In this role, you have the opportunity to

  • Carry out industrial research, enlarging relevant knowledge and bringing-in new knowledge. Representing a relevant competency of the group, and developing oneself in line with Group strategy.

  • Develop new analogue and mixed signal IC functions to optimize data acquisition for Ultrasound front end IC's. Specifically people that also understand the physical interactions of acoustics and tissue including different data acquisition strategies.

You are responsible for

  • Design of analogue and mixed-signal ASICs for 2D and 3D ultrasound probes

  • Involvement in system development of next generation ultrasound probes and systems

At Philips Research, we are working on next generation medical ultrasound systems and applications.

The ultrasound probe/scanner is an important and expensive component in an ultrasound system. Quite often, the probe determines the overall image quality and framerate. The price of the probe is high due to the usage of expensive transducer arrays and probe cables. There is a need for new ultrasound probes that are cheaper, enable new ultrasound modalities, enable wearable and wireless solutions and allow increased framerates at 3D imaging.

The probe includes a 2D or 3D capable transducer array, which is controlled by an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC). Initial hardware data processing typically happens in FPGAs. Advanced ultrasound systems may use software beamforming and benefit from artificial intelligence. In-probe digitization of raw ultrasound echo signals is an important aspect of next generation probes.

The vacancy is in the Microsystems and Devices group (MS&D), where a team of designers is working on various mixed-signal ASICs for biomedical applications including ultrasound.

To succeed in this role, you should have the following skills and experience

  • University Degree in Electrical Engineering, preferably with a recent PhD degree

  • Experience on ultrasound-related analogue or mixed-signal ASIC circuit design

  • Knowledge on ultrasound system hardware and acoustic transducers

  • Knowledge on ultrasound beamforming techniques

  • Fluent in English

In return, we offer you

  • A competitive salary;

  • 25 Days of leave and the possibility to purchase up to 20 extra days off annually;
