Medical image signal processor with a shorter time to market

Medical image signal processor with a shorter time to market
OmniVision has announced the OVMed, a new mixed-signal Image Signal Processor (ISP) designed for medical, veterinarian and industrial endoscopy applications. The OVMed ISP offers image processing features and high image quality. It also integrates easily with commercial hardware and software, and meets stringent medical certification standards, thus decreasing development cost and time to market, allowing designers to focus on developing differentiated post-processing algorithms.

CMOS image sensor designed for endoscopic surgical procedures

CMOS image sensor designed for endoscopic surgical procedures
OmniVision has announced the OV2741, a new PureCel-S stacked-die sensor that extends OmniVision’s high definition (HD) medical image sensor family. The OV2741 provides 1080p full HD resolution and high image quality in a compact chip-scale package. It offers 1920x1080 resolution at a rate of 60 frames per second (FPS), for jitter-free, full-HD video. It also has a broadband double anti-reflective coating on its cover glass to eliminate glare, ghosting and reflections due to strong illumination.

Enabling remote control of sensing and drug delivery

Enabling remote control of sensing and drug delivery
MIT researchers, working with scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have developed a new way to power and communicate with devices implanted deep within the human body. Such devices could be used to deliver drugs, monitor conditions inside the body, or treat disease by stimulating the brain with electricity or light. The implants are powered by radio frequency waves, which can safely pass through human tissues.

Light-delivery technique improves biosensors

Light-delivery technique improves biosensors
There is a continuing need for practical chip-based sensors that can be used at the point of care to detect cancer and other diseases. A way to inject light into tiny silicon microdisks could help meet this need by bringing down the cost and improving the performance of chip-based biosensors. The advance could eventually lead to a portable and low cost optical sensor for early-stage cancer diagnostics.

Technology could help pregnant women detect health complications

Technology could help pregnant women detect health complications
Purdue University researchers are developing an app and wearable technology to enable pregnant women to use a smartphone to detect whether they have or are susceptible to a condition that could lead to serious health complications for them or their unborn child. The team, led by Craig Goergen, an assistant professor in Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, is developing a low-cost automated early detection sensor of preeclampsia.

Heart is where the chips are: next-gen wireless pacemakers

Heart is where the chips are: next-gen wireless pacemakers
A Rice University student team’s demonstration of a next-generation, wireless pacemaker array could point to the future of medical sensors. The Love and Pace team of Rice electrical and computer engineering seniors demonstrated its design for a pacemaker that would place a network of chips the size of a grain of rice in various places inside the heart. These would communicate with a base station located under a patient’s skin and charge via radio frequency.
