AR Multistar™ Multi-Tone Tester

AR Multistar™ Multi-Tone Tester

The Model MT06000 (Multistar™ multi-tone tester) is a RF radiated immunity system designed with medical product testing in mind. The MT06000 provides a test organization the opportunity to significantly reduce radiated immunity test time by a factor equivalent to the tones selected. This system contains integrated software and more. It also operates from 80 MHz to 6 GHz to satisfy requirements of EN/IEC60601-1-2, EN50130-4, EN61000-6-1-2, EN 55024, and EN 55035.

Ultra-Low Power Wakeup Radios In Medical Implant Communications
By P.D. Bradley and Reghu Rajan, Microsemi Corporation
Implantable medical devices often utilize wireless communication systems. Due to their small size and the requirement to operate off small batteries for long periods of time, these wireless devices have significant power constraints. This paper examines some of the requirements of such wireless implantable medical devices. It also addresses the need for low power wakeup radios to support those devices and provides a comparison of candidate technology.

Spotlight On Medical Design

RF Power Amplifier For Medical EMC Compliance Testing
AR’s 75A250A is an RF power amplifier covering the 10 kHz to 250 MHz frequency range. It’s well suited for medical EMC compliance testing applications and offers up to 75 watts CW power when used with an RF sweep generator.


RF Components For Medical System Diagnostics
This download contains information on HUBER+SUHNER’s RF components for medical system diagnostics. Corrugated cables, fiber optic connectors, hermetically sealed components, nonmagnetic coaxial connectors, and nonmagnetic coaxial cables are included.


Hyperabrupt Junction Tuning Varactors Used In Defibrillators And Heart Monitoring
These junction tuning varactors are ideal for use with defibrillators, low tuning voltage VCOs, and high-volume commercial systems. They’re characterized for capacitance and resistance over temperature.


Tissue-Simulating Liquid For SAR Measurement
The Tissue-Equivalent liquid meets the requirement of dielectric properties standardized by the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB), the FCC, and the IEC for the human head and body. The product can be applied for SAR measurement for a cellular phone, radiation pattern measurement, and the development of receiving and transmitting antenna used nearby a human body.


Coaxial Pulsed Magnetron
The VMX3045 is a high-power, coaxial pulsed magnetron that provides up to 400 kW of peak output power and 400 W of average output power at .001 duty cycle and 3.5 uS pulse width. The VMX3045’s combination of high power and small size makes it ideally suited for mobile linear accelerators.


Board-Level Shielding Catalog
Orbel offers effective board-level shielding, finger-stock gaskets, metalized fabric gaskets, photo-etched precision metal parts, and precision metal stampings used in a broad range of industries including medical, A&D, telecommunications, electronics, automotive, and more.

Improving Medical Diagnosis And Treatment With Bio-EM Simulation
The interaction between the human body and electromagnetic (EM) fields is used by medical devices for both diagnosis and therapeutic purposes. This webinar shows how human body models have evolved to a point where both the EM radiation effects and macroscopic effects, such as heating and specific absorption rate (SAR) distribution, can be predicted with CST simulation software tools.

Featured Webinar

Combined 3D Electromagnetic And Spin Response Simulation Of MRI Systems
The quality of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) depends on both the homogeneity of the underlying RF fields and on the sequence chosen to create the image. In this webinar we will present a co-simulation of CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (CST MWS) for the coil design and the Jülich Extensible MRI Simulator (JEMRIS) to show these joint effects.
