Melexis announces the world’s smallest medical grade FIR sensor, assembled in a surface mount package for use in a variety of applications, including wearables and, in particular, advanced in-ear-devices (so-called hearables) and clinical point-of-care applications where highly accurate human body temperature measurement is required.
The new medical-grade MLX90632 is optimized for the normal human body temperature range, where it offers medical-grade accuracy of ± 0.2 °C thanks to advanced in-factory calibration procedures.
This year SEMICON Europa (12-15th November 2019, Munich) will have a strong focus on state-of-the-art medical technologies (MedTech), offering the SMART MedTech Forum as Europe’s first event to foster collaboration in semiconductor value chains and medical technologies.
Digital medicine promises to prevent and cure diseases and transform health care through personalized treatment. EPFL experts Lausanne, Philips, Robert Bosch GmbH, and Bart’s Heart Center will discuss considerable advances in personalized treatment, including the use of artificial organs, organs-on-a-chips and human avatars as the next paradigm in health care.
