Desciption

Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world.

The Role:

Be part of Project Kuiper’s sub-team responsible for defining and implementing the digital chip SOCs for communications via Low Earth Orbit satellites and Amazon gateways. This is a unique opportunity to define a groundbreaking wireless solution with few legacy constraints. The team works with customer requirements and wireless system teams to define modems, high-speed interfaces, embedded processors, and DSP solutions in latest CMOS generation technologies.

In this role you will:

· Implement wireless system architecture in silicon from system specification to chip specification to RTL to optimizing timing / power to chip level validation

· Develop solutions optimizing customer experience (throughput, latency, and availability) while meeting power and cost constraints

· Drive high quality designs for first-time right silicon solutions, and meeting the power objectives

· Create standalone verification test bench to verify the correctness of your block

· Work with the verification team and participate in System level verification using test benches constructed using UVM, System C and DPI-C

· Ensure that the block meets DFT, timing and power targets by working closely with the implementation team

· Learn about requirements and solutions for systems operating in space

· Drive trade-off analysis to benefit customer experience and optimization of resources (costs, power, spectrum)

Export Control Requirement:

Due to applicable export control laws and regulations, candidates must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (i.e., current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.
