Hectronic offers both COTS products and full custom design embedded systems and boards for applications in medical technology. Our custom design projects are based on one of our own processor platforms which come in the shape of Computer-On-Modules
(COM), in form factors like Qseven
or COM Express
to be mounted on tailor made carrier boards.
A form factor is an industry standard including specification of for example dimensions, hole patterns, power consumption and interfaces. This standardization makes it less complex to change from one COM to another COM of the same form factor.
Some of our custom design projects involve integrating the processor platform from a COM onto a fully customized computer board or system. Through the IP ownership, control over the selection of components, BIOS and drivers
we have a unique possibility to extend product longevity
, if that’s your requirement.
The embedded computers we develop for customers within medical technology typically don’t require adaptation to demanding environments. Temperatures, vibrations, dust and water are not a more of a challenge than in a well-kept office. There are exceptions to the rule of course such as part of or in close range to x-ray or radiation equipment.
