# of Openings:
Open to visa candidates?
Why is the position open? What is the level of urgency to fill?
-They have dsp engineers that write code in matlab, which is a software test to see if algorithm will work. FBGA engineers take those algorithms and make them work in the real world. C++ is too slow. Hardware is way faster than what can be run in a typical computer. Without these engineers they cant deliver hardware
-people come from digital systems/design background
What are the top 3 tasks or responsibilities this candidate will be required to do on a day-to-day basis?
-hdl development (hardware description language) Verilog, systemverilog, vhdl
-working with dsp engineers to translate matlab into hdl. Just need to know some hdl language
-also testing their own code (module development/unit testing)
-module dev, integration, and testing
Force rank the top three (3) tech skills a candidate would need to succeed and min number of years of experience with each skill:
-being able to read and understand matlab code that someone else has written. Take that matlab and make into hardware
-experience with dsp on fbga’s
-great attitude about learning
-understanding digital signal processing in FBGA’s
-designing a motive in hardware is awesome

-They aren’t just tacking onto existing technology. What they are doing is completely new and never been done before. “Breaking new ground.”
-The People who came up with this technology understand how FBGA’s work, and know they need to design algorithms to work that way. They are all working on a team towards a common goal.
