Mountain View, Calif. — Demonstrating the success of its low-power and power-efficient programmable technologies, Actel
Corporation today announced that Mindray Medical International Limited, China's leading developer and manufacturer of medical devices, has chosen Actel's flash-based ProASIC3 FPGAs for implementation in its portable patient monitoring systems. Selected for the low-power, enhanced security, performance, and firm-error immunity it
offers, the 60,000-gate ProASIC3 A3P060 is being deployed to provide the highest possible levels of secure patient data management.
Following the successful deployment of Actel's ProASIC3, Mindray plans to continue to leverage Actel flash-based FPGAs in next-generation products, including other patient monitoring devices, diagnostic laboratory instruments and ultrasound imaging systems. Actel expects that IGLOO, its
award-winning, low-power, flash-based FPGA, will be implemented in Mindray's next product release. Mindray also plans to incorporate Actel's ARM processor-enabled, flash-based FPGAs into their medical devices.
Mindray's comprehensive portfolio of patient monitoring systems ranges in security complexity from those that contain three to four security modules to those that contain 12. Each module is designed to monitor and control the security of one element of a patient's data, such as heart rate and blood pressure etc.
