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.

Capacitor Selection: Meeting the Demands of Medical Innovation

Posted by Peter Matthews on Apr 16, 2019 9:24:00 AM

As technology advances in the medical device space, electronics design is constantly adapting to meet industry needs. Since implantable medical devices must be embedded into the body, one of the main goals is to reduce physiological burden by minimizing the need for invasive surgeries. To achieve these goals, capacitors are just one of the many components that need to meet the demands of innovation, which today most commonly means the super-miniaturization of electronic circuits and advancements in capacitor materials and design.
