    FPGA Sage / Digital Design Engineer

    We seek an experienced and daring digital designer for FPGA prototyping and development -- someone who knows how to tame complex designs and enjoys working outside their comfort zone. Experience with numerical analysis and graphics is a major plus, as is good taste in music.

     

    Successful candidates will have an MS or BS in EE or related fields, and will have several years of experience within the design and implementation of FPGA projects. Candidates should be ready to try crazy new ideas and to thrive in the company of hard working lunatics, while working on seemingly impossible tasks. This position has a lot of freedom and a lot of responsibility on a team that's trying something very new -- every member needs to contribute and deliver. Rapid prototyping and short iteration cycles are part of our core beliefs. You can live on the cutting edge of ambiguity as you figure stuff out. This is not the kind of job where your specs are given to you.

     

    PL&H is a venture-backed startup located in Pasadena, CA that has received surprising levels of funding to do seemingly magical things. We offer the usual benefits: competitive salary and stock options, health insurance, 401k with matching, daily lunches, etc. Extraneous interests in plants, engines and curing meats a bonus.


    Requirements:

    Adept at using hardware description languages such as Verilog, VHDL, or System Verilog
    Strong understanding of high-speed logic design, FPGA timing constraints and timing closure
    Experience in building pipeline architectures and very high throughput systems
    Talent for simulating and validating designs
    Familiarity with C/C++, Tcl, and Python
    Knowledge of communications protocols such as I2C, SPI, UART, USB, PCIe, etc.

    Bachelor's degree in EE or related field, Master's or PhD is a plus
    United States work authorization

     

    Bonus Points:

    Proficiency with Xilinx UltraScale chips and Vivado tools
    Experience in numerical analysis and implementation of fixed point algorithms
    Experience with graphics and video systems


    Key words: FPGA, digital design, Verilog, VHDL, embedded systems, firmware

    Wanted: Mechanical and Thermal Engineer, IC Packaging

    We are developing novel IC and opto-electronic assemblies which include interesting problems in packaging, assemblies and thermal management. We seek someone to help us work on these technologies. Successful candidates will work with cross-functional teams of IC designers, PCB and embedded designers, Optical Engineers, physicists and even the odd chemist!

     

    Candidates should have a BS or MS in Material or Mechanical Engineering — or equivalent demonstrated practical experience — and at least 5 years of work in mechanical and thermal design of integrated circuit packaging.

     

    Desirable qualifications:

    · State of the art know-how in simulation of IC and package temperature

    · State of the art knowledge in heat dissipation at both the chip level and at the package / PCB level

    · Experience in opto-electronics, MEMS or panel design for the display industry

    · Experience in 3D IC / stacked chip assemblies

    · Some education and experience in micro-fabrication (VLSI, MEMS, etc..)

    · Understanding of chip packaging reliability test condition, criteria and defects

    · Experience and interest in hands-on work in class 100 clean room
