Kyocera America has supported the medical electronics industry for over two decades. Medical electronics incorporate a vast array of circuitry that provide physicians, nurses, and researchers the needed tools to monitor, analyze, diagnose, and most importantly, improve, our health. This category of electronics varies from the smallest implantable device to large-scale scanning and diagnostic equipment.
From the early beginning of the industry with the advent of the first pacemakers, medical companies have challenged the electronics industry to increase reliability and available circuit materials to deliver the latest innovations in healthcare technology. Today those innovations include increased functional integration incorporating wireless multimedia transmission, secure data transactions, sensing, and telemetry to accomodate the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market segment.
Kyocera America provides packages and substrates for
- Neurostimulators, Neuromodulators
- Surgical Tools
- DNA Sequencing
- CAT Scan and other high-resolution imaging equipment
- Patient monitoring equipment
Packages for the implantable medical electronics industry typically require the chemical inertness and mechanical stability of ceramic and can include brazed components for applications requiring hermeticity.
Examples of packages used in medical electronics
- BGA MEMS
- Metallized Substrates
