To meet the unprecedented demand for patient monitors during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic—at least five times higher than the norm—Xilinx’ customer Philips has dramatically stepped up its production. Philips, in turn, tapped Xilinx to swiftly produce and deliver FPGAs to power vital patient monitoring equipment.

Monitors for intensive care beds

Xilinx supplied Artix-7 FPGAs and hands-on support to enable Philips to produce more IntelliVue Monitors, including portable, specialized, and compact versions. These monitors are an especially critical component in the battle against the coronavirus, as every intensive care (IC) bed requires a monitor so clear information can be delivered to healthcare professionals treating patients. Artix-7 FPGAs are ideally suited to for the IntelliVue Monitors, meeting the size, weight, low power and low-cost requirements for Philips, as well as other companies in the medical industry.
