Electronics Engineering

Our electronics engineers deliver robust designs that address not only the functional design requirements but those of safety, electromagnetic compatibility, reliability, serviceability, and reproducibility. Our engineers draw on not only their experience in developing medical products but also their previous experience in systems engineering, aerospace engineering, test equipment design, high-speed communications, analog and digital television, RF transmitters and receivers, high-speed digital design, and electronics packaging design.

We develop systems, subsystems, and circuits in the following categories:
Computer and Digital Systems and Circuits Design, Digital Circuit Design

  • Microprocessors, microcontrollers, and DSPs
  • Programmable logic design (FPGA/CPLD)
  • User interface devices, such as LCDs, touch screens
  • All types of memory devices, SRAMs, SDRAMs, Flash
  • Communications interfaces, such as Ethernet, USB, etc.

Analog Circuit Design

  • RF power generators for surgery and therapy
  • Accurate and stable digital RF power control
  • Signal conditioning of low-level signals from transducers
  • Electrochemistry support circuits
