PSG - Design Engineer - External Memory Interface

Job Description

Intel's Programmable Solutions Group PSG IP Engineering team PIPE develops comprehensive solutions to provide customers easy and efficient access to the capabilities of Intel's FPGA devices. These solutions are provided as highly-configurable intellectual property IP cores that are fully integrated with Intel PSG's software CAD tool, Quartus II.  External Memory Interface IP EMIF is one category of important IP Cores. While FPGAs do have on-chip embedded memory, it is of limited capacity. Many end market applications require storage or buffering of large amounts Gigabytes of memory, and thus an external memory interface becomes a critical component of most electronic systems.

Intel PSG's External Memory Interface IP cores provide configurable access to these high-speed, high-bandwidth external memory devices. The constantly rising speed and complexity of memory devices presents a challenging design problem that requires innovation in hardware design, a strong knowledge of system timing, and an understanding of customer flows and applications.  As an External Memory Interface IP Design Engineer, you will work with a team of engineers to develop and verify state-of-the-art External Memory Interface IP cores, such as DDR4 and HBM interfaces. You will be working on advanced device architectures, design definition, implementation and verification. You will also be developing design examples and simulation models, accompanied by a rich set of technical documentation.

 Your specific responsibilities will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Architecture and Design based on latest memory protocol specifications.
  • RTL development.
  • Device support and CAD tool integration.
  • Verification e.g. verification IP, methodologies, framework, bus functional models, regression tests.
  • New product release or rollout support.
  • Customer technical support.

The candidate should possess the below behavioral traits: 

  • Strong skills in communication, initiative, innovation and teamwork.
  • Highly motivated to learn and adapt to fast-changing technologies and environments.
  • Demonstrating fundamental values such as accountability, integrity and a winning mindset


You must possess the minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Relevant experience can be obtained through school work, classes and project work, internships, military training, and/ or work experience. This is an entry level position and will be compensated accordingly.

Minimum Requirements:
- The candidate must have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or any related field.
- At a Bachelor's level, applicants must have a legal right to work in Canada without requiring sponsorship.

Minimum 6 months of experience in the following:
- RTL design with Verilog and/or VHDL.
- RTL verification and timing analysis/closure.
- Software engineering and scripting languages.
