Würth Elektronik, a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components, and Valens Semiconductor, a provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the audio-video and automotive markets, launched a joint solution to enable medical image diagnosis and procedures with unprecedented video resolution. The offering encompasses secure, cost-effective, uncompressed, high-bandwidth video connectivity and advanced camera imaging. The joint reference design is currently under evaluation by leading medical imaging device manufacturers.
Medical imaging devices, such as MRIs, CTs, robotic surgery and endoscopy solutions, require high-bandwidth uncompressed video connectivity. Würth Elektronik and Valens Semiconductor have developed a solution that enables uncompressed [email protected]:4:4 video transmission over copper cable while complying with the strict medical isolation specifications.
Core components of the solution are the Valens Stello VS3000 chipset, compliant with the latest generation of the HDBaseT standard Spec 3.0, and the WE-LAN HDBaseT transformer from Würth Elektronik. This ensures galvanic isolation and compliance with the IEC 60601 standard for safe electrical equipment in the medical environment.
