FPGA Developer

Our client has developed an innovative approach to image and video compression that is driving major change in the encoding sector. They are seeking experienced individuals to join their compression development team for high speed development of 4k and HD video FPGA processing. The FPGA role reports directly to an Engineering Manager responsible for development, but you will also interact with other development disciplines in order to create and integrate FPGA technology into the product portfolio.



In your role you will be: 


  • Take the conceptual, high level mathematical work of our client’s research group and architect RTL for FPGA implementation
  • Create test benches to verify RTL functionality using test vectors or random stimulus methodology
  • Create clear, concise and verifiable technical specifications
  • Take personal responsibility for timescale estimation, task prioritisation and design accuracy
  • Support the development of in-house C++ models for RTL verification
  • Maintain and support current FPGA deployments with customers and third parties




  • At least five years’ experience of FPGA development in Verilog or VHDL including synthesis and static timing analysis for FMAX optimisation
  • Experience of integrating 3rd party IP blocks (e.g. soft processors, SDI, PCie, DDR and network cores)
  • Preferably experience of design simulation in Modelsim/Questa and scripting workflow
  • Strong understanding of Xilinx workflow (SDAccel, Vivado, HLS)
  • Strong understanding of the Altera workflow (Quartus, Qsys and tcl)
  • Experience in chip architecting, PLLs and floor planning
  • Preferably a background in Broadcast video processing/encoding and signal processing
  • Willingness to independently and rapidly learn new subjects at the level of depth and rigor that is needed to progress development activities
  • An understanding of C++ to support verification activities
  • Experience of development methodologies such as Agile and willingness to prioritise development activities in accordance with commercial priorities
