Memory storage aids AI in medical technology
Memories for IoT applications from Innodisk can be used in artificial intelligence (AI) for medical applications, says the company.
AI is revolutionising medical technology, says Innodisk, in diagnostics, patient care, and emergency rooms. AI works through enormous data sets to support medical staff but the technology requires sufficient computational powers.
Innodisk offers a portfolio of industrial-grade DRAM modules that have guaranteed long-term supply. It includes DDR4, DDR3 and DDR2 modules available in the same robust form factors. For extreme cases, conformal coating and anti-sulfuration measures are available to further protect the memory module.
For the design of many medical systems, it is necessary to factor in electromagnetic interference (EMI). A special circuit design with purpose-built firmware algorithms is necessary and Innodisk has customised modules with anti-magnetic properties as well as with rigid data security measures for such medical devices. Innodisk can provide solid state drives (SSDs) that offer extensive endurance and the robustness required of IoT devices in a medical setting.
One of the challenges of IoT is monitoring the many devices involved in the system. In one such case, Innodisk modified the cloud-based management tool iCAP to not only monitor the onboard component lifespan and status, but also that of the batteries in the various portable devices used at the hospital. This way, all devices are kept under one umbrella that is easily accessed through any computer, phone or tablet with a compatible browser.
Adding devices means additional ways of communication between those devices. Innodisk’s expansion cards allow medical devices to easily add new ports that offer additional LAN, display, PoE, USB capabilities.
