Digital Hardware Engineer

Develop and support Board and/or FPGA/CPLD designs through all phases of design and system integration for high-reliability embedded aerospace applications. Perform activities such as requirements generation, Board and VHDL design, RTL-synthesis, test bench development and design simulation, static timing and power analysis, and requirements based design verification. Other activities include prototype evaluation, design-to-cost tradeoffs, design reviews, qualification test support, system integration support, production and obsolescence support tasks. Maintain the desire to stay current in the continuously developing field and to expand knowledge base and skills in FPGA design and digital hardware engineering.
