Job Description

This is an R&D Position for FPGA Design for our industry leading system level tester platform for Solid State Storage industry. Successful candidate will be responsible for all aspects of FPGA Design from concept to Design release: feature definition and architecture, design implementation, functional verification, synthesis, timing closure, hardware verification and qualification for production readiness. Design areas include Advantest proprietary IP as well as designs based on industry standard technologies such as DDR DRAM, serial and parallel busses such as PCI Express, I2C,I3C, SMBus, SATA, SAS  etc.) . These FPGA designs provide control, data processing and algorithmic pattern generation capabilities for Advantest’s multi-protocol SSD test platform. 


Responsibilities include:

  • Develop detailed FPGA architecture and definition from high level requirements.
  • Implement FPGA based design for functional blocks.
  • Simulation and design verification at block and system level
  • Synthesis and Timing closure
  • Hardware Debug and verification
  • Work closely with other team members (FPGA, Software, Electrical and Applications Engineers) to resolve issues


  • BS/MS EE or equivalent with 15+ years of experience. 
  • Excellent understanding of fundamentals of digital logic design and computer architectures.
  • Experience with industry standard serial and parallel   protocols such: PCIe, SMBus, I2C, I3C etc. .
  • Extensive experience with high performance FPGA design, timing closure and debugging.
  • Proven track record of taking a strong role on at least one significant FPGA from concept to completion. 
  • Verilog code expertise a must. Familiarity with TCL or other scripting language strongly preferred. Additional coding experience with "C", PERL, shell scripts considered a plus
  • Extensive experience with Altera or Xilinx tool chain and IPs. Experience with Vivado and Modelsim a plus.
  • Must have good communication and organizational skills and able to self manage.
  • Excellent team work and interpersonal skills; ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team (FPGA, Software, Electrical and Applications engineers)
  • Passion for building best in class products.
  • Eligible to work in the United States
