The medical industry is changing. Traditional methods of diagnoses and resultant therapies are becoming less invasive and more effective. Intelligent, connected portable devices are keeping patients out of hospitals and monitored in the comfort of their own homes.
Semiconductor technology plays a significant role in these innovations.
With a diverse portfolio of products and services, talented engineering staff with system expertise, a deep understanding of the quality, reliability and longevity requirements of the medical market, and global manufacturing and logistics capability, ON Semiconductor enables medical device manufacturers to solve their unique design challenges with solutions that improve lives.
Hearing loss is a silent problem that often goes untreated for years. Recent studies have shown that adults with untreated hearing loss have significantly higher rates for psychosocial disorders such as depression and anxiety, are at higher risk of developing dementia, and incur higher medical bills compared to those without hearing loss.
Medical Imaging Devices
ON Semiconductor provides advanced capabilities for the latest high resolution medical imaging devices.
Portable Medical Devices
Portable medical device use is rapidly expanding as advancements in wireless technologies have increased patients’ mobility at hospital or at home. Devices are used in ever-increasing applications such as cardiac, respiratory, and fitness & wellness.
The rise of point-of-care technologies and devices has allowed for more testing and diagnosis close to the patient, resulting in increased effectiveness and success rates. Advancements in medical testing technologies (blood glucose, oxygen saturation, rapid strep, etc.), and minimally to non-invasive genomic diagnoses such as liquid biopsies, have presented patients with improved point-of-care diagnostics and faster access to treatment options.
