Sorry for the late word, but we have two events next week that should be of interest to the medical-electronics design community, as well as non-medical designers.
•The first is “Don’t Let Your IP get Ripped-Off in China”, click here. In this seminar, you will learn the types of IP protection that the Chinese system has to offer as well as cost effective approaches that non-Chinese entities can employ to reduce the likelihood of unauthorized exploitation of their technologies in China. In addition, you will learn how to control infringing activities through enforcement actions as well as realistic expectations for enforcement outcomes in China. [Note: this is not free, but the cost is modest, IMO.}
This pay-per-view webcast will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 1 P.M. Central Time and 2 P.M. Eastern Time ; cost is $249 per person.
•The second is “The medical electronics balancing act: Lower costs with greater innovation”, click here. The event will discuss the challenges hardware and software engineers face designing next-generation medical devices. This includes market and design trends and the factors that will help you accelerate the design process and ensure regulatory compliance across a range of devices from portable wireless consumer products to clinical equipment.
One area of focus will be wireless. As medical devices go mobile, there are issues of spectrum of technology options available to engineers, from RFID to Zigbee to Bluetooth to 802.11 to WBU, and discuss where and why each has its place in the medical device market. The free event is scheduled for December 7, 2011 at 1 pm EDT.
So, take a break, sign up for one or both, and you'll hopefully get some useful information and insight. ?
