ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Oct. 12—DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical device design and manufacturing company, today announced its participation at the DevCon 2015 Renesas Developers Conference, October 12–15 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Garden Grove, California.
DeviceLab’s participation will consist of two key functions—as an exhibitor and as a lecturer—that have been carefully designed to spotlight Apollo™ wireless medical device electronic systems platform that was introduced last year.
Named after the mythological Greek god of healing and medicine, the Apollo platform is DeviceLab’s solution to address numerous, medical industry needs, including rapid development time, longevity in product lifecycle, RTOS certified for safety critical applications and robust processing capability.
DevCon 2015 Exhibitor: Demonstrating the Flagship Apollo™ Wireless Medical Device Platform
DeviceLab will be exhibiting a unique display on the main floor that was developed with the Apollo platform—described by DeviceLab CEO and founder Dac Vu as a “futuristic patient care environment with all the bells and whistles.”
Featuring a full-size translucent mannequin on a custom-designed examination table, the display will demonstrate DeviceLab’s state-of-the-art capabilities for developing cutting-edge electronic systems. The platform is integrated in the internal structure of the patient bed, simulating various medical applications such as monitors, device controls and touchscreen color displays.
Apollo seamlessly and rapidly integrates multiple complementary technologies such as touchscreens, sensors, RFID, wireless charging, digital signal processing and IO devices (e.g., USB). The system is designed to facilitate smooth transition between sensors, algorithms, signal processing, systems control and color graphic displays.
DeviceLab is using several Renesas product lines to accomplish the Apollo platform objectives, including RZ, Renesas Synergy™ S7 and Renesas Synergy™ S3 processors. Renesas technologies are integrated in the Apollo designs with various wireless interfaces for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular.
Active projects at DeviceLab using the Apollo platform include patient monitors, medical imaging systems, clinical diagnostic systems and patient fluid emission control systems.
DevCon 2015 Lecturer: Reducing Cost and Development Time for Innovative Medical Products
DeviceLab’s Director of Electronics and Software Khoi Turner will present a one-hour lecture, “Medical Designs Based on the Renesas Synergy™ Platform are Innovative, Secure and More Affordable Than Ever Before.”
Turner’s lecture will explain how medical devices designed by DeviceLab’s new Apollo platform—and the Renesas Synergy Platform—can bring innovative and complex medical products to market quickly and affordably per FDA/CE regulatory requirements.
Additionally, Turner will describe Renesas Synergy’s ability to combine the MCU+RTOS+SW support in a common platform that allows medical products to effectively and securely communicate with each other, provide quick access to vital patient information, and be updated in real-time.
