Electronic components and power circuits form an integral part of medical devices. They are crucial to the performance of diverse functions and can range from something as simple as a switch to sophisticated implantable sensors.
The rising demand for electronic medical implantable devices, wearable medical devices, and robotics technology has increased the demand for advanced electronic components for critical applications. Electronic components such as capacitors, connectors, feedthroughs, resistors, flex circuits, integrated circuits and semiconductors are some of the critical components needed for medical devices.

Choosing the optimal medical power supply equipment
Medical devices are highly dependent on the design of medical power supply for effective power and communications in implantable or external medical devices, as well as safe and reliable operation.
Medical power supplies must comply with the IEC 60601 standard, which requires at least two means of protection.
To design and manufacture safe medical equipment, certain standards need to be carefully determined, for example meeting the creepage, clearance and leakage current criteria for designing an AC/DC power supply for medical devices, providing suitable insulation and following electromagnetic inference (EMI) criteria.
