What we offer
A position as Hardware Design Engineer working with technology that improves the life quality of millions of hearing impaired people worldwide, where you will be challenged by getting audio-, radio- and digital-ASICs to function together in compact designs where every mm3 and μA counts.
You will be joining a highly dedicated team of experienced multi-disciplined engineers covering all aspects of hearing aid development. The team is a part of the Hearing Aid Development Unit of the Global R&D at Widex HQ.
As Hardware Design Engineer you have the responsibility for the electronics in the next generation hearing aids. You will be a part of the development process from the very early phases where you’ll conduct feasibility studies and define the product specifications to designing and maturing the solution and finally verifying the design.
Your focus will be the design of the flexible circuit boards in the hearing aids which integrates audio- and DSP-ASICs developed by Widex with e.g. Bluetooth radio, sensors, acoustical transducers, power supply, antennas etc.
Increasing the use of simulation during development is a strategic focus area in Widex R&D and you will be an important driver in developing and applying simulation tools for e.g. signal integrity and cross talk.
Some of your daily tasks as a Hardware Design Engineer are:
- Design of the electronics in a hearing aid - including e.g. component selection, schematics and layout
- Development and application of simulation models for flexible circuit boards and components
- Simulation of signal integrity and cross talk.
- Investigations of future technologies for hearing aids
- Collaboration with other engineering disciplines and production to find the optimum solutions for the hearing aid design
- Test and verification of your design
- Design control and documentation
You should expect 5-10 traveling days pr. year.
You have an education within electronic engineering, and ideally you have practical experience within the following areas:
- Design and layout of small, power efficient mixed-signal electronic circuitries - preferably in Altium
- Inductive components, batteries, charging circuitries and power supplies
- Simulation of signal integrity in electronic designs - preferably in Ansys
- Verification of electronic performance
- Documentation of design and test - preferably within compliance of medical device directive
Small size and low power consumption are two essential parameters of a hearing aid. It is thus important that you feel passionate about development of small and power efficient solutions that deliver the required performance despite the compact physical constraints in a hearing aid. Also, your sense of interaction between electronics, mechanics, acoustics and software must be good.
As a person, you have an innovative mindset and a structured approach to problem solving. You’re a team player but can work independently when required. You have a passion for electronic design and strive to deliver high quality, but you understand the need for trade-offs between quality and cost while meeting your schedule, and you like to show results.
