Job Description

Description

Video is becoming a key workload in Datacenters. Existing architectures are performing sub-optimally for highly complex video workloads like h.264, HEVC and VP9 encoding. FPGAs are programmable, low power and offer significant acceleration capabilities.

 

Job Description:

 

Xilinx is looking for an energetic and motivated recent graduate software engineer with video background to join a growing, talented, and innovative team at our San Jose headquarters. The successful candidate will be part of the video R&D team developing video processing solutions, including next generation video encoding technologies.

  • Contribute to the design of an AV1 encoder, its functional models and data structures for efficient hardware and software implementation.

  • Be an expert in C level coding and debugging and optimizing software modules for performance improvement for Xilinx platforms.

  • Participate in developing drivers and/or APIs for the encoder, aligned with the software architectural framework requirements and application frameworks like FFmpeg

  • Support the creation of test benches and hardware validation test to verify and validate the compliance of the encoder to design requirements and Xilinx IP design standards

Qualifications:

  • Proficient in C/C++. 

  • Course work in digital image/video processing and video encoding technologies.

  • Direct experience with a range of computer systems, especially Linux, FFMPEG, scripting, e.g. Python, Perl, TCL.
