Enables digitisation of healthcare that has the potential to radically change patient care and significantly reduce healthcare costs
congatec presents the latest embedded computing and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for medical imaging and diagnostics, operating theatres as well as mobile emergency and intensive care equipment. Advanced technologies are driving the demand for AI from pharmaceutical companies to hospitals, with the healthcare AI market forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 43.6% by 2027.
“Empowered by embedded computing, artificial intelligence is accelerating the speed of insights from medical imaging and big data analytics to improve patient health forecasts and early detection of diseases. The digitisation of healthcare has the potential to radically change patient care and significantly reduce healthcare costs. We equip developers of intelligent medical devices and healthcare solutions with appropriate application-ready building blocks to enable them to quickly and efficiently turn their smart solutions into reality,” says Fred Barden, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at congatec.
The technologies highlight Intel Core and Intel Atom processor (codename Tiger Lake and Elkhart Lake) based solutions with OpenVino implementations as well as the NXP i.MX8 portfolio with integrated neural processing unit (NPU). For medical device engineers, it is of utter importance to understand the different solution approaches to identify the best platform and ecosystem for their dedicated systems.
Also, the new PICMG COM-HPC Computer-on-Module standard offers to accelerate the development of the next-generation of connected medical computers and edge servers with massive bandwidth and connectivity.
