Our products are deployed all over the world, from the ground to exoatmospheric environments and into space. We are responsible for the architecture, design, and documentation of deliverable FPGA embedded processing at Raytheon.
In this role you will develop FPGA designs for all major vendors and device families including: Xilinx, Altera, 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.
What You Will Do:

  • Deliver production-quality FPGA releases from initial proof of concept to production.
  • 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.
  • Help drive projects and execute program schedules on time and budget.
  • Create complete documentation including requirements, verification plans, and user's guides.
  • May manage moderately sized projects or processes
  • Typically viewed as subject-matter expert within discipline
  • Able to operate with minimal oversight from manager
