Industrial Embedded Acceleration FPGA Engineer

Job Description

Intel is looking for an outstanding engineer who wants to develop and promote FPGA-based solutions for customers in the Industrial and Automotive markets. You will work with a local team, industry experts and partner companies, using Agile project management to prioritize and deliver solutions, helping to shape the future of industrial technology.
Applications span the industrial internet of things, from power conversion and electric motor control, through industrial networking, to edge analytics including vision processing, machine learning and interfacing to the Cloud. This role will develop demonstrations of FPGAs doing 'inline acceleration', processing incoming sensor or time-sensitive network (TSN) ethernet messages and calculating control outputs in real-time on the FPGA for reasons of safety or control, while sharing data with a CPU for further processing or transmission over an industrial internet of things. Example applications are machine feedback control over a network or safety monitoring using networked cameras. Such systems are often safety-related so functional safety requirements must also be developed and demonstrated.
FPGA algorithms may be developed in HDL (Verilog or SystemVerilog) or code generation tools such as MathWorks HDL Coder, Intel DSP Builder, OpenCL or OpenVINO for CNN-based algorithms. Systems including the FPGAs may require embedded software development in RTOS or Linux on soft processor, ARM or Intel CPU.
There are opportunities to travel to demonstrate solutions to customers at Intel sites and at key trade shows. The role is based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, close to the M40 motorway, between London and Oxford.
Intel employs over 100,000 people. Intel products support the world's data-centric infrastructure including industrial, communications and networking technology as well as high performance and personal computers. Since the acquisition of Altera in 2015, FPGAs are a key technology for Intel.
Key responsibilities:

  • Work in a team to develop embedded systems for industrial markets using FPGAs
  • Identify and promote the benefits of FPGA-based solutions
  • Showcase Intel's latest devices and programming tools
  • Provide input to Intel's future architectures and products
  • Represent Intel at customers and trade shows


Required :

  • MEng or higher in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent, with excellent results
  • A strong desire to program and promote FPGAs
  • Understanding of embedded systems using CPUs, FPGAs and other hardware
  • FPGA hardware design skills (Verilog/VHDL and system building with IP)
  • Experience of embedded software design and Linux
  • High level analysis skills using MATLAB or similar
  • Keen to support customers with Functional Safety requirements
  • Keen to set goals and deliver output to a high standard
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills
  • A drive to succeed and solve problems along the way
  • Occasional Business travel required

Desirable :

  • Knowledge of DSP, control systems and machine learning

Intel offers a competitive salary & benefits
