Solid understanding of signal processing concepts; ability to architect signal processing firmware and software; work closely with the engineering teams through design and implementation, integration, testing, and qualification of the deliverable system
Experience with fixed-point digital math functions and implementations, floating point data structures, control theory (feedback systems and tracking), and communication theory
Experience with Digital Signal Processing operations and optimization (FIR filters, Up/Down sampling, convolution, correlations…)
Proficiency in MATLAB; able to implement algorithms in FPGAs from MATLAB code
Utilize basic digital logic design concepts (understanding how VHDL code translates into logic primitives within an FPGA); understanding of all of the architectural elements within Xilinx or Altera FPGA
Static timing analysis and the process by which timing closure is achieved in a design
Experience with Cadence Incisive Enterprise Simulator; familiar with Subversion, Python, or Perl
Work closely with the engineering teams through design, implementation, integration, testing, and qualification of the deliverable system
Must be able to work independently and to lead a design team and negotiate solutions with Hardware / Software Engineering and Systems Engineering
Bachelor’s Degree and minimum 9 years prior related experience or a Graduate Degree with a minimum of 7 years of prior related experience.
