    - Sensor readout electronics
    - Analog signal conditioning
    o Data processing units
    - Concept, design and test of data processing units
    - Implementation of payload data processing functions on processors
    (e.g. DSP, GPU or uProcessor) and FPGAs based platforms
    - Trade-off analysis and verification of the performance in simulation and
    hardware
    o Instrument controller
    - Concept, design and test of payload computers
    - Knowledge of applied memory technologies

    o Experience with high speed serial link based systems and the testing of
    these interfaces
    o SpaceWire, SpaceFibre and related protocols
    o Protocols providing quality of service, reliability, determinism and FDIR
    o Ethernet based systems based on Powerlink, AFDX or similar is an
    asset
    • Validation of signal and image processing algorithms via simulation
    techniques (e.g. Matlab, prototyping SW)
    • Specific engineering support in the above domains to mainstream ESA
    space projects, mainly for (but not restricted to) the development and
    testing phases.
    • Experience in VHDL programming, including reconfiguration and partial
    reconfiguration techniques is an asset
