As more medical devices incorporate flat flexible cables (FFC), polymer thick film circuits (PTF), and flexible printed circuits (FPC), what can engineers do from an interference perspective?

Glen Griffith, Principal RF Communication Engineer, Alfred Mann Foundation, talks to Andrea Charles from Pharma IQ, about the proliferation of electronic signals in clinical settings and new innovations surrounding shielding materials. Griffith also discusses how the evolution of RF technologies is impacting on his role.
