Acacia is looking for an RTL expert who pairs knowledge and interest in DSP with an interest in sharing his or her RTL design knowledge with the DSP colleagues. We believe that industry-leading performance and power efficiency require very close cooperation between algorithm and RTL design where the RTL designer provides input to the algorithm designer and vice versa. Furthermore, we believe that the efficiency of this cooperation increases with increasing DSP knowledge with the RTL designers and increasing RTL knowledge with the DSP designers.

You will be a core member of the team designing the DSP and FEC architecture and algorithms in our coherent ASICs working with the algorithm designer(s) on DSP blocks that are particularly power critical or particularly hard to implement. Concrete deliverables will include specifications suited for RTL implementation, in some cases the actual RTL implementation, and in some cases the bit exact and cycle accurate models that will be used for ASIC DV and system simulations. Depending on your experience and interest, you may also be responsible for developing the algorithms for some DSP blocks.

At Acacia, we take pride in delivering coherent interfaces with the highest capacity/reach and the lowest power consumption to our customers which is only possible with a team of skillful, technically ambitious, creative, and persistent colleagues who are willing to go through multiple design iterations if necessary.

Besides the RTL and algorithm work, you will have numerous opportunities to work with colleagues in optical system testing, ADC/DAC development, software, hardware, optical component design, and other fields thereby acquiring a lot of new and diverse knowledge.

Skills and experience

The essential requirements for this job are great skills in power-efficient RTL design of massively-parallel high throughput (100Gbit/s+) signal processing systems and a good understanding of DSP, ideally for communications systems.

Additional valuable knowledge include one or more of the following: strong C++ skills, knowledge of FEC and information theory, experience with the latest CMOS processes, and experience with DSP for optical communications.

Acacia work philosophy

A friendly, open and collaborative work environment is a key value at Acacia. We work together within the group and between the groups to create and implement great ideas, peer-review designs to eliminate mistakes, and share the workload in a balanced way.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
