OEMs and in particular medical equipment OEMs should become familiar with a packaging term now being introduced into PCB microelectronics assembly. This packaging involves a combination of flip-chip and BGA (FCBGA) packaging, Fig. 1. Figure 1: A BGA and a flip-chip interposer. (Source: Thorsten Meyer, Wikipedia, with minor modifications in red) FCBGA is critical due […]

The technology trends in the medical OEM field are moving toward smaller and advanced technologies, as shown in Fig. 1. Some of those advanced technologies are revolutionary new. For example, bio sensors for human and machine interface or HMI and new, flexible electrodes are leading the way. They are among the most recent developments and […]

A light-sensitive hydrogel for ingestible medical devices has recently been developed by MIT researchers, Fig. 1. Integrated with medical devices, doctors can insert those tiny systems into the human body to treat, diagnose or monitor disorders. Once those devices are no longer needed, they can then be dissolved inside the body by exposing them to […]

Medical miniaturization is rapidly evolving for a number of reasons. Among them are the fact that doctors, hospitals, and other medical care facilities are requiring more functionality, increased portability, and more robustness to upgrade surgical procedures and mobile monitoring equipment. Also, highly complex devices successfully interacting with the human body are driving the need for […]

Medical electronics continue to be a game changer, with miniaturization being foremost today in the minds of medical OEMs. In a previous column, I discussed ingestible and implantable medical devices based on remarkably small and unique PCBs, and the technology trends supporting those products continue to dramatically escalate. Today, there is a growing demand for […]

It’s vital to meet FDA and ISO 13485 Standard quality and reliability requirements for medical ventilators and other medical equipment. But there’s still more that ventilator OEMs need to put into practice, specifically in the high reliability or Hi Rel area to further add to ISO 13485. The term “Hi Rel” is most often associated […]

The unprecedented demand for thousands upon thousands of life-saving ventilators appears to be among the biggest challenges facing medical electronics OEMs today due to the coronavirus pandemic. News reports say that America’s biggest manufacturers are working with medical systems companies to produce the volumes of ventilators needed across the country. But there is also a […]

Hospitals and other medical centers are scrambling for ventilators in the U. S. and across the globe to help save lives during the Coronavirus pandemic.     EMS providers, contract manufacturers, and PCB fabricators are engaging with medical equipment customers to put into action vast numbers of new PCB orders specifically for the manufacture of thousands […]

An urgent call is out to medical equipment makers that thousands—even millions—of ventilators are in the greatest demand in our history due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. Some traditional medical equipment makers haven’t pursued the ventilator business nor have a lot of top manufacturing companies like Tesla, GM, and others that are poised to produce […]
