LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hypertronics and UBM Canon's Medical Device Media Group will co-host a seminar that aims to teach designers about the art of component selection in an advanced medical system. Dubbed, Strategies for Avoiding Device Failure, the seminar will be led by industry expert Robert Hult. As the Director of Product Technology for Bishop & Associates, Hult has nearly 40 years experience in the connector industry, with stops at Foxconn, Intel, and Tyco Electronics.
Hult's presentation will look at making safe, dependable choices when it comes to component selection. This fits well with Hypertronics' strategy, a company that is well respected for being a global supplier of high reliability, high performance interconnect solutions.
As most design engineers are aware, there are many potential points of failure on an advanced medical system. Hult will point out the obvious and not-so-obvious trouble spots, as well as their causes, and what you can do to avoid them. Devices covered in the discussion will include MRI, digital imaging, ultrasound, electrophysiology catheters, defibrillators, patient monitoring equipment, and implantable devices. One particular area of focus will be the interconnect system. Ample time will be allowed for Q&A and networking.
"I'm really excited to hear what Robert has to say. He's a veteran that has been in the trenches when it comes to advanced system design," said Rich Nass, Director of Content for UBM Canon's Medical Devices Group. "When you're designing products that save people's lives, the mantra is that it has to work right all the time, every time."
