FPGA Developer(Up to 25% Profit Sharing Benefit!)

Job Description

BITS, a CACI Company, offers very rewarding and unique benefits, which equates to 50% of compensation on TOP of your base salary! The first part is a tax-qualified profit-sharing retirement plan, to which BITS annually contributes up to 25% of your base salary (not in excess of applicable IRS limits) to your retirement account. The second component consists of BITS' Individual Benefit Account (IBA), which is used for premiums, medical reimbursements, dependent care, education and Paid Time Off (PTO) policy. Both components of the BITS benefit package are paid for by BITS, in addition to your base salary and potential performance bonuses. We believe in a healthy home/work balance and both of our locations offer a wide variety of activities to balance with your work life. Learn more at

If you enjoy creating an FPGA development environment for new hardware architectures by integrating the Firmware Development Kit (FDK), design tools, and cores appropriate for the particular hardware version, then this is the job for you. Join CACI to work with a team of like minded people on the exciting BITS program.

What You’ll Get to Do:  

  • Within the FDK create an initial design flow example and evaluate its performance synthesized on the FPGA hardware resulting in a design flow test bench. 
  • Initial design flows consist of wrapper code encompassing a top-level module and interface modules adhering to the Sponsor’s standard design guidelines governing interface and port naming conventions, use of generics and parameters and heavy emphasis on maximizing code re-use to increase design efficiency.
  • Maintain a configuration managed repository of such initial designs and subsequent derivations. 
  • Leverage the library of initial design flow templates to implement specific custom processing code blocks (modules) implemented in Very High Speed Integrated Circuit (VHSIC) Hardware Description Language (VHDL) packages. 
  • Design and implement functional simulation tests at module and wrapper code levels using design flow test bench. 
  • Aid systems engineers in integrating the FPGA synthesized design into hardware architectures for operational use.
  • Leverage extensive knowledge of digital video codec standards and implementations
  • Apply extensive subject matter expertise in digital video codecs to assess the performance of non-standard deviations and unique custom formats
  • Collaborate with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) laboratory developers to prototype innovative tool sets supporting analysis and evaluation of digital video codecs
  • Perform technical analysis of data
  • Create written reports summarizing effectiveness of codecs
  • Create detailed presentations documenting analysis techniques

You’ll Bring These Qualifications:  

  • Active TS//SCI clearance with polygraph
  • Bachelor’s Degree (or higher) in Electrical Engineering or equivalent training or work experience
  • Intermediate (or higher) Level work experience with FPGA programming equating to Bachelor’s degree and 5 years’ experience, Master’s degree and 3years’ experience, Associate’s degree and 7 years’ experience, or Highschool/GED and 9 years’ experience
  • Familiarity with contemporary switching technology and protocols implementing commercial telephony and network services
  • Understanding of error correcting strategies adopted by various communication protocols
  • Understanding of hardware description schemes such as VHDL

These Qualifications Would be Nice to Have:  

  • Configuration Management experience
  • Experience developing design standards for increased code re-use

What We can Offer You:

  • We’ve been named a Best Place to Work by the Washington Post.
  • Our employees value the flexibility at CACI that allows them to balance quality work and their personal lives.
  • We offer competitive benefits and learning and development opportunities.
  • We are mission-oriented and ever vigilant in aligning our solutions with the nation’s highest priorities.
  • For over 55 years, the principles of CACI’s unique, character-based culture have been the driving force behind our success.
