PCB Design: In Medical PCB Design, Innovation Never Stops – Kenneth MacCallum

Kenneth MacCallum


The December 31, 2018 online edition of PCB Design features an interview with StarFish Medical Principle Electronic Engineer, Kenneth MacCallum. The interview is a followup to a 2015 interview written by Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine. Kenneth provides an update on trends he sees in medical electronics, and some of the challenges in adapting the latest technology to this segment of the industry.

“Notwithstanding the trends, the fundamental focus on device safety and efficacy has not changed. If anything, this primary goal of medical device design has strengthened. No matter how cool and progressive technology gets, if we can’t ensure that we can control the safety of the patient and operator—or if we cannot demonstrate that the intended use is implemented in a reliably effective manner—then we have not succeeded.” – Kenneth MacCallum
