PCB Solutions for Bioscience & Medical Hardware

 

Medical and biosciences devices hold much promise for our future, enriching lives, enhancing lifestyle, providing better wellness and promising more drug-free remedies every year. In spite of the research and growth in the industry, challenges in engineering the devices that make our lives better and longer continually rise. New products and techniques for managing health through technology might introduce new hazards. You need tools that will help you design in a way that mitigates risk to both patient and financial success of new products.

MAKE IT SAFE, MAKE IT USER-FRIENDLY

 

It’s a strict market for compliance. After all, a patient’s survival may be depending on the devices you design. Even presumably low-risk devices can be rendered harmful if misused, and you can’t always predict who is using your product in a stressful situation. That’s why you need tools that help you design to well-documented specifications and standards like ISO 62366. You need to be able to model the form, fit, and user interface aspects of the design up-front. You need tools that interact well with MCAD and industrial design without holding you back on requirements and ECO checklists. MADPCB provides high quality PCB manufacturing, assembly and design service China.

 

 

DESIGN ERGONOMIC, USABLE MEDICAL DEVICES

 

Meeting safe usability and product design goals does not have to be a burden anymore.

 

lWith Native 3D modeling, collaboration with the industrial designers and mechanical engineers is easier than ever. If a design flaw in the user interface is discovered, changes can be rapidly propagated from the MCAD model directly into the PCB design and vice-versa.

 

lCreepage and clearance distances defined in PCB design rules can govern parts placement, and this can be pushed back to MCAD for a design compromise.

 

lWith advanced version control and project management capabilities, you can work to requirements and capture every change for product certifications.

 

 

FORM TO FIT THE BODY

 

The wearable electronics market is growing by almost 18% year-over-year and is expected to surpass US $8 Billion by 2018. Whether you’re making the latest in fitness devices, health diagnostics, or automated therapy devices, you have the unique challenge of designing the hardware to fit human body. Considering the rigidity of electronic devices and traditional PCBs, flexible circuit technology and rigid-flex become a natural choice. You need tools that will enable advanced layer stack design along with proper 3D modeling of the flexible substrate to guarantee correct form. And with more and more dense circuits having to fit snugly in and around a person, embedding components within the board can often be the only way to get your design to fit.

 

 

FLEXIBLE & EMBEDDED IN THE TRUE SENSE

 

Our tools are the first and only tools to natively model rigid-flex PCB designs in full 3D, as well as embedded active and passive components and cavities for containing them within the rigid board substrate sections.

 

lAdvanced layer stack management allows configuration and report generation of multiple layer stack sub-sets for fabricating flexible, rigid-flex, and embedded component cavities.

 

lNative 3D rigid-flex modeling along with 3D models of components means you can design the board to fold in the right places, with the right bend angles and radii.

lReal-time 3D clearance checking shows where the component bodies will interfere when folded, so you can move them to get everything in exactly the right place.

 

l3D STEP export of the design in folded and unfolded states means you can accurately determine assembly sequences for your product, optimize production, and pass back an accurate 3D model of the rigid-flex design to the MCAD industrial design team.

 

 

BARRIERS TO FDA 510(K) APPROVAL

 

The average time to approve a new medical electronic product is 145 days according to FDA published data, even though the FDA themselves have a policy of 90 days for processing applications. The FDA states this is because submittals usually have inadequate supporting data, lacking accurate device descriptions and traceable documentation[ref]. 55 additional days or more due to bad or missing compliance data can hamper what could have been the successful launch of your new product.

 

 

GET DESIGN DOCUMENTATION INTO A COMPLETE LIFECYCLE-MANAGED PACKAGE

 

Properly manage data provides an easy-to-use framework for collecting and publishing the right data not only for manufacturing purposes but also for certifications and lifecycle approvals.

 

lCreate correctly formatted, predictable, reliable data release bundles and assign unique identifiers for each revision, managing the lifecycle of the data for fabrication, assembly, and documentation outputs.

 

lUse Managed Projects, Version Control, Lifecycle Management, and To-Do lists to manage and track certification-critical tasks, feeding to documentation and reports.

 

lEstablish lifecycle-managed predefined configurations (configuration management) for generated outputs, user profiles, schematics, and PCB project templates. Each time a new product design starts, you then have a guaranteed, correct-by-configuration project and template set.

 

lGive the right access to the right data and configurations to the correct people, so every change is approved and documentation captured.
