In the high-tech market, the IoT is driving connectivity requirements in devices across many segments. Considering the number of embedded medical devices hospital, you can quickly imagine areas where Wi-Fi connectivity can be used to connect devices, patients, administrators and doctors. For example, Wi-Fi can be applicable in the doctor’s office, in the operating room, at the nurse’s station, in the waiting room and so on. There are lots of dedicated embedded devices that have a specific purpose in the hospital. Just as we see consumer devices becoming connected and able to multitask, electronics in the hospital can achieve the same levels of connectivity.
Perhaps wishful thinking, but maybe an app will surface for connecting those devices with Smartphones. This personal app could manage your medical history and insurance credentials. It could also capture your vitals with check boxes for why you’re in route to the Doctors office or hospital. And maybe that information could be communicated by your Smartphone on the way to the hospital to minimize the wait-time and paperwork (go green) during the check-in process.
In the meantime, Mentor Embedded, Freescale and Silex America are teaming up to present an informative webinar on their joint technologies help to speed develop cycles for customers building medical devices. Mentor Embedded creates the Nucleus RTOS and Sourcery CodeBench tools, Silex America creates the Wi-Fi hardware modules and Freescale brings the popular i.MX family of ARM based platforms. While the individual products offer good value to prospective customers, the combined technologies and the right blend of integration brings significant value that saves time to market for developers.
Each company is well represented by experts in their products to talk about how the integrated technologies present optimized solutions for medical devices. During this webinar, you will learn about the embedded software and hardware challenges developers medical devices are faced with and how Mentor, Silex and Freescale are working together to provide fully integrated solutions on i.MX hardware to speed times to markets for our customers. Nucleus is offered with well documented source code and has been deployed in over 3 billion units worldwide. Moreover, Nucleus has been deployed in over 90 FDA Class II and Class III devices. Freescale has a significant medical installed base and Silex offers best-in-class Wi-Fi modules. Collectively, all three companies enjoy mutual customers in the medical space and will be eager to share best practices and lessons learned during the webinar.
