FPGA and DSP Engineer
- Chantilly, VA
In an era of dynamic change in space, Aerospace is addressing a generation of complex challenges. We operate the only federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) committed exclusively to the space enterprise. Our technical experts span every discipline of space-related science and engineering. Join our team and thrive in a career that matters to the world and you personally.
The Digital Electronics and Electromagnetics Department is seeking an FPGA and Signal Processing engineer interested in working problems in both signal processing and digital communications and its implementation in hardware. The department has extensive prototyping and proof of concept development experience in communications and signal exploitation applications. The work involves the development of algorithms and transitioning them to processing platforms such as FPGAs, GPUs and general processors. Prototypes are typically developed utilizing SDR platforms and various waveform generation and capture technologies. The work includes prototype development, subsystem modeling and simulation, system level analysis and oversight of customer projects. The whole department engages in work involving antennas, RF subsystems, analog to digital and digital to analog conversion, digital processing and algorithm implementation.
- Implement digital signal processing algorithms for communications and signal exploitation systems.
- Utilize MATLAB and Python for algorithm prototyping and optimization of algorithms for efficient hardware implementation.
- Implement algorithms in hardware platforms such as FPGAs and GPUs.
- Utilize hardware implementation languages such as VHDL and CUDA.
- Assist senior staff in development of algorithms and implementation in laboratory environment.
- Support system analysis and studies used to provide guidance and technical advice on customer projects.
- Work with other engineers as a team member in solving problems.
- Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, physics or a related technical discipline from a recognized institution.
- A minimum of 5 years of experience (post bachelor degree, graduate school counts).
- Experience developing digital signal processing algorithms in MATLAB or Python.
- Experience with basic DSP tools such as MATLAB or Python.
- Experience with hardware implementation on platforms such as FPGAs and GPUs.
- Experience working in an electronics laboratory environment.
- Strong written and verbal communication skills.
- This position requires the ability to obtain and maintain a security clearance, which is issues by the U.S. government. U.S. citizenship is required to obtain a security clearance.
- Advanced degree in the area of digital communications or DSP implementation.
