Job Description

Description

Xilinx is the world's leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs. These industry-leading devices are coupled with a next-generation design environment and IP to serve a broad range of customer needs, from programmable logic to programmable systems integration. Our All Programmable devices underpin today's most advanced electronics. Among the broad range of end markets we serve are:

  • Aerospace/Defense
  • Automotive
  • Broadcast
  • Consumer
  • High Performance Computing
  • Industrial / Scientific / Medical (ISM)
  • Wired
  • Wireless

 

Oversee definition, design, verification, and documentation for Xilinx ASIC and tool development. Determine architecture design, logic design, and system simulation. Specifically, works on advanced development team responsible for building prototypes of next generation architectures and tools. Participate in the implementation of compilers, runtimes, drivers, debuggers, and parallel programming APIs for hybrid CPU+ FPGA computing systems. Perform application driven validation of the parallel programming frameworks and architectures, and benchmark area, performance, and power of parallel applications. Conduct prototyping of heterogeneous computing architectures. Lead customer workshops. Quickly understand complex customer requirements in novel wireless communication and image processing applications and propose custom FPGA-based hardware designs and compiler tools. Develop prototype hybrid CPU + FPGA designs (Designs generally consist of general purpose processors, special purpose processors, application specific FPGA or ASIC accelerators as well as customized interconnect and memory architectures). Prototype compilation and scheduling Tools for hardware accelerators that utilize automatic tiling, memory allocation and parallelization transformations. Involved in the development of languages, intermediate representations, and ABIs for vector, VLIW, and thread level parallel processor architectures. Inform and influence engineering decision-makers and advise the CTO on the direction of new compiler tools and architecture. Develop scheduling algorithms and constraint-driven compilation tools.
