eInfochips, a leading product design company, today launched the Andromeda Reference Platform for medical imaging and telemedicine designers. The Andromeda video processing system is an app-ready development platform for medical imaging systems including endoscopy, angiography, mammography, arthroscopy and ultrasound. For telemedicine engineers, Andromeda also is a wireless-ready platform for applications that connect doctors, patients and families together on a network. For both medical imaging and telemedicine design teams, Andromeda accelerates prototype development while reducing costs.
According to Frank Berry, founder and senior analyst at IT Brand Pulse, "Medical imaging companies are focused on out-innovating each other. Reference platforms like Andromeda allow design teams to maintain that focus, and to get innovative products to market faster."
Parag Mehta, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer at eInfochips, added: "Andromeda is designed to streamline manufacturing complexity as well. The same System-on-Module used in the development platform is designed for high-volume production."
The Andromeda Reference Platform
Reference Platforms from eInfochips include the system hardware and software design teams need for fast time-to-application development. The Andromeda Reference Platform is a wireless-ready video processing system, loaded with a Linux operating system, sample applications and documentation. The video processing system includes a carrier card, a video I/O module, a touch-screen display and an ultra-small form-factor system-on-module. The system-on-module is available with two versions of ARM Cortex A8-based Texas Instruments Digital Signal Processors: 1) the TMS320DM8148 with SGX530 Graphics Acceleration, and 2) the TMS320DM8168 with HD Video Acceleration.
