Frost & Sullivan to Hold Briefing on Semiconductors for Medical Imaging

The Semiconductors Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2007 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on the utilization of semiconductors in the medical imaging equipment market to be held on Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 10:00 am CDT / 11:00 am EDT.

Semiconductor vendors strive to integrate more silicon to meet medical imaging equipment manufacturers’ requirements of low power consumption and high performance computing. Sales of medical imaging equipment is estimated to grow due to increasing healthcare expenditures and developments in technology for early diagnosis thereby increasing semiconductor sales in this market.

This briefing will benefit field programmable gate array (FPGA), digital signal processor (DSP), application specific integrated circuits (ASIC), data converters and amplifier manufacturers, distributors as well as medical imaging equipment manufacturers.

Highlights of the briefing include: market drivers, restraints and challenges of semiconductor components used in medical imaging, analysis of imaging equipment shipments, imaging equipment requirements, and revenue as well as unit shipment estimates for semiconductors in the medical imaging industry.

“FPGA, DSP and data converter semiconductor vendors are targeting the medical imaging industry by integrating multiple channels, increasing the capabilities of programmable logic with a huge number of logic cells and multiple DSP block capabilities,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Gowtham Kumar. “Driven by innovation and increasing healthcare expenditures, the increasing imaging equipment sales will have a dramatic impact on semiconductor component sales.”
