    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
