As technology advances in the medical device space, electronics design is constantly adapting to meet industry needs. Technological innovation in the medical device space has continued to superminiaturize electronic circuits and advance capacitor materials and design; medical implantables, in particular, have seen rapid development over a short time span.
Capacitors are one of the many components that need to meet the demands of innovation. Strict guidelines place more weight on reliability grade, size, and durability over other common parameters of importance for consumer devices and electronics. Here we begin to explore regulation, testing procedure, and supplier considerations to help you choose the best components for your medical application.
