Medical and Telemetry Devices

Medical & Telemetry Device : In another project Mike helped a medical appliance firm bring a mobile heart monitoring system to market. The project required integration of an embedded RTOS, a 900Mhz transceiver running proprietary sensor link protocols, an AMPS/CDMA cell phone chip set, and a GPS receiver chipset. All of this was squeezed into a package not much larger than a Palm size PDA.
The approach used was to provide hands-on support to port the RTOS to the new hardware, to write the device drivers, and to provide integration support for the hardware engineers and the application software developers. Having a solid background in telemetry, link protocls, TCP/IP protocols and Cellular networks was very useful.
