Vacancy 1: Project manager mixed signal ASIC

 

1.1 What you will do

You will coordinate the activities for the development of a mixed signal ASIC for Pulsify, in collaboration with our development partners. In your role you will translate the user requirements into system specifications. You will define the system architecture for the ASIC through system level models and come up with innovative solutions, and this in collaboration with the team working on the implementation of the ASIC. You will act as integrator between hardware and software functions. You will interact across boundaries with the teams working on other aspects of the system (such as the ultrasound transducer chip and the software algorithms). Excellent communication and social skills are essential for this role.

 

1.2 You are responsible for:
  • System level design, modelling, simulation and testing
  • Spec’ing system components
  • Coordinating the development activities of an ASIC

 

1.3 Who you are

The ideal candidate should have experience in developing ultrasound or similar systems.

  • You have obtained a Ms.Sc. or PhD. degree or equivalent experience.
  • You know how to develop models in system level languages such as system-C, matlab and/or Python.
  • You are experienced with research and development of electronics and embedded systems.
  • You have experience with mixed-signal ASIC design, in particular with the analogue signal processing chain. Your experience with ultrasound systems (or other pulsed echo systems), beamforming and link budget calculations is a plus.
  • Your experience with model based system engineering, and languages such as SYSML is a bonus
  • You like taking initiative, you are persuasive and assertive, while keeping a constructive attitude and you are committed to achieve results fast but in a reliable way.
  • You are familiar with signal processing.
  • Given the international context, a fluent knowledge of English is necessary.

 

Vacancy 2: Digital & mixed signal design engineer

 

2.1 What you will do

As the digital & mixed signal ASIC design engineer you will have a key role in the venture, helping us to design and develop the system for our novel ultra-sound solution. In your role you will help us to define and realize the digital parts of the signal processing chain and interface this to the ultrasound sensors. You will define the architecture, design and simulate digital parts of the mixed signal circuits. You will help define the specifications for the system and implement the control & signal processing algorithms. You will build system models to predict the performance of the digital elements. You will have a strong interaction with the teams working on other aspects of the system, and with our partners developing the custom chips.

 

2.2 You are responsible for:
  • Architecture, design and implementation of the digital elements of the mixed signal circuits
  • Develop, design and characterize test boards/circuits for evaluating the developed system
  • FPGA programming and implementation of signal processing algorithms

 

2.3 Who you are

The ideal candidate should have experience in designing digital circuits and algorithms for low power mixed signal systems and circuits for sensors with high sampling frequencies.

  • You have obtained a Ms.Sc. or PhD. degree with 5+ years of experience.
  • Know-how of designing digital and mixed signal circuits and systems; defining specifications and architecture, design, and implementation.
  • Knowledge of system modelling and languages such as systemC, matlab and Simulink is required
  • Your experience with model based system engineering, and languages such as SYSML is a bonus
  • Experienced in designing low power mixed signal circuits for sensors with a high sampling frequency. Your experience in ultrasound is a bonus.
  • You are familiar with the development of software and drivers for embedded systems.
  • You are familiar with ASIC development, implementation of digital circuits and algorithms. Experience with FPGA programming (verilog/vhdl) is a bonus.
  • You are familiar with signal processing algorithms and their implementation.
  • Your familiarity with circuit layout in spice/cadence is a bonus.
  • You like taking initiative, you are persuasive and assertive, while keeping a constructive attitude and you are committed to achieve results fast but in a reliable way.
  • Given the international context, a fluent knowledge of English is necessary.

 

Vacancy 3: Lead ultrasound sensor designer

 

3.1 What you will do

As the lead ultrasound sensor designer, you will have a key role in the venture, and you are expected to become the internal reference on ultrasound sensor architecture, design and manufacturability. You will help us to design and develop the sensor for our novel ultra-sound solution, in combination with other partners working on other parts of the system. You will study the architecture of the sensor and derive the specifications for the sensor. Through modelling and simulations you will derive the interaction of the sensor with the other system components. You will perform trade studies to evaluate the impact of the sensor architecture on the overall system performance. As the ultrasound sensor designer, you will be busy with both mechanical integrated circuits, as well as integrated electronic circuits. You will build system models to predict the performance of the sensor and characterise fabricated sensors to validate models and evaluate sensor performance. You will have a strong interaction with the teams working on other aspects of the system, and with our partners developing the custom chips. Your work will be cross boundary and a decent understanding on integrated circuit fabrication is needed.
