Job description/Person specification

QinetiQ is developing two new radar cross section (RCS) measurement radar systems under the RLTPA. One will be ground-based. The other will be fitted to a pod mounted on a helicopter. The systems will be used by QinetiQ to measure the RCS of MOD assets, including ships and aircraft, as part of a long-term core business capability.
A member of staff is required to support the RFSOC / FPGA development activities.

• RFSOC/FPGA Design Engineer to implement complex system algorithms and interfaces in FPGA for Radar System. Applicable project span all levels of maturity from initial concept generation through design, prototype, development, test and transition to production.
• The RFSOC/FPGA Design Engineer will be responsible for development and implementation of complex FPGA designs, test, and verify designs through simulation and lab test.
• These FPGA designs include signal processing across Radar Bands, high data rate interfaces, serial interfaces and complex Control logic.
• Design documentation and test plans will be created and maintained by the Design Engineer.
• Additional duties include leading and participating in small multi-disciplinary teams, working together on a variety of challenging tasks.

Specific Responsibilities
• Development and Implementation of complex high data rate and Radar band, parallel signal processing designs.
• Map system-level requirements and objectives to FPGA specifications
• Validate designs with simulation and verification techniques before hardware integration
• Participate in FPGA development process improvement
• Full life cycle of development and integration of FPGA into hardware system.

Knowledge, skills and Personal Qualities Required
• Experience with FPGA and SOC design entry using Verilog or VHDL
• Experience with design flow for Xilinx or Altera FPGAs
• Experience in Simulation Tools such as ModelSim/Questa, VCS, or Incisive
• Experience in Validation and Verification of HDL code,
• Experience in Software Integration and Testing
• Experience in Writing Design Specification
Desirable Knowledge
• Model Based Engineering Tools (Matlab-Simulink-Stateflow),
• DOORS Requirement writing
• Proficient with Xilinx or Altera SoC platforms
• Proficient with FPGA or ASIC RTL design entry
• Strong background and experience with industry best practices and version control
• Proficient with high-speed memory and interfaces (PCIe, DDR4, Ethernet)
• Proficient with complex timing closure
• Experience with Matlab, C/C++/C#
• Experience with interfacing to high speed DACs and ADCs
• Experience with Digital Signal Processing
• Understanding of RF Systems, specifically Radar or EW
