|Applied Technology is a prototyping center within Motorola’s Government and Public Safety Business. We create proof-of-concept and low-volume specialty products for government and private industry focused on both custom and commercial wireless communications standards including GSM, CDMA2K, W-CDMA, WiMAX, WiFi, and LTE. Our customer-centric, team-based environment provides an excellent growth opportunity for engineers and developers in enterprise markets where innovation is the primary focus.|
You will be a member of a small (1-6 person) multi-disciplinary team, and will be responsible for architecting/implementing/testing FPGA-based signal processing solutions for a variety of advanced wireless communications products. You will be involved in all phases of projects, from requirements analysis and system architecture, through coding, test bench design, verification, synthesis and FPGA place and route. You will have regular interaction with customers, and will also be responsible for mentoring junior-level FPGA developers.
You will work closely with software developers and you will have a hands-on role in product integration and debugging. You must be a flexible, results-oriented problem-solver who requires minimal supervision. Projects can vary greatly from one to the next, so you must thrive on variety and enjoy taking on new challenges.
Depending on your skills and interests, you may also be involved in additional hardware engineering tasks including design, component selection, schematic entry, FPGA/CPLD design, and validation of the entire product.
