Medical electronics OEMs may be able to move forward with their prototypes into pilot, medium, and high runs right here on American soil. And it may be sooner than later due in large part to the advances in PCB microelectronics assembly. Advanced medical devices like wearables, portables, insertable, and ingestible products are now either being […]

OEM customers in many cases want to reduce PCB real estate even more than an earlier product generation. The technologies that advanced PCB microelectronics assembly offers these days to do just that provide medical electronics OEMs and other OEMs an array of different options to optimize their product designs, whether they be portable, wearable, insertable […]

Today, advanced electronics products are shrinking PCB, component, and packaging sizes and in some instances as small as a postage stamp or even smaller. Therefore, caution has to be taken when products like these are subjected to high temperature reflow cycles. It’s important to consider low-temperature profiling. It is more effective if you can reflow […]

It has been a difficult year for families throughout the world and closer to home, for our friends, families and customers. On the bright side, we’re thankful that promising Covid-19 vaccines are on the horizon. If all goes well in 2021, we’ll be back to normal as much as possible. But in the meantime, despite […]

C4 and C2 bumps for flipchip assemblies are among the top techniques that require close attention during PCB microelectronics assembly. Those two are flipchip (FC) bump connection techniques and are crucial for efficient and cost-effective microelectronics assembly. In short, C4 and C2 are interposers that connect a small die in a FCBGA, using flipchip on […]

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 […]

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 […]
