Nowadays, the medical industry is using more and more electronic devices. With the advent of small-sized, low-power, and wearable physiological sensors and portable monitoring devices, this trend is only set to increase further. These technologies require real-time sensor processing, data acquisition, and communication operating on a tight power budget. Traditionally, FPGAs were not used for this type of application, but with the arrival of power-optimized FPGAs it’s now possible. For higher volume applications that require lower cost per unit, migration to an ASIC is an option.
Hardent’s team of expert ASIC and FPGA design engineers help customers in the medical industry overcome electronic design challenges and develop reliable, state-of-the-art medical devices.
We’ve worked on :
