DescriptionXilinx develops highly flexible and adaptive processing platforms that enable rapid innovation across a variety of technologies - from the endpoint to the edge to the cloud. Xilinx is the inventor of the FPGA, hardware programmable SoCs and the ACAP (Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform), designed to deliver the most dynamic processor technology in the industry and enable the adaptable, intelligent and connected world of the future in a multitude of markets including Data Center (Compute, Storage and Networking); Wireless/5G and Wired Communications; Automotive/ADAS; Emulation & Prototyping; Aerospace & Defense; Industrial Scientific & Medical, and others. Xilinx's core strengths simultaneously address major industry trends including the explosion of data, heterogeneous computing after Moore's Law, and the dawn of artificial intelligence (AI).
Xilinx is looking for a talented, self-driven and motivated software engineer to be part of the SDx Application Development team. SDx is Xilinx’s primary software user focused IDE. It is built to accelerate the design and development for Xilinx’s devices. The individual will focus on developing applications for the SDx tools that demonstrates the tool flow and usage for the end customers. These applications are key part of customer experience that enable them to quickly ramp up on SDx development environment and be productive. This is done through a combination of extensive examples, and good programming practices to extract the most out of the tools.
As a member of this high-performance team, the selected candidate will be responsible for identifying and implementing software applications to showcase the SDx tools. The candidate will understand the C based high level synthesis paradigm and its usage in targeting Xilinx devices. The candidate will also understand parallel programming paradigms like OpenCL and CUDA and development example applications. The candidate will do application profiling, identifying software code that is a good candidate for acceleration on programmable logic and then retargeting those functions using the SDx tools. The candidate will have opportunity to work on both datacenter and/or embedded domain.
The team provides a fast-paced, start-up like environment offering each individual immense opportunity to interact with a wide variety of people including from other organizations, and truly learn and grow their skills and capabilities. The candidate will have opportunity to interact with Xilinx field engineers and marketing team to understand variety of customer scenario and propose solutions either through tool improvement or through improved software coding patterns. The candidate will also work closely with SDx development team to understand various features, give suggestions from customer perspective, and help prioritize features.
