Lattice Semiconductor and NDS Surgical Imaging have collaborated to deliver wireless HD video capabilities for medical device applications.
NDS will uses Lattice’s 60 GHz WirelessHD technology to deliver HD video for medical devices.
Leveraging Lattice’s SiBEAM mmWave technology, NDS builds upon its ZeroWire ecosystem technology, providing a second-generation platform and WirelessHD video link solution.
The solution can be used in endoscopic minimally invasive procedures including Endo/GI and laparoscopic surgery.
The partnership will strengthen NDS’s market position to deliver a real time wireless 1080p resolution video to solution medical original equipment manufacturers globally. The two companies are working on the development of 4K ultra high-definition (UHD) wireless solution.
A 60GHz wireless connectivity can reduce the total cost of ownership to healthcare facilities by helping reduce installation, maintenance and cleaning costs of cables in a procedure room.
By fitting operating rooms with ZeroWire WirelessHD connectivity – real time HD video without noticeable delay can become reality, thus, eliminating the need for any wires.
Eliminating wires from a procedure room also reduces the chances of tripping and mishaps and improves the overall efficiency.
Lattice Semiconductor industrial and automotive business vice president and general manager Brian White said: “Using our SiBEAM mmWave technology, the NDS ZeroWire solution enables the wireless transmission of HD video in the operating room, offering key advantages to healthcare professionals.
“We have chosen specifically to partner with NDS to support medical manufacturers interested in leveraging 60 GHz connectivity because of their proven expertise in medical imaging systems and regulatory compliance requirements.
“We believe our partnership will help accelerate adoption of WirelessHD connectivity in medical device applications resulting in greater cost savings and interoperability.”
NDS president and general manager Karim Khadr said: “As the healthcare industry drives to further streamline expenses, improve patient care and reduce hazards in the healthcare facilities, we looked for a wireless video link technology that would help address these needs while striving to differentiate our solution.
“We are proud to partner with Lattice, as the use of their WirelessHD technology within our ZeroWire ecosystem solution inside the operating room environment provides medical staff the utmost quality, reliability and mobility at a place and time that is most critical.”
