Doing so will require acquiring an intimate knowledge of how our current and new devices operate along with the practical ability to write FPGA code and support PCB design, including schematic entry.

Existing core FPGA designs are typically based on Xilinx 7 series and UltraScale devices programmed using VHDL with Xilinx Vivado design tools. Schematic design of PCBs is typically CadStar but Cadence Sigrity design and modelling tools are also used to analyse signal integrity.

Qualifications and Experience:

  • Extensive experience of FPGA design - VHDL using Xilinx Vivado.
  • Extensice knowledge and experience of Electronics design including analogue, digital and mixed-signal.
  • Use of common electronics software tools (Cadstar, Autocad (PCB) SPICE and Multsim)
  • Extensive experience of PCB design, fabrication, assembly and debugging
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Capable of creating comprehensive documentation
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team

Useful Experience/Competencies:

  • Imaging handling and processing
  • High speed (gigabit) data transfer
  • DDR3/4 memory
  • FPGA design techniques for high reliability (e.g. radiation tolerance)
  • Electronics design for space and radiation tolerance
  • Use of Windchill PLM Software
  • Use of Cadence Sigrity and associated plug ins.
  • SVN Configuration Control
  • Artificial Intelligence for image processing
