Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West is the most comprehensive resource for every aspect of medical device development. It brings tens of thousands of medical device development professionals and leading medical OEM suppliers together to provide you with immediate hands-on access to the tools you need...
In many industries, manufacturers have reduced development times by using COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) software and hardware. Pressures to bring new, feature-rich products to market quickly affect medical device manufacturers as much as anyone
Three trends are driving a dramatic increase in the number and diversity of remote-care medical devices entering the market: aging populations in industrialized countries, pressures to reduce health care costs, and a new focus on primary and secondary care.
Many medical devices must bring together a disparate array of hardware and software components, as well as support a sophisticated, multi-layered Human-Machine Interface (HMI).
The FDA UDI Rule will establish a single device identification system that is consistent, unambiguous, standardized, and globally harmonized. All manufacturers of medical devices will be required to comply with the new UDI methodology.

EMC is often put off to the last phase of development … but it can't be ignored. Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) has many implications on several levels and most engineers working with electrical or electronic products have to deal with its many facets every day. In an IEEE survey of colleges and universities, it was found to be included in the curriculum in only ten engineering programs. As an explanation for this professors have commented that often there is so much to teach, EMC is given only a cursory nod. Go to http://dlsemc.com/emc-class/description.htm for more info.
