Three Things Medical Device Designers Need to Know About UVC LEDs

The global infection control market is projected to reach $22 billion by 2022 with disinfection products, which would include UVC devices, representing the largest growth segment. UVC LEDs offer medical equipment designers an exciting new way to develop hand-held or portable disinfection devices to greatly enhance HAI prevention in a wide range of healthcare applications. Importantly, the design and operating flexibility of UVC LEDs means that these devices could be used during routine daily patient management and not limited to empty terminal room events.

NSK MOTORIZED BALL SCREW ACTUATOR (MBSA SERIES): NSK Achieves Space Saving Design with Linear Precision for Medical Applications

NSK Americas examines how advancements in technology have reduced equipment size used for medical applications. Contributing to this trend, NSK has developed the MBSA Series (motorized ball screw actuator). The new design eliminates the need for a separate motor-to-ball screw coupling. The compact space-saving design reduces system inertia and eliminates alignment error that can occur when the motor and ball screw are separately mounted. Not only is the new design compact, but it’s also precise. NSK uses a precision ground ball screw versus the traditional lead screw option. This white paper details why a precision ground ball screw is the optimal solution.

Fiber Optic Rotary Joints Add a Spin to Sensing, Mobile, and Robotic Fiber Systems

To the passing optical signals, fiberoptic rotary joints (FORJs) are nothing more than fiber connectors, which provide connection between one or multiple fibers. Their unrestricted ability to rotate, however, gives them a critical role in many sensing, mobile, and robotic fiber systems such as ROVs (remotely operated vehicles), aerostat radars, submarines, satellite antennae, OCT (optical coherence tomography), mining vehicles, cranes, wind turbines, robotic vehicles, broadcasting (mobile cameras), etc. This article discusses some of the applications where optical rotary joints are indispensable.

DO-254 Benefits Versus Costs

DO-254, the design assurance guideline for airborne electronic hardware, is considered by many to be a simple cut/paste of DO-178, its avionics software sibling. Surely, as with wine and beer, both are fermented liquids which become increasingly expensive with increased complexity. While similarities abound, so do their many differences. And truly, DO-254 is the benefactor, or bane, of avionics projects the world over. But is DO-254 really unduly expensive? Does it add value? Will it improve safety and reliability? Does it have benefits? What are the true costs versus benefits? These important questions are answered herein.
