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.

The American motorcycle is enjoying a mini-renaissance today, as the recent success of bike manufacturers Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle, and Victory Motorcycles, among others, amply indicate.
The question of whether engineers could have foreseen the shortcut maintenance procedures that led to the crash of American Airlines Flight 191 in 1979 will probably linger for as long as there is an engineering profession.
More than 35 years later, the post-mortem on one of the country’s worst engineering disasters appears to be simple. A contractor asked for a change in an original design. The change was approved by engineers, later resulting in a mammoth structural collapse that killed 114 people and injured 216 more.
If you’re an embedded systems engineer whose analog capabilities are getting a little bit rusty, then you’ll want to take note of an upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Analog Design for the Digital World,” running Monday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 21.
It’s time once again for the Annual Design News Science and Engineering Movie Contest, which names no winners, awards no prizes, isn’t really a contest, and appears every three years or so.
