A global healthcare equipment manufacturer that provides a positive patient experience through mammography systems, workstation solutions, and advanced applications.
The company needed to redesign its mammography systems to upgrade for component obsolescence and technology advancements. The in-house design cycle time and costs were high due to limited capacity and the multiple steps involved: complex programmable logic device (CPLD) to field-programmable gate array (FPGA) conversion, electronic platform shift from 5V to 3.3V, and power supply redesign and restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) conversion for the entire system, including cables and mechanical components.
- Schematic design for performance and functionality enhancements
- PCB design with signal integrity analysis and electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC) compliance
- Updates in CAD drawings
- 3D modeling for board design and component engineering
- Manufacturability and testability improvements
Business impact delivered
- Approximately $2.2 million design cost savings and 30% decrease in design cycle time
- Enhanced performance through 45% decrease in EMI/EMC margins
- RoHS-compliant boards with FPGA circuit introduced
