A growing company who is working with a giant within the electronics industry is seeking a Senior FPGA Engineer to join their development team. We are looking for a Senior FPGA Engineer with significant floor planning experience to improve the operating frequencies for our large, generated, FPGA designs.

Job Title: Senior FPGA Design Engineer
Job Type: Contract
Length: 6 Months +
Rate: £40 to £55 GBP per hour
Location: Cambridge, United Kingdom

You will be tasked to solve the following problem:
You will work with our compiler development team to improve FPGA resource usage, achieve timing closure, and automate the floor planning and constraint generation process. You will work with our machine learning experts and lead architect to develop novel circuit implementations for machine learning algorithms.

Responsibilities:
*FPGA Floor planning for our generated designs
*Develop high-quality circuit design and architecture
*Achieve operating frequencies close to FPGA fabric Fmax for generated designs
*Identify, prioritize and execute tasks in the circuit development life cycle
*Automate tasks through appropriate tools and scripting
*Perform validation and verification testing

Skills & Qualifications:
*High level of experience in achieving timing closure in complex for high speed designs targeted at
*large FPGA devices, developing timing constraints (xdc, sdc), using manual floor planning (Logic Lock, Pblock, RPM) where appropriate
*Digital design including interfacing to hardware, peripherals and processors
*VHDL, particularly targeting Altera /Intel devices (including SoC devices)

If this position matches your experience or you would like to discuss further, please respond with your updated CV to discuss further.
