Leveraging COM Express for Medical Equipment Design


Modern day medical applications have a wide spectrum of needs from the demanding computing requirements of optical imaging technologies to the compact form factor and low power consumption necessary for mobile diagnostic equipment. Since medical applications also deal with human life, the equipment deployed also requires the highest safety and reliability standards.

This paper discusses the key factors medical equipment designers need to consider, and how the agility and reliability of COM Express systems address these concerns.

  • Considerations for designing medical equipment
  • All-in-one design vs. ready-made embedded systems
  • Form factors and performance requirements for a range of applications
  • Critical medical concerns
  • Solutions
