Job description

  • You will work on the design of FPGA-based (Field-Programmable Gate Array) hardware platforms used to validate & characterize novel CMOS image sensors.
  • Your responsibilities cover a broad scope ranging from FPGA architecture, VHDL-based design & simulation, generation of builds, hands-on bring-up of new hardware platforms in close collaboration with board and software engineers, assist in debug & characterization of new CMOS image sensor prototypes (and production runs) on your hardware platforms.
  • Although the prime focus is an FPGA-based design environment, your thorough upfront analysis, documented and first-time-right approach is critical for a quality focused collaboration in a team of experts that depend on your crucial contributions in a project driven organization.
  • You will have a significant amount of autonomy and will take up impactful responsibilities in the team.


  • Master in (Micro-)Electronics Engineering, Physics or equivalent experience.
  • Hands-on experience with FPGA technology & (Xilinx) tool flow, VHDL design, HW-SW co-simulation, on-board bring-up and debug, while interacting with image sensor experts.
  • Hands-on experience with electronic test & measurement equipment.
  • Understanding of digital and analog electronics, at board and (CMOS) chip level.
  • Capable of working with C# software and Python scripting or other languages.
  • Creativity, an analytical mind and pragmatic problem-solving skills.
  • Excellent communication skills in English writing, presenting and customer interaction.
  • Accountable & committed quality-focused team player.
  • Background in test & measurement of analog & digital semiconductors.
  • Background of high speed interface protocols, ADC technology & memory standards is a plus.
  • Background in Silicon processing and CMOS technology.
  • Background in Optics and Solid-state Physics.
  • Experience in image sensors, their applications, camera or instrument design is a plus.
  • Experience in electro-optical characterization or evaluation of image sensors is a plus.


  • A competitive compensation & benefits package.
  • A competitive & international context of world-leading companies.
  • A technological playground within a mixed-skilled, multi-cultural team of experts.
  • A continuous focus on learning at Caeleste University.
