Digital Hardware Design Engineer
In this role, you have the opportunity to:
Help create a healthier society through meaningful work.
Philips is the leader in Image-Guided Therapy, providing integrated solutions that advance minimally invasive procedures. We help healthcare providers to decide, guide, treat and confirm the right care in real time during the procedure to enable better outcomes for each patient and at population level.
Philips Image Guided Therapy Devices (IGT-D), helps healthcare providers to focus on improving treatment for every patient.
Our integrated solutions advance the art of minimally invasive procedures for patients with coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease or lead extraction indications. The medical community seeks ever more precise, accurate and efficient tools in order to decide, guide, treat and confirm the right therapy for the right patient at the point of care.
You are responsible for
We are looking for an experienced Digital Hardware Design Engineer, focusing on board-level hardware design, to contribute as a member of our team for our intravascular imaging and functional measurement consoles. The console team is responsible for all enabling hardware in between the disposable catheter/wire on one hand and the output on the screen on the other hand. The development team main goal is to de-risk technical designs in an early stage and demonstrate this with early prototypes prior to product development (PDLM) and develop the final products including managing its lifecycle.
The successful candidate will be an experienced Digital Hardware Design engineer who is able to deliver high quality designs within project timelines and considering the medical device compliance. Working with a diverse team of highly capable engineers (software and hardware), the candidate must be able to create primarily the digital and mixed signal design in easy to maintain and extendible parts.
Proven design experience in various digital-signal-processing platforms (FPGA, DSP, uController, hybrid), as well as various memory technologies (NOR, NAND, SDRAM and DDR) and various communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet and wireless) is a must. High speed and high fidelity are also important in our medical domain. Given the close interaction with the analog and mixed signal frontend, knowledge of these domains is important to create an optimal solution.
Your activities contain of setting up the design concept and requirements. You demonstrate the feasibility of your designs by prototyping and simulation. You verify that your design and implementation complies with the requirements and long-term architecture and that technical risks are mitigated.
Digital Hardware Design Engineer:
Develop functional prototypes (including design, documentation, testing, and rapid prototyping) and final medical devices.
Design, develop, modify and evaluate hardware systems and components per safety and regulatory requirements (IEC60601, IEC60950).
Write technical design support documentation, test protocols and reports for the verification and certification.
Identify, initiate and drive improvements within the electrical domain such as product, technical and process improvements.
To succeed in this role, you should have the following skills and experience:
Master’s degree in Electronics/Electrical/Embedded electronics.
Proven experience of at least 5 years in digital hardware design and electronic systems including:
Various memory technologies (NOR, NAND, SDRAM, DDR).
Communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet, Wireless).
Digital-signal-processing platforms (FPGA, uController, DSP, CPU, hybrid).
Generic components (ADC, DAC, sensors).
Schematic design with Digital and Analog components, circuit simulation software, schematic capture software.
EMC/EMI, reliability, FMEA.
Additional skills include experience in:
Use of oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, emulators and other lab equipment.
FPGA (HDL) design would be an additional plus.
An advantage would be having worked with IEC60601-2-37 and IEC60601-2-34
