Patient compliance is the single biggest reason for medical therapy failure. Medical device designers are constantly working to make devices smaller, more discreet, and easier to use. To achieve those goals, they must reduce the power consumption of their products. Better energy efficiency leads to smaller and longer-lasting batteries, ultimately making medical devices more portable. 

During this session, attendees will learn about Freescale's low-power design methodology and the Kinetis L series of microcontrollers. Freescale systems expert Eduardo Montanez will detail both hardware and software techniques to lower the power of medical designs. 

This webcast will feature presentations by Eduardo Montanez, Systems Engineer, Freescale, and David Niewolny, Healthcare Business Development Manager, Freescale. The webcast concludes with a live Q&A session moderated by Jamie Hartford, Associate Editor of MD+DI, UBM Canon's leading brand providing the medical device industry with the latest news, information, and in-depth analysis.

"Healthcare providers and patients are demanding more mobile medical devices, and the industry needs to respond with products that address their needs. This Webcast will teach designers energy-saving techniques that will enable them to keep pushing the envelope on the portability of their designs." said Hartford
