Full time
Infinera is looking for a firmware engineer to join the Optical System Group in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Infinera is seeking a Firmware Engineer to join our Optical Systems Group (OSG). The engineer will be responsible for developing test platforms used to characterize the performance of Infinera's next-generation coherent photonic integrated circuits (PICs). The ideal candidate will be prepared to work with early prototype line cards and develop communications and control. These cards typically have approaching 1000 analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog converters which are used to stabilize and optimize the optical performance Your Key Responsibilities Would Include: Infinera develops evaluation boards for early prototype evaluation which have several embedded microcontrollers, for example Xilinx Zynq processor, Xilinx microblaze processor, 8051, or other processor. Each processor plays a specific role in the overall system control, and requires a firmware image tailored to its role in the system. Examples of firmware functionality include external register or command-line interface, implementation of control loops such as PID loops, manipulation of calibration files, readout of analog-to-digital converters (either integrated peripherals or external components), setting of digital-to-analog converters, communications between processors on the same board, and logging of key parameters. A particular interest is the development of novel control algorithms. During the prototyping phase, many issues are anticipated or discovered, and require collaboration with the optical engineering team to solve. We anticipate building robust solutions via algorithm development, often requiring prototyping and iteration to create. We anticipate that using prototyping languages such as Python or Matlab will be a part of this design cycle, followed by final implementation in C. Education & Experience Necessary For Success: BS in Computer Science with minimum of 3 years of industrial experience in control systems. Fluent in C and C++ programming language Understanding of Linux operating system. Understanding of SPI communications. Working knowledge of Verilog for programming Xilinx FPGAs. Programming experience in Matlab and Python desired.
