The Role:

Create FPGA solutions to support Amazon Project Kuiper's satellite communication system. This is a unique opportunity to define a groundbreaking new system with few legacy constraints. The Sr. FPGA design engineer will work with systems teams to define/develop/implement/test/release FPGA based solutions to enable Project Kuiper. This will focus on creating digital designs for networking functions using the latest generations of FPGA technologies and modern FPGA design processes and tools.

In this role you will:
• Create and release FPGAs through the development phases of uArchitecture-RTL Design-Physical Implementation-Timing Closure-Simulation Validation- Lab Based Silicon Validation
• Collaborate with network communication system architects to define and design/implement/test/release/support networking functions targeted to FPGA technology
• Collaborate with Digital Communications/RF/Signal Processing system architects and design engineers to implement digital logic functions in FPGA technology
• Collaborate with system architects and design engineers to implement digital logic functions in FPGA prototypes to validate/tradeoff architecture & design alternatives
• Collaborate with systems architects, HW engineering design teams & FW/SW design teams to bring up and test systems combining FPGA, firmware, RF, and Networking functions.
• Drive trade-off analysis to benefit customer experience and optimization of target technology resources for cost/size/power/performance/features
