Industrial Trends in Medical Device Testing
Rohde & Schwarz
Abstract: There are over 20 billion wireless connected products in the world today. A large majority of these products operate using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or an LTE connection. This means that the likelihood of packet collision is very high. Pretty much everyone at some point have faced the effects of this, while streaming a show on Netflix or a video on YouTube on our phone. The buffer wheel comes up and video stream starts to “lag”, deteriorating our user experience. This is caused not only because of a weak internet connection but is a combination of other transmission in the vicinity of the device. Connected medical products also take advantage of the unlicensed Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection and are subjected to similar coexistence problems. And the result of failure is not always limited to a bad user experience but could potentially be life-threatening. In this presentation, Naseef will demonstrate how wireless coexistence is tested in an anechoic chamber for compliance using state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment and a commercial wireless patient monitoring system.
