Due to long cycles of system development, field tests and regulatory approval and certification, C-arms require embedded computing systems supporting longevity.
MicroTCA is a powerful, compact open-standard COTS architecture used in Military, Aerospace, Communications/ Networking, and other industries. By adding rear I/O capability and signal conditioning provisions in the MicroTCA.4 specification, the...
Test Centric Assembly is not a product but a process that builds total confidence in test results. It is a commitment to 100-percent, fail-safe leak testing. The goal is perfection. InterTech has devoted more than 40 years to the development and...
The introduction of Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulations signals a seismic shift in the labeling of medical devices. Over the past twenty years, the development of labeling solutions for the highly regulated devices sector has been a steady...
Medical device manufacturers that assemble devices and equipment must meet stringent FDA regulations for quality and product consistency, which makes rigorous process control essential. Fluids for medical device manufacturing can be extremely...
The CE Marking process tends to be complicated and time consuming. This white paper offers straight forward and easy to understand steps to successful CE marking. From this guide you will learn; why CE marking is easier than you think, an 11...
This paper will address the particular design and fabrication challenges of medical cables. It will examine the design parameters, material choices and manufacturing requirements that medical device manufacturers need to know to ensure that medical device interconnect is precise, reliable and durable – and protect them from liability.
A 3D printer is a machine that creates objects from plastic or other materials using an additive manufacturing process. Additive manufacturing produces objects in a succession of layers from the bottom, up. This is the opposite of traditional subtractive manufacturing processes, which produce objects by cutting material away from a block to create the shape desired.
This paper addresses the capabilities, roles and positioning of systems geared for professional use. Beginning with the most basic information – the definition of 3D printers – this whitepaper positions the two product classes.

To process the imaging and video feeds during surgical operations, long lifecycle computers are utilized. To handle the demands of real-time image and signal processing, these computers rely on high-performance Intel Core and Xeon processors, along with powerful graphics cards. Portwell provides a critical building block for such a system.
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).
Download this whitepaper on choosing an embedded OS for medical devices where reliability, recovery and safety are critical differentiators. It provides a high-level list of requirements that device manufacturers can use to evaluate OSs considerations.
This paper explains what IEC 62304 compliance means for manufacturers. It also describes the larger context of systems and software engineering best practices at work in many of today’s most successful companies.
