Molex will showcase technology for helping medical design engineers produce smaller, portable devices at the MD&M West conference, Feb. 11-13, in Anaheim, CA.
Joe Macomber, product manager from Molex subsidiary Polymicro Technologies, will present in the Tech Theater on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The discussion, titled "Advantages of Pure Fused Silica Capillary Tubing in Medical Applications," will focus on the importance of selecting the most appropriate tubing substrate, as well as the advantages of pure synthetic fused silica capillary tubing over other commonly employed tubing substrates.
"When looking to get the best performance out of innovative, new medical devices, more and more design engineers are realizing the importance of the underlying electronic interconnects and associated technologies," said Anthony Kalaijakis, strategic medical market manager, Molex. "Because we always strive to provide our customers with products that can be easily integrated, Molex solutions are incredibly effective and efficient. And, the earlier in the design process we get involved, the greater the benefit is for customers, the end user and ultimately the patient."
Products on display will include the Molex HOZOX EMI absorption tape and sheets, which utilize a dual-layer design to maximize EMI noise mitigation performance. The magnetic layer's powder composite absorbs lower frequency electromagnetic energy while the conductive layer's powder and high loss dielectric resin absorbs high frequency electromagnetic energy, the company says.
Affinity Medical recently introduced the MediSpec Silicone Cable Solution. The silicon overmolding is not only durable and flexible, but protects the cable core from harsh environments encountered during use and sterilization.
Products for use in multiple medical applications are available from Polymicro Technologies, a Molex subsidiary that supplies silica capillary tubing and specialty optical fibers, optical fiber and capillary assemblies, discrete micro components and quartz optical fiber ferrules.
The company will also showcase its MediSpec technology, and custom printed circuit assemblies.
