Back to blogging about electronics (the medical kind)

I’ve been blogging about medical issues lately, but mostly as they relate to medical electronics. I’ve been posting those blogs on our sister site, Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry, aka MD+DI, but they really belong here on MED, the acronym we use for Medical Electronics Design.

The issues associated with medical electronics and embedded systems, which I’ve been writing about for many years have a lot of similarities. Like medical, the priority list for many embedded systems includes performance, security, availability of components, etc. While cost is on the list, it’s generally not at the top of the list. Those medical devices (at least the kind that house electronics) typically contain a processor, an operating system, lots of analog and digital circuitry, and so on.

So the bottom line is that I’ll be contributing and blogging regularly in this space about issues related to medical electronics. If you have questions or want to know about a specific issue related to medical electronics, drop me a line, at
