Tech Theater Presentation

Ram Vijayagopal, R&D Manager will discuss The Untold Challenges of Pressure Sensor Integration into Medical Devices.


Pressure sensor integration presents interesting challenges at every stage of development. Proof of concept stages are more concerned about size, cost, biocompatibility, and power consumption. Decisions about the choice of sensor, type of measurement and required accuracy can have a big impact on system cost and schedule. As the design progresses, usability, patient hazards, reliability, and sterilization methods gain importance. Usability can have a big impact on catheter deployed sensors in regard to maneuverability and visibility. Towards the later stages, process development, and yield improvement become important. Knowledge of the entire process allows a medical device company to achieve the right tradeoff between performance, cost and safety risks that can be afforded by the development schedule.

Date and Time: Thursday, February 13 at 12:30 pm in the Tech Theater (637)
