Digital Design Engineer

BlueICe develops integrated circuits and embedded software for integrated circuits. Since its founding, BlueICe developed several integrated circuits from high level system design to production bring up. This for wireless communication standards as Low Energy Bluetooth, for industrial wireless applications and medical applications.
BlueICe is also a system design house, focusing on communication products and technology development.

Some product/technology examples:

  • Ultra sensitive demodulator for Bluetooth Low Energy[BLE]  GFSK modulation. Allowing to extend the range of a BLE connection to distances greater than 500m.
  • Ultra sensitive satellite receiver, allowing to receive digital satellite data [based on the DVBS standard], in harsh conditions: e.g. in a [flying] plane, or in a high speed train.
  • BLE based localization technology based on measuring Time Of Flight of RF [Radio Frequency] packets, reaching precisions down to a few 10s of cms.

Innovation and  creativity are central to the values and business model of BlueICe. BlueICe developed its own Ultra Low Power digital processor, with complete software development tool chain. BlueICe developed for several standards very high performance demodulation technology.

BlueICe is cooperating with leading edge semiconductor companies and academia, offering you a work environment with regular, sometimes daily international contacts. Its customers are distributed mainly over Europe. With some exceptions in the Far East.

In BlueICe you will work closely in a team which is a mix of junior and senior deep technical people, offering you a unique learning opportunity. BlueICe is a small company developing complex systems on chip, offering exposure to  a wide range of competencies, required for the design of these systems on chip.

BlueICe has a policy not to require extensive work experience. We are looking for creative, driven, critical people with a degree in engineering.

As Digital Design Engineer you are responsible for the development and verification of digital modules, subsystems or even the complete digital part of an integrated circuit. In some cases these digital subsystems can be validated in an FPGA.
Starting from a specification you develop an architecture for a digital sub system and for its implementation in Verilog or VHDL language.
You are responsible for verification of this digital subsystem. This verification is done in C, System Verilog.
From time to time these subsystems will be validated in FPGA. At that time you are responsible to cast the digital database onto an FPGA.


  • You have a Bachelor or Master diploma in Engineering.
  • Experience is not a requirement.  Experience will allow you to be responsible for  more complex subsystems and be more autonomous  from the start.
  • You like the challenge of technical work.
  • Relevant experience:
    • RTL development in VHDL or Verilog.
    • RTL development for ASICs or FPGA
    • RTL verification
    • Experience with PLI [Cadence]
    • ASIC/SOC/FPGA architecture design
    • Design for [ATE] test.
