I also forgot to mention wearable electronics is becoming a key element to the Healthcare industry. Healthcare manufacturers are  packaging medical electronics into a variety of small devices ranging from smartphones to contact lenses. Definitely a plus in stimulating the economy and assisting in good health monitoring techniques.

I agree. The Healthcare industry has definitely blossom into a billion dollar plus industry. A lot of semiconductor manufacturers have geared up their production lines to churn out microcontrollers, digital, analog components to meet the demand from OEMs, vendors, and healthcare entrepreneurs needed devices for their medical products. Below is link to Analog Devices webpage devoted to their semiconductor product line along with application notes.

Charles, I certainly looking forward to meeting you at the "Learning Lab" during the show.  I'm one of those old guys, but if I had to do it over again, I think I would major in some form of engineering that encompass the design of medical devices.  I have had two opportunities to do work on TENS units and they are fascinating. Excellent post and I look forward to our meeting.

Yes, this is a good development.  Medical electronics will only grow over the next few years and are very important to our economy and health.  Wish I could be there.

Thanks for sharing Charles. This is a great opportunity for people eager to learn about medical electronics. They would be able to gain practical know-how about the recent trends in this industry. The biggest advantage is that a lot of different streams are discussed under one roof, so people can get practically educated in different areas without much hustle.
