Firmware Consultant Engineer



  • Develop the embedded firmware for a MEMS based product. The applicant must be knowledge and able to program in state of the art FPGAs. The applicant must be able to proposed the specific FPGA development system that will be used and identify and capital costs associated with the tasks. It is an added benefit if applicant has access to their own FPGA development tools.
  • The FPGA tasks are to perform high-speed ,real-time closed loop control of a MEMS sensor that  involves interfaces with low noise analog and digital electrical sensor circuits and  interface with design and knowledge of various operating systems, potentially including Real Time Operating systems (RTOSs) for processors and Windows based I/O. The position may require some knowledge of or exposure to electrical design and knowledge of current software development methodologies.
  • Support the design and implement data processing algorithms in a FPGA/PC based environment and perform basic MATLAB simulations that lead to the code. Participate in development and refining algorithms as part of a team
  • Provide new software/firmware development and debugging.
  • Implement use of new technologies, cost saving techniques and materials.
  • Work with appropriate test groups to ensure specifications and schedules are met
  • Participate in internal research and development (IRAD) and one-of-a-kind developments for deployment as field released prototypes


  • Must have strong embedded firmware design, coding, and debugging experience.
  • Bachelors’ degree in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, or other related field.
  • Three years minimum of FPGA based product development experience including in embedded firmware development with experience in closed loop control, filter design, and FFT.
  • Requires experience with Assembly and C languages (C++, Visual Basic, and/or Visual C++ is a plus
  • Knowledge of PIC processors, TI MSP 430 and microprocessors and other programmable devices is a plus.
  • Knowledge of various bus architectures, such as USB, 1394, and VHDL is required
  • Fairly strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to make public presentations.
