  • Minimum 3 years of experience in digital system design

    Desired Characteristics:
  • Minimum 1 year professional VHDL or Verilog design experience
  • Experience with NDT, Industrial or Medical portable system design
  • Graduation from a corporate rotational engineering leadership program
  • Signal processing algorithm development in Matlab or Mathematica
  • Interest and capability to do limited software development in C/C++ as needed to support experiments or microcontroller implementations
  • High speed (>1GHz) electrical design experience
  • ASNT Level II or III equivalency
  • NDT field inspection experience – with an emphasis on power generation, oil & gas or aerospace
  • Proficient in the use of common laboratory equipment, including oscilloscopes and network analyzers
  • Working knowledge of either Xilinx or Altera toolchains, including timing closure
  • Proficient in VHDL or Verilog hierarchical development including test benches for simulation
