Senior FPGA Design Engineer - Green Card/Citizen required for this position

Portland, ME
Specify, develop, and verify Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) designs and associated modules for new embedded systems products that we and our customers develop.

Functions & Responsibilities

  • Design and development for FPGA and FPGA-based System-on-Chips (SoCs) used in new electronic products ranging from simple hardware solutions to highly complex embedded processing systems.
  • Develop detailed specifications based on requirements and implement FPGA designs in accordance with those defined requirements and/or specifications.
  • Collaborate with other members of the design team to evaluate possible alternatives during the development process and determine best approach based on performance, cost, and resources.
  • Perform simulation activities including timing analysis, behavioral, and functional simulations.
  • Develop test benches and other test tools as needed to complete verification of FPGA designs.
  • Participate in the bring-up of new, custom FPGA-based hardware with support from firmware and electrical engineers.
  • Support hardware development through schematic design and in some cases PCBA layout.
  • Document ideas, designs, specifications, and instructions to our standards.
  • Mentor junior members of the engineering staff to promote design team abilities and establish good working practices.

Job Requirements

  • Demonstrated skill in developing original designs with VHDL for FPGAs and/or FPGA-based SoCs.
  • Strong understanding of FPGA design and architectural concepts as well as the integration with both hardware and software.
  • Specific experience with common FPGA platforms such as Xilinx or Intel. Experience with Xilinx family of SoCs and associated interfaces (AXI4 bus, transceivers, etc.) is preferred.
  • Strong understanding of tools and methodologies used in the context of FPGA development and integration. Familiarity with source control via established systems such as Git is a plus.
  • Experience developing testbenches and applying simulation techniques including timing analysis, etc.
  • Working knowledge of electronics development including schematic and PCBA layout tools.
  • Demonstrated skill in independently using electronics lab equipment to develop/troubleshoot low-level drivers and hardware integration for interfaces such as I2C, SPI, UART, USB, etc.
  • Experience designing real-time processing solutions including image/video processing.
  • Be able to work with a minimum of supervision and follow established design procedures during the development cycle, documenting the design to our standards.
  • Must possess good interpersonal skills and have the ability to work between multiple departments in carrying out this position’s duties.

Educational Requirements

  • A 4-year degree or equivalent experience in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related engineering discipline.
  • A minimum of 5 years of FPGA development or equivalent experience.


  • We offer a competitive benefits package
