    • Might consider relevant experience in lieu of education.
    • Extensive FPGA design / implementation including VDHL design / development
    • Knowledge of FPGA design environments, including ISE, Vivado (preferred), EDK, Modelsim and Matlab a plus
    • Experience in the following:
    • Creating requirements for VHDL designs
    • Selection of host programmable devices (FPGA or other)
    • Simulation / modeling of VHDL design (we use Matlab)
    • Implementation of design and hardware testing onto host FPGA
    • Test of overall communication system
    • Documentation of the design.
    • Experience in designing, developing, and testing RTL.
    • Experience / knowledge of signal processing is helpful/preferred (wireless communications: satcom, airborne, ground-to-ground, radio comm, point-to-point, multi-point, etc.)
