Job Description:

This Role will include the following responsibilities:
Design and develop FPGA firmware for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) detectors throughout the complete lifecycle: high-level design, concept research, simulation, prototype evaluation, performance testing, system integration testing, manufacturing launch and sustaining through commercialization.

  • Generate block diagrams for various design concepts and circuit topologies
  • Develop FPGA firmware for PET detector test and integration.
  • Use knowledge and experience to troubleshoot system, circuit board and component level failures.
  • Work closely with engineers and technicians from multiple disciplines to architect, develop, integrate and test designs for prototype and production systems.
  • Understands hardware, software and optical interfaces for area of responsibility.
  • Design for reliability, testability, manufacturability and cost targets.
  • Properly documents firmware throughout the product release stages: proof-of-concept, prototype (Initial Release) through design improvements.
  • Establish and maintain thorough and accurate engineering log books, data sets, test procedures and generally adhere to formal documentation practices required for medical device products.
  • Conduct and participate in hardware specification, schematic, and board layout reviews.

 

Required Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience:

  • Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering required.
  • Electrical engineering background in microprocessor and FPGA based mixed signal embedded systems, ADC/DAC control, and various analog sensor signals.
  • Experience with Altera and/or Xilinx FPGA design and verification tools.
  • Microcontroller Unit (MCU) firmware and software programming
  • Digital embedded systems and System-on-Chip (SoC) firmware and software programming

C, C++, C# programming

  • Strong electrical engineering background and sound technical fundamentals in electronics theory and product design.
  • Experience in low noise signal conditioning utilizing op-amps, power managements, and various interfaces (I2C, SPI, Ethernet, LVDS, CAN, etc.)
  • Experienced user of test equipment including (but not limited to): oscilloscope, logic analyzer, signal generator, spectrum analyzer, and vector network analyzer.
  • Experience meeting deliverables on time and within budget.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • Occasional travel is required to global supply chain partners, collaboration partners and Siemens MI offices in Hoffman Estates, IL and Knoxville, TN.

 

Preferred Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience:

  • Nuclear detector physics and electronics knowledge.
  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or equivalent disciplines
  • Experience with Mentor Graphics Expedition (or equivalent) layout and routing design tools.
  • Experience with Mentor Graphics Hyperlynx (or equivalent) signal and power integrity tools.
  • Experience with SPICE simulation (NI Multisim, PSpice, LTspice, Tina-TI, etc).
  • Knowledge and experience using data acquisition software (NI LabVIEW, MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink)
  • Advanced computer skills, including MS Office and Visio.
