Design Medical Electronic Devices Faster and Improve Productivity



This webinar three covers the advantages of model-driven practices for concurrent product design and design verification test.

A virtual design verification test environment is assembled that includes:

  • A test harness created in LabVIEW by National Instruments
  • System models of human physiology, leads, cables, connectors, and other device elements commonly encountered in validation testing

This virtual test platform allows test development to start earlier and permits extensive virtual verification and validation to be performed ahead of physical prototypes, ultimately cutting significant time out of the product release cycle.

What You Will Learn

  • Methodology for reducing time to market & increasing design robustness
  • Specific solutions to address design, verification & test challenges
  • A flow that supports tying requirements from specification through derived design and verification artifacts
  • A flow that supports early modeling of analog, mixed signal and physiological aspects of a system
  • A flow that supports early virtual system integration at the algorithm / functional level
  • A flow that supports generation of C, C++, and/or SystemC from UML / SysML executable models
  • A flow that supports early virtual system integration at the target language code / firmware level
  • A flow that supports comprehensive virtual system verification and validation including test harnesses, application software, firmware, digital hardware, analog hardware, mechanical and physiological elements
