hard and soft vendor IP cores within a larger architecture. Determine architecture, system verification and detailed design approach. Define module interfaces and all aspects of device design and simulation coordinated with the PC Board Designers. Evaluate the process flow including but not limited to high level design, synthesis, place and route, timing constraints and power utilization. Develop test, simulation plans and design verification test plans at design top level. Develop, implement and supervise design verification test plans at system level. Support the generation of technical engineering products by using the appropriate standards, processes, procedures, and tools throughout the FPGA development life cycle. May provide leadership and/or direction to lower level employees. Independently determine approach to solutions and get alignment from System Engineers and board developers.
