How You’ll Help us Connect The World:
As a member of our FPGA engineering team for our Small cell product line, this role will focus on design, implementation, and integration of RTL for LTE and 5GNR radio access points. This includes collaboration with peers across many engineering fields on the design of unique programmable logic based wireless solutions. Our FPGA engineers participate with system, hardware, software, and test engineers in architecture, requirements, bring up, design verification testing (DVT) and end-to-end integration of the final product. Define and develop digital functions for 5G wireless radio units using a solid background in telecommunication/DSP areas. Implement FPGA designs for wireless communication systems design, mainly 4G/5G systems, using RTL (VHDL/Verilog) and high-level tools (DSP Builder, System Generator).


Required Qualifications for Consideration:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering and twelve years of experience or Master’s Degree and five years of relevant experience
  • Experience in FPGA design and implementation for high-speed real-time data processing applications in Intel and Xilinx products and development environments. Strong FPGA logic and DSP element design background with ability to do RTL design and verification using Verilog and VHDL.
  • Familiar with multi gigabit packet communication protocols (Ethernet) and corresponding hardware cores in FPGA. Multi-gigabit design (10Gb/s Ethernet, 25Gb/s Ethernet, JESD204, 10GBASE-R/KR, or similar)
  • Experience in supporting product development through the entire product lifecycle and in leading, developing and integrating designs in a multi-discipline collaborative engineering environment.


You Will Excite Us If You Have:
Previous work experience with 5G, LTE, ORAN, WiMax, WiFi baseband or DSPand digital up converter/down converter blocks. Zync Ultrascale SoC or equivalent integrated hard processor with programmable logic device preferred. Background in Signal Processing and DSP implementation (FFT, iFFT, Filter Design, DUC/DDC, etc.). Implementation knowledge in the following signal processing areas – Digital NCO, Quadrature Modulator and Demodulator, channel filtering, AGC and PLL and loop filters. Proficiency with AXI and Avalon bus architectures with DMA. Clock domain partitioning, timing constraints rules, static timing closure and hierarchical test bench design. Automated vector stimulus input and output vector pass/fail checking and ChipScope or SignalTap debugger and/or equivalent methods. Are located within a commutable distance to our facilities in Lisle, IL, Richardson, TX, Shakopee, MN and Forest VA to enable easy access to lab facility if needed
