For healthcare drug delivery devices, like infusion pumps or insulin pumps, exact dosing is crucial. Thus, measurements of real drug delivery amounts plus exact control of dosing motors are required. Motors are typically three-phase BLDC types with a few watts (e.g. using 12V). For flow sensing, a factory-calibrated sensor or custom sensors may be used. Bluetooth® communication may also be needed to provide an up-to-date GUI via smartphone and additional interfaces, like Ethernet or a (medical-grade) isolated USB. Some end products may also require an uninterrupted power supply (e.g. using Li-ion cells).
Software following the ISO12207 standard can dramatically reduce time-to-market and development costs. Renesas provides this through its Synergy Software Package.
