Wireless Reprogrammable
I am wondering what type circuit will be in the application specific circuitry. When MCU will be reprogrammed through ASIC, memory from cycle redundancy check register might be compared with new value. Some kind of protocol would be used between Implant device and Reprogramming tool. What if reprogramming is continuously failed, what could be done?

Re: Platform Approach in development

It saves management time and resources when developments do not start from scratch. It also mitigates development risks. The challenge is that without having a team approach, people think they may not get credit if they simply build upon others products.

Re: Platform Approach in development
goafrit2: Thank you for your comments.  I think we are in agreement that a platform approach can really expedite development and mitigate risk.  One of the challenges are are often faced with is that once we establish that a custom approach is apprpriate, there is a tendency to customize everything.  In my experience, development teams are served best when they apply a disciplined approach, and only customize what needs to be customized, and otherwise build from established solutions.

Platform Approach in development
>> Designers must also understand that a platform approach is the best way to reduce time, cost, and risk.

That is the best line in this piece. I am a circuit designer making MEMS analog front ends with applications in gyros and XLs across industrial sectors like medical, consumer and other sectors. A platform approach is one I do adopt and I take time to see how they do it in the software industry where it has found a lot of adoption and following. Time to market is a competitive advantage. One way of getting there on time is building with platform approach.

A very good use and application of a mixed-signal ASIC is for the design of medical-related product device Ė specifically, the implanted medical device.
