Job description

For the next expansion step, 3Brain is looking for a full-time FPGA engineer to
reinforce our R&D team. You will help develop new embedded systems for high-
speed data acquisition devices and improve and maintain the existing product
line. You will be responsible for fetching data from high-speed ADCs or to
stream to high-speed DACs. You will design IP cores for complex signal
processing and hardware accelerators. You will also provide the necessary FPGA
infrastructure to communicate with hardware peripherals (SPI, UART, I2C, etc.).
In particular, your tasks involve:

  • Developing FPGA projects with Intel Quartus and Platform Designer.

  • Creating hardware-accelerators for our embedded systems and
    architectures with self-checking testbenches (VHDL).

  • Integrating FPGA modules for peripheral control (SPI, UART, I2C, etc.).

  • Coding the hardware abstraction layer for custom FPGA Ip cores (C/C++).

  • Maintenance of the existing VHDL code base.

Required Qualifications

Nobody knows it all, if you miss some qualification but you are willing to learn
you should still apply.

  • BSc/MSc in Electrical Engineering or similar.

  • FPGA development tools such as Intel Quartus Prime or Xilinx Vivado.

  • VHDL-2008 proficiency.

  • VUnit: a test framework for HDL.

  • FPGA timing constraints with Synopsys Design Constraints (.sdc).

  • Knowledge of embedded systems/systems on chip.

  • Strong commitment to high coding and design/architecture standards and
    best practices.

  • Basic understanding of electronics.

  • Fluency in English.

  • Initiative and independence.

Additional Qualifications

  • VHDL verification libraries such as OSVVM or UVVM.

  • Proficiency in embedded software programming C/C++.

  • Knowledge of the Linux operating system, especially for embedded devices.

  • Verilog and System Verilog.

  • Proficiency in Python programming.

  • Background in signal processing.

What We Offer

  • A dynamic and stimulating work environment driven by a desire to build
    transformational technologies to help others.

  • A young, fast-growing company with plenty of opportunities for personal
    growth and development.

  • Great challenges and adventures in both technical and economical fields.

  • Working place: Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland .It is a beautiful lakeside village
    just outside of Zurich, the country’s main cultural, financial and business
