The medical world is fast paced and ever evolving. It seems there are every-day developments in the technology. This includes the lifelike bionic hands to genetically modifying human embryos. Doctors no longer need to rely on just a stethoscope to diagnose patients - there are smarter system that can diagnose a patient's condition.
But these recent trends have created challenges for OEMs. There are costs associated with creating performance based, medical-imaging systems for the growing healthcare industry. A "paperless" hospital or digitized hospital is soon to emerge, enabling early diagnosis and prevention. These trends all lead to more productivity in the healthcare industry. Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) are flexible enough to meet the challenges of these trends since they can be programmed post manufacture.Programable Logic devices make up a large portion of medical products. Altera FPGA offers medical equipment manufacturers a flexible, cost-effective path to successful system designs.Altera medical applications for programmable logic include Diagnostic imaging, Electromedical monitoring, Cardiac Rhythm Management and Life Science & Hospital Equipment.
Xilinx solutions for the medical industry have helped designers address the challenges of implementing the latest in imaging techniques and handling real-time video processing.
