Technological advances are opening up a whole new world for medical electronics designers.

Jamie Hartford

The world’s smallest pacemaker, smart contact lenses, medical devices with embedded vision—none of these technologies would be possible without recent advances that have made electronics smaller, smarter, and more energy efficient.

A new MD+DI ebook sponsored by Proto Labs will explore developments in power management, sensing, flexible electronics, and miniaturization that are leading to huge leaps forward in the realm of medical electronics. The ebook, titled Engineering the Unthinkable: Exploring the Cutting Edge of Electronics, will bring readers up to date on all the advances they need to know to stay on top of this rapidly evolving field.

Articles in the ebook cover everything from flex circuits and tiny batteries to wirelessly transmitted power and embedded vision. It also chronicles how companies such as Medtronic and Google have harnessed advances in medical electronics to create devices previously thought impossible. And with the electronics landscape changing at such a fast pace, readers will also benefit from an article on dealing with electronic component obsolescence.

If you’re involved in medical electronics design, be sure to check it out.
