The Role

As the selected Firmware Engineer, you’ll join an expert, multi-disciplined engineering team where you’ll work on the design and validation of high bandwidth embedded systems for a global client base across security and medical.

Responsibilities for the role of Firmware Engineer will include:

  • VHDL and firmware design, with an emphasis on and the integration of these layers to develop high speed digital and mixed signal systems based on FPGAs or embedded processors.
  • Board bring-up and debug, using scopes, analyzers and embedded firmware IDE’s to verify signal integrity, functionality and performance.
  • Development of embedded firmware drivers for FPGA functions and external ASSP devices.
  • Communicate with software engineers to agree APIs and debug test benches.
  • Provision of system and sub-system testing and interface validation for all new designs, ensuring that a design meets the required specifications and represents a robust solution that is suitable for production.
  • Analysis of failures and feeding solutions back into the design flow.
  • Your technical skills and experience should include:
  • Experience of ‘C’ programming for the development of embedded drivers and for system debug.
  • Experience in VHDL or Verilog, and an understanding of FPGA operation and tool-flows.
