DSP FPGA Design Engineer


Stream Resourcing are currently seeking an DSP-FPGA Design Engineer to join a world-leading Aerospace and Defence company with an international reach, providing products for more than 40 countries worldwide.

You will be responsible for designing, implementing, and testing FPGA-based digital signal processing solutions for Radar cross-section (RCS) measurement system.

Working as part of a high calibre Software/RF System team, you will be involved in all phases of projects and additional engineering tasks.

The role involves:

  • Implement complex system algorithms and interfaces in Model Based Environments for RCS measurements system, across the whole project lifecycle

  • Develop requirements and budgets for signal processing functions

  • Support system & FPGA simulations, implementations, and verification (In Matlab-Simulink)

  • Implement DSP algorithms for FPGA (Xilinx) structures

  • Provide risk assessments, suggest and execute feasibility investigations, and guidance for bringing new technology to market

  • Communicate timely and accurate project status, provide alternative problem resolution ideas

  • Ensuring, in collaboration with Software Lead , the complete set of requirements from which the model is to be developed are captured and managed, including the capture and communication of design constraints , including external interfaces, partitioning requirements etc

  • Contributing directly to the definition of Software architectural constraints considerations, which form an important set of functional requirements allocated to the model

  • Ensuring that any Software verification activities performed by the Systems life cycle processes within the model are provided into the Software Life cycle process in a manner that has satisfied the DO178C objectives

Key skills/experience:

  • Design with architecting and implementing Digital Signal processing systems, Functions and FPGA design experience using VHDL or Verilog

  • FPGA design experience with synthesis, timing analysis and verification

  • Experience with Modelsim, Matlab/Simulink, Xilinx Vivado, Git and development tools

  • Detailed knowledge of implementing Filters, FFTs , etc, design structures

Desirable experience:

  • Working knowledge at both simulation level (Matlab/Simulink) as well as the implementation and verification level

  • Familiarity with using oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers, logic analysers, etc

  • Literacy with real-time embedded software, especially debugging is advantage

  • Strong interpersonal skills.

    Excellent verbal/written communication skills

  • Strong background and experience with industry best practices and version control

  • Understanding of RF Systems, specifically Radar or EW

Important information: Due to the security nature of the role, a successful candidate will need to satisfy an SC level security check
