How you will contribute:
Reporting to the Director, Systems Design Architecture Engineering, as a Senior Optical DSP Systems Engineer, you will be part of the Modem Digital Signal Processing Team involved in the design, modeling and testing of current and next-generation high-speed optical systems.
You will review and finalize functional designs, provide system feedback, make architecture suggestions to enable integration of standalone functions, and identify and fill in missing specifications through simulations, lab testing, and/or consultation with PLM- and systems teams.• You will coordinate and schedule modeling effort, code reviews, and code integration.• You will co-architect and contribute to system simulator (Wave) used for hardware model quality assurance, aligning model verification activities between system/DSP/EO/link-budget teams.• You will coordinate the architecture and design of firmware prototypes: calibration, ASIC initialization, startup- and mission-mode state machines, feedback control loops.• You will schedule firmware feature roll-out, firmware verification, performance optimization, and robustness testing.• You will provide field support, offering failure root-cause analyses, investigations and work to alleviate performance issues.• You will coordinate new feature requests for legacy products: updating specifications and prototypes, involving firmware and software teams, and directing designer and system testing.
What does the company expect of you?
Initiative – you’re a self-starter who works with limited direction and is committed to delivering against aggressive deadlines.• Agility – you are readily able to make key decisions and manage competing and ever-changing account priorities.• Communication expertise – you have the ability to influence and tailor your message and ideas to the audience to ensure understanding and consensus.• The flexibility to work independently and as part of a broader team – you thrive in a multi-disciplinary team environment, but are comfortable working independently as required.• A commitment to innovation – you keep abreast of the market and competitive developments and are always keen to formulate new ideas and problem solve.
The Must Haves:
Graduate or Post-graduate degree in Physics or Engineering with focus on digital hardware, communication- and/or control systems coupled with demonstrated experience in all aspects of the ASIC design process: architecture, design, modeling, prototyping, verification, integration, control and optimization.• Well-versed in DSP design, feedback control, digital filtering, optical- and digital communications• Programming skills - Matlab and C++ experience. • Experience in ESD-protected lab environment; familiar with standard lab equipment such as oscilloscopes, signal generators, network analyzers, power supplies, and spectrum analyzers.• Proven debugging- and problem-solving skills.• Team leadership experience with a willingness to coach and support junior and experienced DSP designers.
Assets:• SystemC, CatapultC, Verilog. Must be willing to learn CatapultC and/or similar hardware system design languages.• Detailed knowledge of ASIC design trade-offs: performance, power, size
