DarbeeVision Inc. is seeking a senior FPGA designer to work on the development of an existing image and video processing software algorithm and the associated hardware implementations and external IP integrations. You will be expected to learn the current algorithms, architectures and explore new technologies and product concepts.


  • Continue with the designing and implementation of video processing FPGA architectures for the implementation in different FPGA platforms
  • Coordinate interoperability of digital modules with embedded image processing hardware, firmware, software
  • Developand improve existing Verilog modules, reuse and integrate IP modules
  • Define hardware and firmware interfaces, protocols
  • Interface with microcontrollers, security ICs and EEPROMs
  • Perform power, size and utilization optimization
  • Emulate FPGAs in systems, validate designs
  • Debug product, test and resolve design issues on hardware platforms

Detailed Skill Requirements:

Design Experience: FPGA System on a Chip (SoC) architecture definition and partitioning, algorithm implementation, HW/SW interfaces, PCB interfaces, and design for in-system test.

Device Experience: Altera/Intel FPGA background. Microcontroller experience (PIC, STM32 ARM, and NiosII).

Tools and Languages: Altera/Intel Design Tools (Quartus), C/C++, PC and Linux environments, Modelsim tools, and configuration management tools.

Verification Experience: Creation of HDL-based test benches. High-level language simulation environment a plus.

Specific Technology Experience: High-speed HDMI transceivers, image/signal processing, implementing processing functions (fixed point, pipeline, parallelism), and chip-to-chip interfaces.

Hardware Test Experience: Vendor debugging tools (Altera Quartus) and design of synthesizable test code and traps.
