development environments (Xilinx Vivado, Quartus Prime, and Lattice
Diamond) and tool flows with proven ability to design, implement,
sustain and document FPGA designs from specifications. Ability to
perform hardware/FPGA check-out and debug in a hands-on lab
environment. Background in digital signal processing and/or network
processing FPGA applications. Demonstrate and apply comprehensive
knowledge of electronics design to successful completion of
assignments. Leadership and role model qualities, including
respect, initiative, execution, trust, honesty, and collaboration,
are demonstrated. Preferred Knowledge/Skills, Education, and
Experience: Experience with safety critical/vital systems.
Knowledge of FCC guidelines for emissions and susceptibility.
Knowledge of RF. Understanding of design principles (FMEA Analysis,
Reliability Analysis). Review circuits/schematics, understand
functionality, identify critical components/circuitry and recommend
suitable replacements. Benefits: Competitive salary based on
qualifications Health, dental, and vision plans with options
