  • Verifying the design and functionality of the digital circuits using simulation tools and performing tests on a physical FPGA board.
  • Creating and maintaining documentation for the FPGA design, including schematics, test plans and user manuals
  • Develop and partition digital system architecture
  • Ability to work closely and collaboratively with other SW/HW developers to rapidly deliver integrated systems.


  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering.
  • At least 1 year of hands-on experience with FPGA systems, acquired through projects, co-ops, or employment.
  • Solid understanding of digital design principles and proficiency in FPGA tools and technologies.
  • Demonstrated ability in designing, coding, testing, and validating FPGAs and/or ASICs.
  • Proficiency in VHDL, Verilog, System Verilog, as well as C or C++.
  • Competency in coding with Python and Matlab.
  • Experience with RTL synthesis, including writing timing, area, and other relevant constraints.
  • Familiarity with digital simulators and adeptness in creating self-checking test benches is an advantage.
  • Proficiency in scripting languages such as TCL, Bash, and Shell is beneficial.
  • Knowledgeable in Linux OS is an advantage.
  • Exceptional writing, analytical, and communication skills.
  • Highly motivated, well-organized self-starter.
