Job Title: Configuration System Characterization Engineer 154051

Primary Location United States-California-San Jose
Job: Hardware Engineering
Schedule: Full-time
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


Xilinx is forging ahead in higher integration of FPGA's, processors, and integrated peripherals.  Come join the team to make these exciting products a reality. 


Configuration has ever increasing flexibility, and consequently complexity, in order to fit the growing markets of SOC processor plus custom logic and datacenter where accelerators are loaded and re-loaded continuously.

The GOQ Characterization Product Engineer will be responsible for configuration characterization of Xilinx FPGA and SOC products. 


As SOC products evolve to have more dominant processor features and more disguised FPGA features, the startup and SRAM loading procedure is also evolving. 


This evolution is moving from a pure logic baseline to a shared firmware plus logic interdependency.  This position will require experience with processors and firmware to load and reload configuration data for the FPGA as a memory mapped peripheral.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Determine timing margin for every access point for FPGA configuration
  • Write custom firmware to apply timing stress as needed to the logic interfaces
  • Support firmware templates for other characterization purposes



  • BSEE/BSCE/BSCS or equivalent required
  • 7 years experience with processors/controllers and firmware
  • Capability with Xilinx Vivado preferred
  • Experience with FPGA's preferred
