Industrial Motherboards for Robotic Surgery Simulator Systems
The customer was a design and manufacturing company of robotic surgery simulator systems. Robotic surgery simulators are for surgeons and surgical teams who wish to engage in training with system skills exercises and 3D videos to align training pathways to specific surgical specialties. The company owned the system design/IP and their systems were cleared by the FDA for general laparoscopic surgery.
The Challenge / Objectives
The company was sourcing an industrial motherboard for their next generation robotic surgery simulator system. Because the motherboard’s computing power, quality, and reliability directly impacted the overall performance of the system, the board requirements and selection process were extremely stringent.
