    Full Time

Micro Systems Engineering, Inc. (MSEI) is a leader in manufacturing components for cardio- and endovascular medical technology (pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, stents and remote patient management). We put our heart in it. MSEI employs highly committed employees who undertake tenacious research and development and meticulous manufacturing to meet this huge responsibility. MSEI´s products are designed, produced and sold by people who put their hearts into their work.

From the very start, MSEI dedicated itself to driving progress and innovation and delivering exceptional quality. We have earned the trust of medical professionals and patients by combining the renowned art of German engineering with technical excellence and uncompromising quality standards. This dedication is evident in everything we do. 

Medical engineering is an industry of the future. In a field marked by rapid developments and short innovation cycles, the best guarantees for sustainable success are committed, creative, team-oriented specialists, and outstanding leadership. If you are passionate about computer science, engineering or the natural sciences and enjoy developing new ideas, you've found the right place.

 

POSITION SUMMARY:
 
This individual will make significant contributions to all aspects of IC design for low-power implantable medical devices, including neuromodulation, pacemaker and monitoring devices. The various tasks will involve concept/specification development, design partitioning and block level design, detailed circuit design and simulation, layout floor-planning and transistor level layout, bench verification and testing, test vector development, and documentation. The individual in this position will directly interact and collaborate with system level engineers, hardware engineers, firmware engineers, and with IC design, test and layout engineers in teams located at design centers within the United States (US) as well as in Germany. Development tasks will involve using state-of-the-art CAD tools for the design, simulation, integration and verification of integrated circuits and systems.

 

Key responsibilities and requisite skills include the following:

  • Design and development of high-performance and high-reliability mixed-signal integrated circuits for implantable medical products.
  • Active involvement and leadership in all aspects of IC design, including the development of functional concepts and specifications, top-level design architecture, design partitioning and block level design, detailed circuit design and simulation, layout floor-planning and transistor level layout, bench verification and testing, test-vector development, and documentation.
  • Design of novel very low-power, low-voltage analog/mixed-signal IC functional blocks including but not limited to voltage/current references, operational amplifiers, comparators, switched-capacitor circuits (amplifiers, filters, charge pumps, etc.), ADCs and DACs, oscillators, switching power circuits, communication circuits, etc.
  • Design of robust, energy-optimal mixed-signal circuits for neuromodulation applications, including circuits for neural stimulation, neural signal amplification/filtering/signal processing, battery charging and power-management.
  • Design of very low power digital functional blocks (combinatorial, sequential, synchronous, asynchronous, state machines, etc.) for timing, control, interfacing and signal processing. A strong grasp of the tradeoffs involved in using various analog and digital circuit design techniques to optimally implement system functions is highly desired.
  • Effective collaboration with other members of the IC design group and with teams in other design centers.

 

Requirements

REQUIREMENTS:

  • BS degree in Electrical Engineering with 3-15 years of experience in low-power analog/mixed-signal IC design.
  • Advanced degrees in Electrical Engineering (MS / PhD), with relevant work in the field, is desirable.
  • Experience in analog and digital IC design for very low power portable and/or implantable applications, with a strong grasp of the tradeoffs involved in using various analog and digital circuit design techniques to optimally implement system functions.
  • Strong grasp of CMOS processes, device characteristics, and layout techniques and their effects on circuit performance.
  • Experience in lab bench characterization and test-vector generation for pre-silicon and post-silicon verification and production support.
  • Strong understanding of analog and digital signal-processing techniques and communication theory.
  • Experience in neuromodulation IC circuits and applications is highly desired.
  • Experience in the design of very low power RF communication circuits is desirable.
  • Strong verbal communications skills and strong technical document writing skills is required.
  • Experience with the use of Cadence mixed-signal IC design and layout tools, Verilog and Matlab is highly desired.
  • Experience with Unix/Linux OS, scripting languages and C/C++ is desirable.
