Memory Makes Medical Possible

From advanced, AI-powered surgical robots, immersive VR/AR gear, sophisticated diagnostics equipment like MRIs, CAT-scans, X-rays, and heart monitors to wearable health devices and communicators, it’s medical equipment that supports the hands, eyes, minds and passion of medical professionals. Nearly all medical equipment has memory, many with embedded components such as DDR SDRAMs, Flash eMMCs, and Flash SD Cards. These devices must operate reliably for extended periods of time and frequently have a long lifecycle.

Sourcing components for long lifecycle applications is a challenge because memory suppliers tend to chase the main market drivers, including computing/cloud/storage servers and consumer electronics favoring next-gen products over established technologies used in medical devices. The challenge is that older, let alone legacy products are pre-maturely abandoned, making sourcing for a heart monitor design that may have a 15-year production life difficult at best. Our business model enables us to extend component lifecycles and we make it easy to get data sheets, qual reports and samples online to qualify us quickly.
