Mouser has released a new eBook in collaboration with Molex, examining the latest solutions and applications at the intersection of connectivity and medical device design. In 'Improving Lives with Digital Healthcare', leading experts from the companies offer in-depth articles exploring the next generation of digital healthcare solutions, comprising robotic surgery, brain-computer interfaces, medical wearables, and medical training with immersive technologies.

Today's medical devices bring together a wide range of sensors, connectivity solutions, and cable assemblies to provide key advances in diagnostic, monitoring, and therapeutic treatments. The new eBook, assists to untangle the complexities of digital healthcare, providing usable resources for designing new devices. It features an article on emerging connectivity solutions for robotic surgery, including the usage of optical fibre technology to support laser therapy. It also examines the expanding field of brain-computer interface applications, in which AI and sensor hubs could one day lead to 'superhuman' cognition.

The eBook features product information for 15 Molex devices, connecting readers directly to the tools required for next-generation medical applications. The Molex ISM standalone antennas offer an antenna volume reduction of up to 75% compared with conventional designs and dual-band operation at 868MHz and 915MHz. The compact antennas can be readily integrated into telehealth devices, microwave ablation machines, diathermy therapeutic devices, and more. The 0.25mm-pitch Premo-Flex jumpers provide durable, ultra-flexible solutions for PCB connections in patient monitoring, telehealth, and surgical equipment. The compact jumpers feature a maximum current of 0.2A and are excellent for tight packaging applications.
