In a nod to the fast-growing medical electronics market, distributor Mouser Electronics recently launched an expanded Medical Applications Product Knowledge Center (PKC) training site, focused on providing insight into the latest in personal fitness, wellness and medical applications.

The expanded site adds personal fitness and wellness to the mix, highlighting devices such as telehealth systems, personal activity monitors, heart rate monitors, electronic weight scales, in addition to blood pressure monitors, CPAP machines, digital stethoscopes, digital thermometers, hearing aids, infusion pumps and pulse oximeters. The PKC training site features block diagram navigation so that design engineers can get an overview of each device and select solutions from component manufacturers.

“Mouser has made a huge push to make its Product Knowledge Center training site the go-to, quick training source for design engineers with application-specific questions,” says Kevin Hess, Mouser’s vice president of technical marketing. “With the medical applications PKC’s wealth of information on top-end products such as telehealth systems and personal activity monitors, we’re continuing to expand the huge range of relevant, up-to-date information that design engineers can quickly find through Mouser’s industry-leading website.”
