ADI provides healthcare solutions to help customers to solve challenges. It covers Vital signs measurement, life sciences & medical instrumentation, disease management & wellness and Imaging.
By transmitting acoustic energy into the body and receiving and processing the returning reflections, ultrasound systems can generate images of internal organs and structures, map blood flow and tissue motion, and provide highly accurate blood velocity information.Ultrasound systems include transducers, high voltage multiplexing, high voltage transmitters, transmit/receive switches, receive-path analog front end (AFE), beamformers, beamformed digital signal processing, display processing, and peripherals. The AFE includes a low noise amplifier (LNA); a variable gain amplifier (VGA); an antialias filter (AAF); and an analog-to-digital converter (ADC).
Continuous Non Invasive Blood Pressure (cNIBP) is one kind of technology to monitor the human body's systolic and diastolic blood pressure real time or in short time interval. ADI provides an extensive selection of high integration PPG AFE, ECG AFE, low power MCU, power management solution and flexible discrete component to maximize product quality and reliability for wearable cNIBP application. In addition, ADI provides evaluation boards, simulation tools and applications expertise to support customer design and development efforts.
A wearable healthcare device can be described as an autonomous, noninvasive system that performs a specific medical function such as monitoring or support. ADI provides an extensive selection of high integration AFEs, motion sensors, low power MCUs, and power management solutions to maximize product quality and reliability for wearable devices. In addition, ADI provides evaluation boards, simulation tools, and applications expertise to support customer design and development efforts.
The purpose of medical X-ray imaging examinations is to either identify abnormalities in a patient or to classify a patient as being healthy while minimizing radiation exposure. Digital X-ray (DR) and computed tomography (CT) are the most frequently used X-ray imaging technologies and applications. ADI provides an extensive selection of analog data acquisition system amplifier, data conversion, signal processing, and power management solutions to maximize image quality and to reduce power consumption and cost for DR and CT equipment. In addition, ADI provides evaluation boards, simulation tools, and applications expertise to support customer design and development efforts.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a noninvasive imaging technology that generates 3D medical images by detecting gamma rays emitted when certain radioactively doped sugars are injected into a human body. A PET scan produces digital pictures that can, in many cases, identify the most common forms of cancer, including lung, breast, colorectal, lymphoma, and melanoma. Technically, PET is a medical imaging technology that images the biology of disorders at the molecular level before anatomical changes are visible. The gamma rays are generated when a positron emitted from the radioactive material collides with an electron in tissue. The resulting collision produces a pair of gamma ray photons that emanate from the collision site in opposite directions and are detected by gamma ray detectors arranged around the human body.
Biochemical analyzers use many electrochemical and optical techniques to analyze blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, and other biological samples. The most widely used techniques are optically based measurements, and examples include colorimetric, absorption, spectrometric, and fluoroscopic detection methods. These processes can measure chemicals such as antigens, molecules, and proteins in body fluids. These techniques are widely used at all levels of hospitals, clinics, epidemic prevention stations, and family planning service providers because of their fast measurement ability, high sensitivity, and accuracy when detecting even small doses of chemicals.
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potential life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient. ADI provides an extensive selection of amplifier, data conversion, signal processing, audio processing, isolation, and power management solutions to maximize product quality and reliability for AED applications. In addition, ADI provides evaluation boards, simulation tools, and applications expertise to support customer design and development efforts.
As global healthcare costs increase, more and more emphasis is being placed on personal health management as a means to proactively reduce the risk of health issues and, therefore, reduce the number of doctor and/or hospital visits. Tracking one's daily activity is growing in popularity due largely to its simple yet effective impact on promoting a healthy lifestyle. Extremes of activity monitoring extend from monitors such as pedometers, which track walking, running, and simple exercise, where counting steps can determine how many calories have been burned, to fall detectors, which are predominantly used for monitoring elderly people to both report and prevent falls from occurring. Besides standalone activity monitoring devices, this functionality has been integrated into a variety of home healthcare devices.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) systems record the electrical activity of the heart over time by measuring electric potentials on the surface of living tissue. ADI offers a comprehensive portfolio of high performance linear, mixed-signal, MEMS, and digital signal processing technologies for ECG designs. Our data converters, amplifiers, microcontrollers, digital signal processors, MEMS inertial sensors, isolators, and power management products are backed by leading design tools, applications support, and systems expertise.
