FPGA Design Engineer Skills and Responsibilities

  • FPGA engineers we place may purely specialise in writing HDL, using typically either Verilog or VHDL and using FPGAs such as Altera or Xilinx.
  • We have also placed FPGA engineers who have this knowledge as a subset of wider electronics experience and background.
  • The typical FPGA engineer we recruit has skills with VHDL, Verilog, knowledge of Xilinx and Altera FPGAs as well as knowledge of the wider electronics and embedded systems.
  • Aside from having the relevant FPGA development experience, our requirements are usually some knowledge of working with other parts of electronics/embedded systems such as RF, embedded coding in C, analogue design, high-speed digital design and tests.
  • Some of the FPGA engineers we work with have experience in the architectural design of FPGAs and specialise purely in this kind of integrated circuit, whilst others are electronics/embedded systems engineers with more general FPGA experience.

    FPGA Jobs UK – FAQs

    Is FPGA a good career?

    Working with Field Programmable Gate Arrays is a good career choice if you’re an electronics engineer that wants to specialise in an area that requires niche skills and experience. Because it is a career path that not many people specialise in, you have the potential to be very successful if you’re good at what you do.

    Are FPGA design engineers in demand?

    Yes, FPGA design engineers are in demand in the engineering and design industry. This is because the market for this kind of technology is expanding rapidly and demand is increasing for both AI and IoT devices, so engineers that are confident working with Field Programmable Gate Arrays are desired by many engineering companies.

    What is the salary of an FPGA engineer?

    According to data from Glassdoor, the average annual salary for an FPGA engineer in the UK is £59,380. It’s an engineering profession where salaries tend to be higher because the job requires specialist experience, so once you’re established in the profession you will likely make a good amount of money.
