Study on Medical Sensors

The advances in electronics allowed the development of smart miniature devices called medical sensors, that can collect physiological data from the human body and its surrounding and send it wirelessly to healthcare providers in order to help avoiding life threatening events. This article presents a general overview on the types of medical sensors, their properties, and the wireless technologies used to convey collected data. Also, this article is the first to provide a summary about the wearable sensors' brands available in the market, along with their interface and connection types.

AOI MACHINE QUERY -- Hello I am looking for positive and negative feedback on this VISCOM S3088 BASIC AOI machine. If anyone has had the opportunity to work with this machine in the field of visual inspection of electronic boards, to ensure proper SMT assembly, and knows if it is a good machine, I would appreciate it. Easy to program? Complies with visual inspections, smt errors? easy to repair damage? Are spare parts expensive and easy to get? Thank you very much, I look forward to your comments.

Drying PCB after contamination measurement for rework ? -- I am currently working on a manufacturing flow where some PCBA are processed with reflow oven (after being baked before processing), then cleaned with bath, then passed into contaminometer, passed into AOI. The point is after all of this, if AOI detect some reworking is needed should I bake again the PCBA before using solder iron to correct this PCBA in order to avoid moisture development (considering it passed trough bath and contaminometer device)?
