Engineer: Electrical

Digital Hardware Engineer (Lead)

As a Lead Digital Hardware Engineer at SRC, Inc., you will play a crucial role in the design, implementation, bring-up, and integration of high-end compute and signal processing circuit cards for cutting-edge radar and electronic warfare systems. You will work with the latest processors, FPGAs, memories, and converters and take ownership of digital circuit card designs, that meet mission specific Size, Weight, Power, Cost (SWAP-C) constraints, from concept through production. You will be part of a diverse, cross-functional team of hardware, FPGA, systems, and software engineers creating innovative products that meet the demands of our clients and stay at the cutting-edge of technological advancements in digital design. 
What You’ll Do       

·     Design and develop digital circuit cards with FPGAs (Xilinx, Intel, Microchip), novel processors, high-speed memory, data links, and high-bandwidth converters       

·     Design and schematic capture of custom digital circuit boards       

·     Perform board-level and system-level integration and test of new designs       

·     Support transition of boards and systems to production       

·     Develop test and debug logic for FPGAs (VHDL, Verilog, Python, etc.)       

·     Keep up to date with the latest hardware development tools, technologies, and methods       

·     Generate quick turn prototypes to de-risk key functionality and to support customer demos       


What You’ll Bring       

·     Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or related field       

·     6+ years of experience in digital hardware design and development or related experience       

·     Proficiency with schematic capture tools (e.g., Altium)       

·     Understanding of real-time compute and signal processing hardware solutions       

·     Familiarity with test equipment (multimeters, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, temp chambers, shield rooms, etc.) and basic soldering skills       

·     Ability to work collaboratively in a team environment, with excellent communication skills       

·     Must be U.S. citizen       


Ways to Stand Out      

·     Experience developing control and signal processing algorithms in FPGAs       

·     Experience interfacing with RF circuitry       

·     Experience with SPICE and Signal Integrity board level simulations       

·     Experience with VPX and SOSA circuit card standards       

·     Experience implementing low-level C/C++ for microcontrollers and embedded processors
