Over de functie

Are you an experienced Digital Electronics Design Engineer with relevant experience in the medical devices or medical equipment industry looking for the next challenge? If the answer is “yes”, Philips IGT-D might have the opportunity you are looking for! 

In this role, you have the opportunity to:

  • Get to know that the average heart beats about 100.000 times daily. 
  • And that more than 7 million people each year die from coronary heart disease – so, innovation, prevention, diagnosis and treatment is essential to reduce this number and improve the life of the patient. 
At Philips Image-Guided Therapies Devices (IGT-D) we are working on industry leading solutions helping clinicians on deciding, guiding, treating and confirming the right therapy for each patient in real-time during image guided therapies. 

Philips IGT-D is looking for an experienced Digital Electronics Design Engineer to contribute to the development of 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's 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. 

Your activities include the setting up of 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 Electrical Design: 
• Develop functional prototypes (including design, documentation, testing, and rapid prototyping) and final medical devices. 
• Design, develop, modify and evaluate HW 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. 

You will be part of 
Philips IGT-D, a Philips business, is a global leader in physiology and intravascular imaging for coronary and peripheral applications. The business also offers a suite of peripheral therapeutic devices. This is part of Philip’s industry leading solutions to help clinicians to decide, guide, treat and confirm the right therapy for each patient in real-time during image-guided therapies (IGT).

Experience with various memory technologies (NOR, NAND, SDRAM and DDR) and communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet and wireless) are a must. High speed/high fidelity are also important in our medical domain. 

To succeed in this role, you it is important to the following skills and experience: 
• Bachelor or Master Degree in Electronics/Electrical/Embedded electronics. 
• Experience in the design and implementation of systems and experience in electrical subjects such as embedded electronics, EMC/EMI, reliability, FMEA of at least 5 years. 
• Circuit design with mainly digital components. 
• Design and implementation of FPGA or Microcontroller based HW design. 
• Proven experience with various memory technologies (NOR, NAND, SDRAM and DDR) and communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet and wireless). 

Additional skills include: 
• Thermal management experience; 
• Experience using circuit simulation software, schematic capture software, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, emulators and other lab equipment.
