Würth Elektronik, a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components, and Valens Semiconductor, a provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the audio-video and automotive markets, announced that they have introduced to market a joint solution to enable medical image diagnosis and procedures with unprecedented video resolution. The offering encompasses secure, uncompressed high-bandwidth video connectivity and advances camera imaging.
The joint reference design is currently under evaluation by medical imaging device manufacturers.
Medical imaging devices, such as MRIs, CTs, robotic surgery and endoscopy solutions, require high-bandwidth uncompressed video connectivity. Würth Elektronik and Valens Semiconductor have developed a solution that enables uncompressed 4K60@4:4:4 video transmission over copper cable while complying with the strict medical isolation specifications.
Core components of the reference design (EVS3-EVK2-KT-3000-MD) are the Valens Stello VS3000 chipset, compliant with the latest generation of the HDBaseT standard Spec 3.0, and the WE-LAN HDBaseT transformer from Würth Elektronik (749054010). This ensures galvanic isolation and compliance with the IEC 60601 standard for safe electrical equipment in the medical environment.
