Philips Digital Electronics Design Engineer IGT-Devices in Best, Netherlands


Digital Electronics Design Engineer IGT-Devices

In this role, you have the opportunity to build the image guided solutions that create real-time visuals during cardiac surgery

You 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 IGT Devices 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 (IGT).

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!

You are responsible for

Philips IGT-Devices is looking for an experienced Digital Electronics Design Engineer to contribute as a member of the Advanced Development 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 Advanced 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).

The successful candidate will be an experienced Digital Electronics 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 (components and parts), including FPGA-based design, microcontroller-based design and other processing elements. Given the close interaction with the analog and mixed signal frontend, knowledge of these domains is important to create an optimal solution. 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.

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. Your design output will be transferred to the Consoles R&D development team with which you will stay in close touch during Product Development to ensure a smooth transfer.

Digital Electrical Design:

  • Develop functional prototypes and devices (including design, documentation, testing, and rapid iteration). Lead design transfer activities from Advanced Development to Development.

  • 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, certification and design transfer from Advanced Development to Development.

  • Identify, initiate and drive improvements within the electrical domain such as product, technical and process improvements.
