Found in: Neuvoo CA

 FPGA / PLD Developer
1 year Contract 

Paid Hourly $45-$55 per hour , Can work from home, but must be willing to go into the office when needed.

We are currently looking for an FPGA / PLD Developer to join our Engineering team.  You will be part of the core team to define the requirements, implement and verify FPGA based designs using VHDL and/or other modelling languages.  The job will include involvement in all stages of the design life-cycle following the guidelines of a DO-254 or equivalent process.
  • Capture, Define and Refine product specifications into a set of device level requirements including functional architecture, allocation and justification or derived requirements
  • Implementation of requirements into VHDL code including usage of existing IPs, standard protocols (e.g. Omnibus, Ethernet, SPI, I2C, AMBA, etc.)
  • Simulation and Physical Integration and Test including trouble shooting, debugging and design modification
  • Perform the integration of the design into the larger scale product and/or system
  • Create and maintain life cycle data to support the design, implementation and verification of the item
  • Support estimation and planning activities
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (or equivalent) with a focus on Digital Design
  • 5+ years of FPGA / PLD development experience preferably in aerospace, defense or medical product environments using VHDL or similar languages
  • Knowledge and experience with DO-254 or similar guidelines for ensuring a safe and rigorous design process
  • Experience designing and implementing interfaces between digital devices and microcontrollers including communications and data busses, common protocols and error handling
Additional Considerations:
  • A background in embedded control systems, preferably in the aerospace and defense domain, including working knowledge of system interfaces and sensors such as RVDT/LVDT, BLDC motors, Servo Motors, temperature and pressure sensors and ARINC communications.  The ability to model and simulate these aspects in a MatLab/Simulink type environment would be an asset.
  • Working knowledge of the ModelSim toolset for development and verification of VHDL designs
  • Excellent verbal and communication skills
