Medical device manufacturers operate in a challenging environment – filled with stringent regulatory requirements and competitive pressures. With a rise in mainstream healthcare competitors from non-medical based companies and an uptake of touch-screen interface and connectivity technology, device manufacturers are facing external pressures and device development timelines that are typical to consumer-grade electronics, which are difficult to meet in a regulated industry.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Integrating middle components and libraries, such as OpenCV for imaging, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for connectivity, Qt, Open GL for UI
  • Reducing scope, timeframe to compliance (to standards like IEC 62304), and costs

Building life-critical medical devices that meet today’s demands for connectivity and intuitive, consumer-like
graphics doesn’t have to be as complicated, difficult, and time-consuming as it once was.
