Working under the supervision of the FPGA group manager, your responsibilities, as an FPGA designer, will be to define, implement, test and support high-speed and high-performance digital circuits for the FPGA embedded in various telecommunication applications used across EXFO’s test and measurement equipment product line.
What you’ll do
More specifically, working in close collaboration with the H/W and S/W groups in an Agile development environment, your work will be to study industry standards related to communication protocols and to explore FPGA technologies to guide design toward desired solutions.
You will have to define the architecture of the circuits to realize, to design low-level FPGA designs (inputs / outputs, interfaces, etc.), code IP blocks that implement high-speed, high-performance digital circuits for different protocols, to compile designs with the help of EDA tools and optimize circuits to meet performance criteria.
You will also perform functional verification of FPGA designs and circuits both in simulation and on electronic boards.
Finally, you will have to work closely with the hardware, software and verification teams to integrate the FPGA functions into the final product.
If necessary, you may also be required to perform other related duties that may fall under this position.
What we’re looking for
Pertinent experience: From 1 to 5 years of experience as FPGA Designer
Language requirements: French and English (verbal and written).
Education: Bachelor’s degree in Electrical / Electronical Engineering or in Computer Sciences.
Other: Must have proper authorizations and paperwork to legally work in Canada.
Any other combination of experience/studies will be considered.
