Project: FPGA supported new computing paradigm

Data analytics and security protocols are critical components in the modern industrial applications, e.g., Power Grids, Water Supply System. However, the high computational complexity of these components presents a critical challenge towards their broader adoption in real-time and power-efficient scenarios. FPGAs are poised to take a significant role for high-performance and energy-efficient computation. However, implementing effective functionalities onto FPGAs remains problematic. To address these challenges, systematic design solution together with the in-depth domain specific architecture exploration is required.

We are currently looking for a Research Engineer to conduct research and development for new solutions for high performance real-time data processing (including both analytics and encryption/decryption algorithms). This project will deal with cross-level hardware software co-design, and aim to deliver industrial standard deliveries.

The position requires:

  • BS or MS in computer engineering/science, electrical engineering, or a related field.
  • FPGA design experience is a must.
  • Proficient in Python, C/C++ programming and Verilog/VHDL programming.
  • Experience in machine learning related projects is preferred.
  • Good communication skills and able to work under stress.
