Analog Devices Healthcare Director Delivers Speech on Role of Analog Semiconductors in Next-Generation Portable Medical Equipment : ADI's Pat O'Doherty is a featured speaker at electronica 2008.

During his speech today at electronica 2008, Pat O’Doherty, healthcare segment director for Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), spotlighted how sophisticated healthcare semiconductor technology is paving the way for the development of increasingly smaller and more powerful medical devices for use in both the home and doctors’ offices. These types of devices include those that check glucose levels and blood pressure, check heart rates, monitor activity levels, and distribute medication for pain management. For patients, the benefits of smaller, portable devices translate into easier access to care, less hospital visits, and reduced medical costs.

MUNICH, Germany (Business Wire EON) November 11, 2008 -- O'Doherty discussed how the growing demand for point-of-care and home-use medical devices is making systems requirements progressively complex and demanding for medical equipment designers who must reduce the size, improve ease of use, and increase the performance of next-generation portable medical devices. These new system-level demands mean that analog semiconductor manufacturers must rise to the challenge of developing breakthrough building-block ICs that make the design of next-generation products possible. O'Doherty also underscored how developing future innovative capabilities for medical devices is increasingly dependent on the continuous and effective sharing of information between both system and analog integrated circuit designers.

In addition, O'Doherty explained how the ability of semiconductor manufacturers to develop a deep system-level understanding and provide maximum value to their customers is becoming one of the most important competitive dimensions in the analog semiconductor arena.
