Hi, 

        I am currenlty working as an Electronics Engineer with 6 years of experience.I want to enter into FPGA field.  While I am looking in the job market there are divided into RTL design/integration and Verfication. My doubts are: 

1. can one enter directly into RTL design engineer without working as a verification engineer? 

 

I am familiar with Verilog.

Apart from verilog what are the basic skills required to enter into FPGA and to pursue FPGA as a long time career?

The simple answer is yes, one can become RTL designer without working as verification engineer.


You may checkout reddit as the community there is larger and you may get more opinion from a variety of people.

At the same time, do some job research to grasp an understanding on what kind of job you want and what do they do.


Would like mention that this is a disclaimer and the reply is just general advice. I am not speaking on Intel behalf.
