Q-Free is a highly reputed technology provider in the road tolling business which has delivered advanced 5.8 GHz CEN-DSRC solutions for both on and off vehicle equipment since the mid-’90s.
The solutions are mainly characterized as compact battery-operated microwave transponders, manufactured in very high volumes. The solutions are generally constrained on cost, size, and near-zero power consumption.
To maintain this position, we are now strengthening our R&D department in Trondheim with specialists within the field of integrated circuits design.
This team will focus on developing IP highly specialized for extremely low power operation in wireless designs. These solutions will then have to be realized in silicon in cooperation with world-class IC design houses.
The team will also have responsibilities for FPGA based solutions found in the more complex roadside products.
Overall, the candidate in this position will develop blocks to be used in ASICs. The work will consist of coding in Verilog/VHDL, constructing verification programs and embedded programming in C for System-On-Chip designs. There will also be programming tasks for FPGA designs.
This represents a unique opportunity to work with IC designs while at the same time working with or close to the end products and systems.
