Clear SOUP and COTS Software for Medical Device Development
October 26, 2011 // Chris Hobbs, QNX // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 366Ko
In many industries, manufacturers have reduced development times by using COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) software and hardware. Pressures to bring new, feature-rich products to market quickly affect medical device manufacturers as much as anyone, but the industry may be reluctant to follow suit. This is due to concerns that COTS implies SOUP (software of uncertain provenance) may compromise device safety and pre-market approval by the FDA and other regulatory agencies. While we should exercise diligence and caution when considering COTS software, COTS software may be perfectly acceptable, given stringent selection criteria and validation of the completed systems and devices

This month, Trinamic Motion Control is offering you to win one of four TMCM-1043 development kits for its highly integrated, NEMA 17-compatible TMCM-1043 stepDancer stepper motor module.
Offering designers an easy-to-use PC-based GUI that allows one-click modification of motor drive current, micro-stepping and other key parameters, the intuitive kits are custom designed and developed for direct mounting on a NEMA 17 motor. Pre-programmed and pre-configured with all operating parameters to support standard 1.5A (peak) motors, the TMCM-1043 board uses Trinamic´s single-axis TMC2660 stepper motor driver IC, which integrates a motor pre-driver and power MOSFETs.
