Intellectual Property for Portable Patient Monitoring Systems

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Demonstrating the success of its low-power and power-efficient programmable technologies, Actel Corporation today announced that Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), China's leading developer and manufacturer of medical devices, has chosen Actel's flash-based ProASIC3 field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for implementation in its portable patient monitoring systems. Selected for the low-power, enhanced security, performance, and firm-error immunity it offers, the 60,000-gate ProASIC3 A3P060 is being deployed to provide the highest possible levels of secure patient data management.

Following the successful deployment of Actel's ProASIC3, Mindray plans to continue to leverage Actel flash-based FPGAs in next-generation products, including other patient monitoring devices, diagnostic laboratory instruments and ultrasound imaging systems. Actel expects that IGLOO, its award-winning, low-power, flash-based FPGA, will be implemented in Mindray's next product release. Mindray also plans to incorporate Actel's ARM processor-enabled, flash-based FPGAs into their medical devices.

"This partnership helps advance our portable patient monitor line by bringing us the reliable low-power and security functionalities needed to eliminate power surges and errors associated with SRAM-based solutions," said Mr. Li Yao, Mindray's manager of R&D. "Actel's flash-based solutions, such as the [A3P060] ProASIC3, have leading power, security and radiation resistance capabilities that far exceed alternative FPGA technologies."

Mindray's comprehensive portfolio of patient monitoring systems ranges in security complexity from those that contain three to four security modules to those that contain 12. Each module is designed to monitor and control the security of one element of a patient's data, such as heart rate and blood pressure etc

"Mindray's selection of our ProASIC3 devices in its industry-leading, high-quality portable patient monitoring systems underscores the advantages that flash-based FPGAs provide for today's portable applications," said Rick Lain, director of sales, Asia Pacific at Actel. "Providing unprecedented low power, small footprint and security in a single chip, Actel's feature-rich FPGAs uniquely possess features highly sought after by the ever-growing international community of portable electronics designers."
