Quality, reliability and longevity make the Variscite system-on-module the best choice for medical devices

TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Variscite, a leading global system-on-module (SoM) provider, today announced growing traction with medical device companies that need highly reliable hardware and software built for longevity. Variscite has become a leading provider in this space by meeting the stringent requirements and goals of the healthcare industry while overcoming the supply chain challenges that have plagued the industry.

The past two years have seen accelerated developments in the medical device market and increased production of existing products. However, with this growth came several challenges. Demand for medical devices during the pandemic has skyrocketed, but at the same time a global component crisis has erupted and small-scale producing companies have been pushed back into the supply chain priority queue. With the lengthy development and regulatory processes that often characterize medical devices, companies have struggled to keep up with demand. While some companies still felt that designing in-house was the right way for the medical device industry, other companies realized how they could harness the benefits of SoM without compromising quality and reliability.

With an industry sensitive to quality, reliability, and long-term durability, medical device companies need hardware and software that can perform in the field trouble-free for years while meeting certification requirements. from the FDA. Variscite ensures the highest quality standards through in-house manufacturing which allows full control over the production and quality assurance process. Variscite’s entire production process is carried out in its fully ISO 13485, 9001 and 14001 certified facilities, meeting international customer and regulatory requirements for medical use.

Accelerating the efficiency of manufacturing processes and R&D while benefiting from reduced costs can be solved with industry-proven SoMs. Variscite customers can focus on developing their products, leaving hardware and software infrastructure and maintenance to Variscite experts.

The typical long lifecycle of medical devices makes a long-term commitment to hardware and software an essential requirement. Variscite offers 15 years of longevity commitment for its products which can be extended by using SoMs from the company’s Pin2Pin product families.

  • Smart Hospital Nursing Stations

  • PCR test devices

  • Survival devices

  • Patient monitors

  • Optical and otolaryngology equipment

Using Variscite SoM overcomes supply chain challenges, as Variscite takes steps to ensure stable and short delivery times to its customers. These measures include: increasing component inventory levels, expanding in-house manufacturing capabilities by adding production lines, optimizing production, and certifying alternative sources for low-availability components.

“Even before the pandemic, the medical device industry was experiencing a growing demand for products that could diagnose and treat health conditions,” said Ofer Austerlitz, vice president of business development and sales at Variscite. “Variscite SoMs offer manufacturers a way to not only reduce their time to market when launching a new product, but also to ensure its continued and stable production for years to come.
