The medical industry is revamping. Conventional techniques of diagnosis and resultant therapies are becoming less invasive and more effective. Intelligent, connected portable devices are keeping patients out of hospitals and monitored in the comfort of their own homes. Semiconductor Technology in Medical devices takes part in a remarkable role in these innovations.
With a sundry portfolio of products and services, talented engineering staff with system expertise, a deep grasp of the quality, reliability, and long existence of demands of the medical market, and global manufacturing and logistics potential, Faststream Technologies qualifies medical device manufacturers to solve their distinctive design challenges with solutions that enhance lives.
Faststream Technologies is a semiconductor design company that designs and markets specialty memory products for high reliability, and extended temperature applications for industrial and medical applications. Quality, reliability, and sensitivity are the most significant for the equipment manufactured in the medical market segments. At Faststream Semiconductor Technology on Medical Device, excellent standards and reliability are designed, not just tested. The significance of quality and reliability starts at the earliest point of product design and continues at every step, right through to customer shipment.
Faststream Technologies provides a wide range of memory products for use in medical devices which incorporates Flash, Ultra-Low Power (ULP) SRAMs, PSRAMs, and Mobile DRAMs for power critical, portable applications.
Application Specific Integrated Circuit Design on Medical Device:
Application Specific Integrated Circuit is used nowadays in implantable medical devices that can supply therapy for a number of conditions, from pain management to epilepsy and psychological disorders. A medical IC can be used in devices programmed to deliver drugs in a more productive way to effectively treat and relieve patients’ conditions with very few side effects. As implantable devices need to be small, lightweight, and use less power, medical ICs aid you to come across the needs for medical device integration.
A diversity of supporting functions for implanted medical devices, such as sensing, stimulation, therapy delivery; memory storage; microprocessor; communications; and power management has been carried out through Medical IC. All these operations are being transferred in a small medical integrated circuit with a smaller footprint than other solutions. Unlike the commercial use of integrated circuits which can change with modern technology, integrated circuits for medical devices have a process growth that is less likely to necessary revisions, provides more quality, and offers a sturdy solution that works.
Our Medical ASIC is worldwide recognized, We provide innovative custom analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit solutions. We custom design ICs for medical devices with low power requirements and small form factors, for both implantable and external medical applications. Our integrated circuits for medical devices can be found in many class III implantable devices and the target customers vary from small firms to established medical device companies.

Medical Electronics for Home Care Solutions
An upcoming trend of patient care moving away from hospitals and clinics and into homes. As home care can help in enhance efficiency and lower costs incurred by doctors the Healthcare providers and hospitals also use this. This process can be accelerated by Portable medical electronics technology. In normal cases, portable medical devices are all battery-operated, micro-controlled handheld devices that take and analyze measurements using different bio-sensors on a patient.
These are the many functional blocks that are generally used in most portable home-based and consumer medical devices:
With Semiconductor Technology on Medical Device, Portable medical devices offer low-power consumption to enhance battery life. Like all designs, faster time-to-market, low cost, reliability, and small form factors are important.
Faststream provides the best solutions in Semiconductor Technology on Medical devices.
While engineering is generally about making trade-offs between opposing features, specifications, and space constraints. The demand in this market is often unsuitable—the need for a small form factor along with high functionality; low power consumption along with high-performance analog; and long battery life along with high processing capability.
We can take the example of the portable Patient Vital Signs Monitor, which measures blood pressure, heart rate, pulse oxygen, and temperature using IR thermometry. Using a programmable system-on-chip (PSoC) in this design reduces design complexity by offering configurable integration of the complete signal chain for analog signal processing, resulting in significant space and cost savings. By using a single PSoC all the control functions can operate in this design performing different tasks at different times depending on the operation taking place.
A Patient Vital Signs Monitor using PSoC has the benefit of emulating most of the required peripherals inside one chip. A single PSoC includes Flash and SRAM memory, an MCU, ADCs, PWM, filters, USB control, and capacitive sensing. LCD drive is integrated into the PSoC. Only the pressure transducer and the LCD display are external to PSoC. Clearly, there is an immediate component count reduction, with most peripheral components integrated into the SOC.
