Improved electronics technology will bring a new generation of devices that provide portability, connectivity, lower cost and data security. With the trend towards miniaturization comes the requirement for improved security to maintain patient confidentiality. Reliability is also a requirement, both in terms of product longevity and assurance that the device is working as specified. This is crucial for the rapidly expanding market for devices used in emergency interventions. Microsemi’s non-volatile customizable system-on-chip (cSoC) devices and FPGAs provide the right combination of features to let equipment makers deliver on all those demands.
