      Safety / regulations
      We are in the progress of conceptualization a design for an implantable medical device which will probably have some class-C software pieces. I am wondering if the PSoC devices fit into this.
      - Are there any Cypress customers who have used a PSoC devices within implantable medical devices?
      - Is the programmable HW classified as software or as HW? E.g. can we take safety measures using the PSoC HW, in other words, does the programmable HW falls outside the software scope?
      - Is their any documentation available that gives some more inside whether or not it is feasible to use a Cypress PSoC devices within a medical implantable device.

          Answering your question,

           

          - Are there any Cypress customers who have used a PSoC device within implantable medical devices?

          Yes, there are several customers using PSoC within implantable medical devices.

           

          - Is the programmable HW classified as software or as HW? E.g. can we take safety measures using the PSoC HW, in other words, does the programmable HW falls outside the software scope?

          The programmable HW is not scope of software but it has to be run by software.


          - Is their any documentation available that gives some more inside whether or not it is feasible to use a Cypress PSoC devices within a medical implantable device.

          We don’t have that kind of documentation right now.
