MEDICAL DEVICE - CARDIAC TEST SYSTEM

Customer Need

A medical device company that produces left ventricular assist devices needed a way to simulate certain failures within the device to ensure proper functionality if and when they may occur.

Solution

CSC created a test platform using National Insrument’s LavVIEW and TestStand that was able to simulate certain power failure and wire disconnection that ensured the device was able to operate properly.

System Components

  • Industrial PC
  • National Instruments DAQ
  • Battery Pack Simulator
  • Custom Software with National Instrument's LabVIEW and TestStand

Success

This project was a major accomplishment as it allowed the company to test every device prior to shipping and FDA standards. A second platform was ordered as the company grew and revised the product. Both projects were completed on time and on budget.
