Non-Magnetic Capacitors for Medical Imaging Applications

Posted by Peter Matthews on Sep 18, 2019 10:46:00 AM

Imaging systems account for a significant portion of the medical devices and electronics industry. There is an expanding range of imaging modalities, and one of the most common is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI equipment uses a strong magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create cross sectional images of the body; these images enable health care professionals to investigate and diagnose without the need for an invasive procedure.

Navigating Capacitor Screening Standards

Posted by Bob Nelson on Aug 14, 2019 9:25:00 AM

Compared to other applications, a medical implant is a rather benign environment for a capacitor; it’s temperature-controlled with a relatively low voltage. That being said, the success of a capacitor in a medical implant relies heavily on manufacturing components to avoid failures and the know-how to screen for any production discrepancies. As the reliability grade of a component progresses, more screening and testing is required to ensure that only the most robust parts make it to the finished product.
