Title: Senior Signal Processing and VHDL Engineer
Escape Communications is an engineering design and communications equipment company located in the South Bay, a few short miles from Los Angeles County beaches. We provide cutting-edge wireless communications products and design services to the telecommunications and SATCOM industries. Escape is a small company, where engineers get the opportunity to wear many hats and learn many disciplines. We are growing, and we are looking for exceptional, motivated engineers to grow with us. We are currently looking for engineers with skills in signal processing development, electronics hardware design, and embedded software.
Escape Communications develops state-of-the-art signal processing platforms for terrestrial microwave, millimeterwave and SATCOM radio links. These platforms employ highly flexible architectures, with configurable modulation modes ranging from FSK to 4096QAM, and configurable bit rates ranging up to multi-gigabits per second. Advanced features include cross-polarization interference canceling, diversity combining, adaptive modulation & coding, and advanced forward error correction. Flexible Mux and Demux functions allow the combining of multiple line interface types and channels within a single radio link. Our military SATCOM terminal platform products employ complex protected frequency hopped, time permuted TDMA waveforms. Applications include cellular backhaul, broadband wireless access backhaul, high capacity last mile, private networks, as well as commercial and military satellite communications.
Escape is seeking a talented and motivated individual to be a key contributor in signal processing development and implementation on our radio modem products. Responsibilities include algorithm simulation and modeling (primarily C/C++ and Matlab based), Hardware Description Language (VHDL) development and implementation, as well as functional verification of implementation on target hardware platforms. Applicants must have a proven track record of FPGA, ASIC and/or DSP implementations. In-depth understanding of signal processing implementation building blocks such as FIR filters, adder/multiplier architectures, and optimal digital structures is required.
The position requires HDL-based digital design experience (VHDL preferred, Verilog OK), solid C/C++ programming skills, and experience implementing digital logic in commercial FPGAs. A strong educational background in digital signal processing theory is also required. Hands-on lab experience and troubleshooting skills are essential. A solid background in wireless communications theory, as well proficiency with Matlab and Modelsim, are also strongly desired. Experience with Labview is a plus.
A masters degree in EE or CS is required; applicants with Ph.D. are also welcome. Preference will be given to applicants with prior relevant experience.
US citizenship is required.
Escape Communications offers a relaxed work environment and a generous benefits package, including health benefits, flexible vacation time, a 401K retirement plan, and an incentive stock options plan for qualified applicants.
Escape Communications is an equal opportunity employer.
