1) Diagnostic imaging
FPGA are major hardware pieces in vital healthcare equipment. When the word diagnostic imaging is mentioned, some of the first things that should come to your mind are X-ray scans, ultrasounds, PET, CT, and MRI scans.
Data acquisition cards are used to acquire the input, and then these are sent along to processing, where filtering and algorithmic processing enable image reconstruction.
Altera's Stratix V family are ideal FPGA for diagnostic imaging applications.
Electromedical products focus on three key segments. This includes patient monitoring, ventilation & life support, and anesthesia.
Altera's Cyclone and Max CPLD families are ideal for this sort of application. The FPGA is optimized to support applications that rely on high efficiency and low cost.
3) Cardiac Management
Automatic external defibrillators are used to jump-start a heart that has failed due to heart attack or cardiac arrest. The systems are simple and designed to enable ease of use. Low cost Cyclone and Max CPLD are ideal Altera FPGA for AEDs.
4) Portable, home-based medical equipment
This is a currently expanding market - it's growing in line with the wearables market. Consumers prefer the idea of relying on a low-cost alternative to meeting with a physician. This is less intrusive, convenient, and also less expensive.
The household product will be designed to meet several key requirements - it will be of lower cost, portable and lightweight. Plus product manufacturers must design the product knowing that consumers expect the same degree of reliability and accuracy that they can expect from an actual office-based visit.
