Printed circuit boards have become critically important in the medical field. As technology has advanced, more and more medical diagnostic, research and treatment methods have become computerized, which means PCBs for medical equipment are becoming a standard requirement throughout the industry.
Applications and Types of PCBs for the Medical Industry
The range of printed circuit boards applications in the medical field is vast and ever-growing. You can find medical printed circuit boards in everything from pacemakers, defibrillators and heart monitors in the case of cardiovascular medical specification PCBs, to medical imaging systems, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasonic equipment and more. You will also find PCBs for medical devices like body temperature monitors, blood glucose monitors and electrical muscle stimulation equipment. PCBs for medical equipment are everywhere.
Because the internal computer circuits for many medical devices must be quite small to fit into the device, businesses in the medical device industry will often require high-density interconnect PCBs, or HDI PCBs. These printed circuit boards pack a lot of connections into a minute area, allowing for a smaller board you can fit into a smaller device.
Medical industry professionals will also often select flex or rigid-flex PCBs for their important medical devices. This is because medical devices often do not conform to typical standards of PCB shape and size, and medical device professionals will want to make sure their printed circuit boards can fit into as small of an area as possible while still remaining resistant to damage.
