Molex Incorporated is committed to helping medical design engineers meet the growing demand for smaller, more portable devices without sacrificing performance and reliability. The company will showcase a wide range of its advanced products at MD&M West, February 11 – 13, Anaheim, CA, Booth 1746, including customized interconnects, micro-miniature solutions, optical fiber and capillary tubing and electromagnetic interference (EMI) absorption technology.
Joe Macomber, product manager, from Molex subsidiary Polymicro Technologies™ will present in the Tech Theater on Tuesday, February 11 from 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. The discussion, titled “Advantages of Pure Fused Silica Capillary Tubing in Medical Applications,” will focus on the importance of selecting the most appropriate tubing substrate, as well as the advantages of pure synthetic fused silica capillary tubing over other commonly employed tubing substrates.
“When looking to get the best performance out of innovative, new medical devices, more and more design engineers are realizing the importance of the underlying electronic interconnects and associated technologies,” said Anthony Kalaijakis, strategic medical market manager, Molex. “Because we always strive to provide our customers with products that can be easily integrated, Molex solutions are incredibly effective and efficient. And, the earlier in the design process we get involved, the greater the benefit is for customers, the end user and ultimately the patient.”
Among Molex’s portfolios of advanced technologies that enable medical OEMs to deliver cutting edge products to their customers, products on display will be:
The latest addition to the Molex medical portfolio, HOZOX absorption technology utilizes a unique dual-layer design to maximize EMI noise mitigation performance and is especially suited for manufacturers of high-frequency medical equipment. The magnetic layer’s powder composite absorbs lower frequency electromagnetic energy while the conductive layer’s powder and high loss dielectric resin absorbs high frequency electromagnetic energy. The products feature a very thin form factor and come in two different tape formats as well as an A4 sheet format, all of which can be easily die-cut to specific configurations.
Affinity Medical recently introduced the MediSpec™ Silicone Cable Solution. The silicon overmolding is not only durable and flexible, but protects the cable core from harsh environments encountered during use and sterilization. Other products include custom cables for electrophysiology, ECG, dental, Holter and ambulatory monitoring, ventricular assist devices, disposable and reusable catheter cables and invasive blood pressure cables in single channel, multi-channel bifurcated (two-channel) and trifurcated (three-channel). Also shown will be examples of custom bulkhead receptacles and custom device-to-device interface cables.
Temp-Flex is a precision manufacturer of specialty micro-miniature wire, cable, ribbon and continuous coils that use biomedical coating and medical grade base metals, making its products ideal for implantable and minimally invasive applications where extreme conditions and harsh environments are typical. The company can extrude a 0.3 mil (0.0003”) wall of pin hole free biomedical coating over wires finer than a human hair and its capabilities include cut, strip, twist and tin dip and micro-coaxial cable prep.
Products for use in multiple medical applications are available from Polymicro Technologies, a Molex subsidiary and the world’s leading supplier of silica capillary tubing and specialty optical fibers, optical fiber and capillary assemblies, discrete micro components and quartz optical fiber ferrules. Polymicro Technologies is FDA Registered for invasive medical devices as well as being CGMP compliant.
An integrated optical and electrical solution that reduces the number of connectors required in medical equipment and devices.
Combines the versatility of the two-shot molding process and the speed and precision of LDS capabilities helping medical device designers integrate complex electrical and mechanical features into highly compact applications.
Low-profile, custom assemblies offer tactile silicone membrane graphic overlays, copper flex or polyimide circuitry and micro-board components with LEDs embedded under an embossed window for a wider viewing angle, increased visual brightness, decreased light bleed, improved assembly and easier use of curved surfaces.
Molex emphasizes not only making interconnects smaller, but delivering a higher level of performance, reliability and durability. Its microminiature, stacking, board-to-board connectors are ideal for the thinnest hand-held devices and provide OEMs with a range of high-speed options that deliver flexibility to meet the tight packaging needs found in medical applications.
With a focus on design and manufacturing of custom mixed-layout connectors and cable assemblies, FCT Electronics Group helps Molex build on its ability to provide customized solutions to a broader range of customers.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
