Within the Digital Products Department, you will be a part of a key role within the Engineering organization by developing the electronics for the weapon system products. We engage at the outset of the weapon system development and follow our designs through deployment. Our team helps develop the requirements and bring concepts to life. Our products are deployed all over the world, on the ground, and they reach the exoatmospheric environments and into space. We are responsible for the architecture, design, and documentation of deliverable firmware and FPGA embedded processing at RMD.
The Electrical Engineer will develop FPGA designs for all major vendors and device families including: Xilinx, Altera, Lattice, and Microsemi. Designs are implemented using VHDL for the following applications: gigabit serial interfaces, Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Optical (EO) DSP, controls, data links, embedded processing and processor interfaces. Designers work with circuit card designers and systems engineers to develop requirements, architect new parts, collaborative modeling of algorithms, partition and perform code development, simulation, and place and route. Designs are verified against requirements using both directed test and constrained random methodologies. Design support is expected from requirements definition through integration and test. Design documentation and configuration management are required.
Demonstrate self-motivation, with little supervision required
Design and deliver production quality FPGA releases from initial proof of concept up to production
Work cooperatively with systems, hardware, software engineers, and program management to ensure product success
Demonstrate the ability to architect FPGA-based systems to determine parts, interfaces, and Concept of Operations (CONOPS)
Translate system level requirements into FPGA requirements
Design and code in VHDL for reliability and maintainability
Verify designs utilizing self-checking techniques with directed and constrained random tests, while tracking functional and code coverage
Create complete documentation including requirements, verification plan, and user’s guides
Support internal and external technical reviews
NOTE: This position can be either an Electrical Engineer II (G07) or Sr. Electrical Engineer I (G08) based on the candidate’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position .
U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.
