Job Type: Permanent, Full Time

Salary: £50000 - £60000/annum

This company designs and sells electronic-scanning ground radar systems for national border security, counter-drone, perimeter security, wide area surveillance and coastline security. Our radars have a reputation for performance and reliability, protecting lives and critical assets worldwide. As an SME, we are able to develop and adapt our designs quickly in response to user requirements. Based in Great Chesterford just south of Cambridge, we are easy to reach by car and only two minutes' walk from the nearest rail station.

The Role

We are currently going through a major product update to extend the family of radars. We are introducing enhanced performance and new capabilities that includes updates to FPGAs and other programmable logic across the entire radar family.

You will be part of a small and highly skilled multidisciplinary engineering team with full responsibility for digital signal processing. This will include modelling, coding, verification, testing, and deployment of new FPGA designs for our latest advanced radar products.

We believe that close teamwork and communication is essential to the design, development and delivery of our radar systems, and therefore we offer hybrid working to allow a mix of collaborative working and engineering focus.

Key responsibilities

* Take the lead on DSP system design and architecture.
* Design, develop and verify FPGA code (VHDL or Verilog), using Xilinx design tools.
* Design software for test and verification of FPGA code.
* Take the lead on field trials of signal processing performance.
* Generate design documentation for communication and dissemination across the engineering team.

Qualifications, experience and skills

* Engineering or other technical degree (or equivalent combination of experience and education).
* Development experience using Xilinx design tools such as Vivado, targeted at Zynq MPSoC or similar.
* Experience of implementing signal processing algorithms with high-speed I/O in FPGA.
* Understanding of the design of high-speed digital circuits for real-time systems.
* Experience of design verification by both simulation (SystemVerilog or similar) and hardware testing.
* Experience of software design using C/C++, Python, or Rust.
* Proficient using test equipment such as oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers, signal generators, etc.
* Excellent interpersonal and written communication skills to allow efficient hybrid office/home collaborative working.

Additional desirable requirements

* Knowledge of radar, sonar, or similar sensor systems.
* Understanding of radar signal processing techniques.
* Embedded Linux C/C++ development.
* Familiarity with Yocto and/or Petalinux build systems.
* Familiarity with Xilinx HLS.

The Rewards

In return, we offer an excellent package and a stimulating environment that will encourage you to perform to the best of your ability. Salary and job title will be based on experience and expertise. We shall provide the training, professional development and support that you need to effectively complete your projects
