Senior Electrical Engineer - Radiation Hardening

RTN 2 (Raytheon IDMS)
Huntsville, AL 35801
At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, by combining our vast resources and investments, we are able to dedicate ourselves to solving mission-level vs. product-level customer challenges together we can anticipate more, move faster and make a bigger impact on the big picture.

Job Summary:

The Electrical Engineer will develop FPGA designs for all major vendors and device families including Xilinx, Altera, Lattice, and Microsemi. Designs are implemented using VHDL for the following applications: gigabit serial interfaces, Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Optical (EO) DSP, controls, data links, embedded processing and processor interfaces. Designers work with circuit card designers and systems engineers to develop requirements, architect new parts, collaborative modeling of algorithms, partition and perform code development, simulation, and place and route. Designs are verified against requirements using both directed test and constrained random methodologies. Design support is expected from requirements definition through integration and test. Design documentation and configuration management are required.


Responsibilities to Anticipate:

  • Independently drive projects and execute to program schedules on time and budget
  • Demonstrate self-motivation, with little supervision required
  • Lead small teams and mentor junior engineers
  • Design and deliver production quality FPGA releases from initial proof of concept up to production
  • Work cooperatively with systems, hardware, software engineers, and program management to ensure product success
  • Demonstrate the ability to architect FPGA-based systems to determine parts, interfaces, and Concept of Operations (CONOPS)
  • Translate system level requirements into FPGA requirements
  • Design and code in VHDL for reliability and maintainability
  • Verify designs utilizing self-checking techniques with directed and constrained random tests, while tracking functional and code coverage
  • Create complete documentation including requirements, verification plan, and users guides
  • Support internal and external technical reviews

An advanced degree in a related field may be substituted for additional years of experience as follows: Masters is equal to 2 years of experience or a Ph.D. is equal to 4 years of experience.

Qualification You Must Have:

  • Bachelors in Electrical, Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM)
  • Minimum five (5) years of experience with digital design and VHDL coding.
  • Expertise/experience in FPGA design for radiation-hard or radiation-tolerant arrays
  • Experience with FPGA vendors and device families suitable for radiation-hard and/or radiation-tolerant designs and appropriate tool flows
  • Expertise in delivering FPGA solutions to system level applications
  • Hands on experience with integration and debug
  • U.S. Citizenship is required
The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance

Qualifications We Value:

  • Experience with FPGA design techniques to reduce or eliminate Single Event Effects (SEEs)
  • Experience with Triple Modular Redundancy (TMR) techniques through custom FPGA Register Transfer Level (RTL) and/or synthesis directives
  • Experience using safe hardware design practices specific to FPGAs, including safe encoded Finite State Machines (FSMs)
  • Verification and Validation (V&V) experience with radiation-hard and/or radiation-tolerant FPGA designs, including simulation and/or emulation
  • Experience with design for natural space radiation environment in LEO, MEO and/or GEO orbits
  • Experience with design for man-made or hostile endoatmospheric and/or exoatmospheric radiation environments including electromagnetic pulse
  • Familiarity with MIL-STD-1809, Space Environment for USAF Space Vehicles, requirements
  • Familiarity with Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Experience with concurrent error detection, hamming code, parity code, and/or Built-In Self-Test (BIST) techniques

What We Offer:

Whether youre just starting out on your career journey or are an experienced professional, we offer a robust total rewards package that goes above and beyond with compensation; healthcare, wellness, retirement and work/life benefits; career development and recognition programs. Some of the superior benefits we offer include parental (including paternal) leave, flexible work schedules, achievement awards, educational assistance and child/adult backup care.
