The Truth about Parylene Coating & Medical Devices

Parylene is the generic name for members of a unique polymer series. Parylene conformal coatings represent a distinct family of organic polymeric coating materials that are polycrystalline and linear in nature, with innumerable commercial applications. Resilient, dielectric, and pinhole-free, parylenes are frequently selected for use with products subjected to ongoing conditions of duress that might otherwise diminish their performance.

Assisting An Aging Population: Designing Medical Devices With Force Sensing Technology

With the geriatric population on the rise, design engineers are challenged with designing responsive, noninvasive, user-friendly medical devices that cater to the needs of an older generation. Patients are looking for cost-effective, easy to use assistive tools that help them regain independence and confidence in their everyday life. Force feedback is a key feature for many of these devices that provide the user and doctor with great insight that ultimately results in better quality of life for the patient. Medical devices with force feedback allow design engineers to create innovative products that differentiate them from the competition.

High Reliability Flexible Circuits for the Medical Marketplace

Tech-Etch manufacturers high reliability flex circuits used in the diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring, cardiac management and life science industries. Flexible circuits provide the thinnest and lightest interconnect method available. Their extreme thinness makes them very well suited for dynamic applications where the flex will be in constant or periodic motion. They contribute to reducing overall system complexity by facilitating assembly and eliminating wiring errors. Flexible circuits will conform to the available geometry for connections of electronics located on different planes within the finished electronic device. This capability is sometimes referred to as 3D packaging.
