Mansfield, Texas: Distribution company Mouser Electronics has launched a medical applications microsite devoted to patient monitoring and diagnosis applications. Medical electronics represents one of the fastest growing industries and is projected to grow more than threefold over the next five years.
The medical industry also is one of the most demanding for design engineers due to complex technologies, regulatory considerations, and long product development cycles. Mouser has created a resource to keep engineers informed about advances in medical design.
The site focuses on patient monitoring and diagnostics using devices such as pulse oximeters, blood pressure monitors, digital thermometers, and digital stethoscopes. Design engineers get an overview of each device, and by using block diagram navigation, they can select solutions from major component manufacturers.
