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 in order to validate 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 and latest advancements well before they are commercially available. You will have the opportunity to contribute to new and emerging technologies while working with line speeds up to 800Gb and beyond.

NAS is looking for an FPGA intern 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 greater than 800Gb. Keysight believes in providing our people with the flexibility to balance their work and personal life, and preform their best. By allowing for hybrid and remote work we foster a culture of exceptional team work and high performance.

This will be a long term co-op internship lasting approximately 6-12 months working onsite in our Burnaby office.
