Reliability and accuracy are key considerations for diagnostic and
therapy devices. Whether a therapist is using a high–tech stationary
bicycle helping a patient undergo rehabilitation, or monitoring the EKG
wave of patients after surgery, these devices need a core that is
powerful enough to acquire, process and interpret several parameters
all at once. Freescale’s 32–bit processors are ideal to do this and more.
Freescale offers a spectrum of processors (ColdFire, i.MX and Power
Architecture) in terms of performance and integration. Integrated USB
facilitates convenient data transfer from a device to a PC for
processing or long–term storage. LCD interfaces common on ColdFire
and i.MX processors provide clinicians and and patients a meaningful way
to visualize clinical data in real time.
