Medical OEMs face a number of challenges in miniaturizing device designs. Fortunately, new electronic capabilities and technologies are enabling this process to be performed more efficiently.
Parylene is an excellent option for medical device manufacturers seeking a device coating for their product. Unfortunately, specific factors limit its use in certain applications. A new variation offers benefits that address these concerns.
This presentationthe follow-up to an article that appeared in the May issuereviews the physical characteristics of the materials used when designing and manufacturing a combination product.
Device companies are always seeking new methods with which to save time and money in the design and manufacturing processes.
Automating a traditionally manual process can introduce a variety of advantages to the procedure.
Selecting the right fluid line connector can boost performance and bring enhanced benefits to a medical device. However, with a variety of choices between fittings, luers, and couplings, it is difficult to know which offering would be best indicated for a specific application.
Selecting a membrane to use with a medical device seems like a relatively simple enough process, however, without careful consideration of a number of key factors, a device can fail as a result of an improper choice.
Medical imaging applications, such as CT scanning, move extremely large amounts of data through a system at a very high rate.
A new generation, peelable chevron header pouch, called Duet, that reduces costs while offering improved aseptic presentation of medical products is offered. Duet’s hybrid design combines elements from both header bags and chevron pouches.
This miniature, thin film thermoelectric generator (TEG) converts heat directly into electricity.
EtherCAN is a CAN-ethernet gateway that converts from CAN into ethernet to overcome the limited physical length of CAN networks. Since CAN technology was originally developed for the automotive industry, it has limitations for high-speed data transmission (1 MBit/sec) at distances of over 50 ft.
SE/SE2 and E200II Series inverters for CCFL-backlit LCDs are vacuum-encapsulated to provide maximum reliability and excellent resistance to shock, vibration, and humidity.
Gold contact FFC/FPC connectors may be mated with flat flexible cable that contains a gold coating on the stripped ends for an extra measure of reliability in board-to-board interconnections.
By adding robotics to the production line, a company can turbocharge its product quality, reliability, and speed to market. This article will focus on what characteristics should be examined when considering a robotic solution for various tasks.
The Smoovy Series 0308…B version of the brushless DC motor line uses the “System Faulhaber” skewed winding in combination with a rotor made of Neodymium rare-earth magnets to provide cog-free motion. The bearing system of the Series 0308…B brushless DC motor is now composed of jewel bearings.
