FPGA RTL Design Engineer

As part of Keysight the Network Applications and Security group (NAS) provides testing, visibility, and security solutions, strengthening applications across physical and virtual networks for enterprises and governments, service providers and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs).

You will join a highly talented and motivated team of hardware and software engineers creating a state-of-the-art wireline Ethernet test systems. Based on the very latest generation of FPGAs and multi-core CPUs test instruments must stay ahead of mainstream offerings to test equipment and networks before deployment.  Driven by the ever increasing bandwidth demands from hyperscale data centers and carrier networks test equipment must constantly support the highest speeds well before they are commercially available.  You have the opportunity to contribute to new and emerging technologies as well as advancing the functionality of existing technologies while working with line speeds up to 800Gb and beyond.

NAS is looking for an experienced FPGA designer to work on the wireline Ethernet test products.  We work on cutting-edge technologies and standards with FPGA logic running at 600+ MHz and line speeds of 800G+.
