Job Description

As an FPGA Developer at Facebook AR/VR team and Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), you will design, build, and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer mixed reality products/experiences. You will become part of a cross-functional team exploring new concepts through fast iterative prototyping. The team will typically include electrical, mechanical, optical, firmware, software, and research experts. We are looking for people who work well across disciplines, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, are able to drive a concept into a prototype, and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product.

As an FPGA expert, you will create interfaces to camera modules and implement image processing algorithms. This will require advanced knowledge and intimate familiarity with all stages of the FPGA design process including simulation, floor planning, timing closure, and in-system debugging. A strong mathematical/programming background will be necessary for high performance algorithm implementation on FPGA. Typically, Xilinx or Altera parts will be used so knowledge of their toolchains and architectural features is required. Finally, the FPGA design must be debugged in a larger system context which requires familiarity with standard debugging tools/techniques. Ideal candidate will have experience with MIPI/LVDS camera inputs and image processing applications.


* Convert a computer vision and/or image signal processing algorithm into an FPGA implementation using SystemVerilog and Xilinx/Altera toolchains

Optimize FPGAs for timing closure

Define interface requirements for FPGAs in an imaging system context

Build vendor-neutral FPGA/RTL designs intended to prototype ASIC implementations

Collaborate in a team environment across multiple engineering disciplines

Specify & select component specification and selection


* BS in digital system design, Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience

4+ years of FPGA experience

4+ years of experience in Xilinx/Altera parts, tool chains, Verilog or VHDL

Experience with circuit design in one or more of these areas: high speed differential circuits, microcontrollers, microprocessors, firmware, display engineering, digital signal processing, real-time image processing, camera modules, knowledge of CIS-2, MIPI C/D-PHY, I2C/I3C, and advanced interface standard

Experience in C, creating initial system bring-up, debugging, and test codes

Experience in other languages like Python/Java/C#
