Q&A: The trends in the medical embedded market
July 16, 2012 // By Jens Unrath
Q: What trends do you see in the medical market? A: There are many different trends in the medical market. Looking at the high-end systems we see continuous improvements in image processing for diagnostics and surgery.
The time savings due to faster image processing leads to broader use of image based diagnostics as well as reduced cost per patient. At the same time the image quality is improved from generation to generation. This constant improvement of the processing performance comes either from the higher processing power of the processors themselves or the implementation of graphic cards for ´general-purpose computing on graphics processing units´ (GPGPU) or the use of dedicated FPGA based designs in smaller systems. A second large trend is based on the ´iPad-Factor´. Users expect from future medical devices a similar easy usage model as from their consumer multi-touch devices.
