If such e-patches are developed for heart patients to monitor and control their heartbeats then it will be great boon for millions who are susceptible to heart trouble.

There are a myriad of transcutaneous drug delivery techniques and systems already out there including a nifty silicon device with micro "needles". Unless this device has a compelling advantage, it seems a better vehicle for fleecing investors.

This interesting article raises several questions. 1/ The photograph makes the patch appear to be about 7 inches long. Is it really that big? 2/ The article mentions that consumers would expect to pay less than $10 and that reimbursement agencies expect to pay between $35 and $83. Should the article have said that reimbursement agencies see this technology replacing injections which currently cost $35 and $83? 3/ Migraines have historically been difficult to treat with drugs. How effective is this system compared with current treatments? Is this patch simply a superior delivery system for the same drug as current patch technologies?

Very innovative technology and the market is there. The FDA is doing well by actually being prepared for most of these technologies.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
