Webinar: Application-specific ICs: a unique way to customize medtech solutions

June 10, 2021 | Webinar on demand

If you follow the trends in medical innovation, you know that microelectronics and silicon chip technologies are revolutionizing the medtech industry. Thereby improving the quality of healthcare and thus patients’ lives.

Application-specific ICs – so called ASICs – are a unique way to customize healthcare solutions. By reducing form factors and integrating sensing and communication features, they benefit both healthcare providers and patients. Moreover, an ASIC is an excellent way to protect your IP.

Developing an ASIC can be a complex process. That’s where you need support – whether it’s for design, development of prototype samples or volume production of qualified packaged products.

This webinar will present the latest technology trends in medtech, illustrated with ASIC examples from prototype development to commercial product.

What you will learn:

  • Why is an ASIC the most disruptive technology for your medical device?
  • What are the key steps?
  • How can innovators get support to realize their idea in silicon?

This webinar is designed for professionals in the medtech sector who want to increase their knowledge of ASIC technologies.
