Medical Electronics Symposium 2018
SMTA, INEMI, and MEPTEC have joined forces to again host this international conference, focusing on advances in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing, specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications. Last year's conference attracted about 200 attendees and more than 30 exhibitors. Prior to last year, MEPTEC's and SMTA's conferences were held in Phoenix, Arizona and Milpitas, CA, respectively, drawing technology experts, entrepreneurs and service providers that work in this niche technology space. Typical applications within this space involve implantable defibrillators, neurostimulators and drug delivery, interventional catheters, pillcams, ultrasound transducers, hearing aids, biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications, as well as future diagnostic and treatment solutions that may use stretchable electronics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) or nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).
