Manufacturers in the medical device industry—including medical PCB assembly and other electronic equipment - are required to meet high reliability and safety as medical devices are designed and built to preserve, save or enhance the quality of human life. The best way to minimize risk is to work with a medical device circuit board manufacturer that has experience in your industry.
Kingford provides one-stop PCB manufacturing and assembly medical equipment solution services. We strictly implement the ISO13485 international management system standard to provide high-reliability PCB manufacturing and assembly services for the medical and health industry. Our goal is to provide our customers with high-quality products. Medical PCBA processing services, while minimizing costs for customers, if you are looking for a one-stop medical PCB manufacturing and assembly service provider, then KINGFORD is your best choice.
Medical PCB Capabilities
Kingford has the ability to provide PCB prototypes or production quantities, both bare-board and assembled, for whatever stage in your medical device development process you’re in. Some of the medical systems our circuit boards are used for include:
ECG monitor: ECG monitoring is a means of monitoring the electrical activity of the heart. Ordinary ECG can only simply observe the short-term electrical activity at the time when the ECG is traced. Our PCBAs are at the core of these tools doing their job to provide the accurate data indicators.
Vital medical device: The ventilator is a vital medical device that can prevent and treat respiratory failure, reduce complications, and save and prolong the lives of patients. Our PCBAs help improve the quality of the patient’s life.
Oximeter equipment: Monitoring blood oxygen is a non-invasive operation, which can effectively monitor the blood oxygen in the body and play a key role in predicting changes in the condition. We build PCBAs for blood oxygen monitor tools.
Our PCB Assembly and Design Process
The medical device field is just one of many industries that has come to rely on printed circuit boards for highly specialized equipment. As a professional PCB Manufacturer, Kingford is fully capable of meeting the stringent requirements of the health and medical field when it comes to PCB assembly. Our extensive experience designing and manufacturing PCBAs gives us the knowledge and skills to navigate the various industry challenges our customers to face and deliver an appropriate PCBA solution.
Key Considerations for Medical PCB Assembly
Consistency – The prime requirement of a Medical PCB is to provide reliable output each time it is used, as it can affect human life. Hence precision is an important factor in designing a medical PCB.
Safety – Some medical devices are used as wearable or implantable tiny circuits on the human body. Protecting the patient against any hazards due to extreme temperature or vibration is a basic requirement in the medical PCB design.
Convenience – User-friendliness is an essential factor while designing a medical PCB. The easy accessibility and durability of the product have a significant impact and have to be considered here.
Lifespan – On-board battery or power design has to be done efficiently to ensure a long lifespan of the medical equipment. Understanding the frequent failure points and designing a robust product can improve the device’s lifetime.
Best Practices for Medical Device PCB Layouts
It’s always best to follow good practices with PCB layout to prevent board-level faults. In the case of medical devices, lives are dependent on the successful operation of the PCB, so following best practices is not just recommended, but essential.
- Keep trace lengths and sensitive signals as short and direct as possible
- Use power planes and ground planes to shorten decoupling capacitor signals and provide good ground coverage
- Use differential pairs/signals for high speed data traces to minimize reflection
- Build in enough copper for high power dissipation and minimized voltage drop for high energy traces/planes
- Isolate temperature sensitive components from other components
- Always double check reflow soldering requirements to make sure that some components aren’t having their max temperature exceeded during assembly
