SRI's Center for Advanced Imaging Electrical Engineering Team based in Princeton, NJ, is seeking innovative and highly motivated individuals to join us in the development of state-of-the-art FPGA and IC designs for numerous commercial, spacecraft, and government applications. The ideal candidate would join a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the development of complex electronics for applications such as low light imaging cameras, space base imaging cameras, and LiDAR cameras, including ROIC and Imagers for those applications.
Responsibilities of the position include:
Digital logic design using RTL (Verilog preferred or VHDL), verification and documentation of detailed design solutions that involve FPGA, SOC, or ROIC implementations. This includes high speed digital designs that interface to DDR memory systems as well as high speed digital interfaces (1GHz+) and high speed SERDES interfaces (>1.5 GHz) as well as complex FSM and control logic for these applications.
Collaboration with Analog IC designers, HW PCB designers, Software developers, and Mechanical team members to produce high quality designs.
Design and development of test benches and quality/test requirements for each design.
Set up laboratory equipment and experiments as needed to accurately measure performance of the developed designs, develop accurate and reliable tests methods, systems, and procedures across R&D, prototype, and production HW platforms. Accurately and concisely present characterization results to clients, colleagues, designers, and managers.
Ideally the candidate would live local to the Princeton NJ office and able to go on-site once a week, but we are open to a fully remote worker as well.
Qualifications & Requirements

At least 5-10 years of related experience
Due to government contract requirements candidates must be a US Citizen
Strong understanding of digital logic design and verification.
RTL coding languages required (Verilog) and simulation expertise using common tools
Fluent with basic MS Office products including Visio
Video and imaging application experience desirable, including camera or imager design for visible and LiDAR type cameras/applications.
RTL coding languages – System Verilog, VHDL
Experience with simulation tools like Mentor Modelsim, Cadence Xcelium, Xilinx Vivado, etc
Understanding of physical implementation a plus, including logic synthesis and/or place and route
