Extending the Human-to-Machine Interface (HMI) using wireless communications is a fast developing field. Important improvements in HMI functionality have been made possible by continuing advancements in Machine-to-Machine interfaces in terms of increased baud rate, low power consumption and reach (distance) of communication.
Electronic medical systems have become substantially more sophisticated and powerful in recent years. As a result, the majority of these systems contain large arrays of power hungry electronic components that require high-performance heat sinks to prevent them from overheating and being damaged or destroyed.
