From printed circuit boards to miniaturized, implantable 3D-MID circuits
The origin of the development of complex electronic circuits was the invention of two-dimensional printed circuit boards and their assembly with THT components. In order to save space and reduce assembly times and thus costs, SMD technology was subsequently developed. In the meantime, we have taken another step forward and use plastic housings or carrier parts to apply conductive tracks and integrate electronic functions.

From flat PCBs to miniature implantable 3D-Circuits
The most remarkable aspect of technology is its constant development and improvement. Slimmer laptops, smaller phones, and medical devices designed to be unobtrusive and barely visible to the naked eye. Can I use 3D-Circuits to outperform the flat PCBs?
3D-MID – minimized sensing high-tech within the patient
What would our world look like in 1D or 2D? Well, 3D is our natural human visual reality and it is impossible to imagine life without it. In recent years, 3D has also become more and more a reality in modern high tech. How do designers and engineers in medical device technology use this new design freedom of three-dimensionality?

Component carriers simplify the mounting of sensors
HARTING has developed a component carrier that can be mounted directly with electronic components allowing previous manual assembly processes to be automated. Flexible circuit boards can also be replaced, increasing precision and reducing assembly costs.

The highest level of physical protection for POS terminals –...
Point-of-sale terminals (POS) are not sufficiently protected against physical attacks. Attackers can access sensitive data (such as credit card number and PIN codes) using probes or mini-drills. An additional security element in the security caps of the terminals can reliably prevent such attacks.
