• Excellent knowledge on Altium
• Good experience in designing product with multiple power sources like AC/DC, DC/DC, Battery Pack, AA Battery
• Lead the creation of designs of analog and digital electronic circuit schematics for microcontroller based systems, meeting performance objectives.
• Analyze circuits using calculation and simulation methods to assess performance limits, effects of environmental and load stresses, and timing interfaces to ensure consistent performance in safety critical applications.
• Ensures successful integration of electrical design with mechanical and software elements of the system.
• Completes deliverables related to design of systems and sub-systems of the overall electrical architecture.
• Develops, modifies, and approves electrical design documentation, specifications and drawings.
• Defines appropriate test methods to verify designs meet their performance requirements.
• Mentor the layout of circuit assemblies to meet emissions and immunity performance requirements and design for manufacturability guidelines.
• Transitions products to manufacturing and ensures robust products and manufacturing processes.
• Develops and maintains an effective and corroborative working relationship with internal and external development partners.
• Resolves competing constraints between interrelated functions (engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, regulatory, marketing, etc.) required to deliver the product to market.
• Implements data acquisition and analysis techniques to characterize design performance
• Executes protocols and testing required to validate the safety and effectiveness of the design(s).
• Leads the troubleshooting and problem solving efforts related to electrical aspects of devices and associated systems.
• Creates and communicates design/test plans, tasks, deliverables and status. Manages time and resources to meet committed schedule milestones.

Qualifications
• Bachelors or Masters in Electronics/Electrical Engineering or equivalent with 8 to 12 years of relevant experience.Experience in infusion pump is plus.
• Proven track record in electrical/electromechanical hardware development, preferably medical devices or any any other highly regulated products such as military hardware.
• Knowledge and experience in design of embedded microcontroller based electronics products.
• Knowledge of FPGA-based controller design and implementation is added advantage.
• Experience testing of electronics components/devices to meet Safety regulatory requirements e.g. Immunity, emission, partial discharge etc.
• Knowledge and experience of electronics board layouting using PCB Design software (Altium Designer) to review and guide to PCB designers
• Knowledge of safety regulation standards e.g. IEC 60601, IEC 61010, UL, ANSI and ASTM
• Specific experience in design and development of sensors for sensing subsystems highly desirable.
• Good experience in designing product with multiple power sources like AC/DC, DC/DC, Battery Pack, AA Battery
