Wi-Fi Connectivity For Medical Devices

Medical device connectivity has many unique requirements beyond what is demanded of the typical wireless device. Wi-Fi silicon suppliers typically focus their attention on requirements for high-volume consumer applications because that is where the bulk of their business comes from. But medical device designers have vastly different requirements in terms of reliability, quality, and performance.

This white paper provides information on the steps required to successfully evaluate and implement Wi-Fi connectivity for your medical device design. We’ll dive into:

  • The needs and benefits of hospital wi-fi networks, specific connectivity requirements for medical devices
  • Software and hardware considerations when integrating Wi-Fi connectivity into your design
  • How the Silex portfolio has evolved over the past decade to meet these demanding requirements.
