RS Components dedicates microsite to ventilator makers
Building and supplying ventilators is crucial in the fight against COVID-19. RS Components has created a dedicated Ventilator Solutions landing page to give makers, manufacturers and engineers faster access to optimised designs.
Because ventilators are highly complex electromechanical devices, designed by experts in their field using the most optimal components, RS has collated four supplier solutions from Maxim Integrated, Microchip Technology, STMicroelectronics and Renesas.
"RS is uniquely capable of supplying the vast majority of components needed to realise a ventilator solution," commented Lynn Ma (pictured), Supplier Manager at RS. "By providing easier access to these supplier solutions and the components that enable them, we hope we are able to better support the global efforts to combat COVID-19."
While the pandemic continues to put pressure on medical institutions the need for ventilators will continue.
Until that threat passes, RS will support the engineering community worldwide, in whatever way it can.
Other open source designs for medical devices are available via RS, including pulse oximeter solutions from Maxim Integrated, Microchip Technology and ON Semiconductor.
