Fort Worth, Tex., July 27, 2020 –RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, is providing ongoing support for makers, manufacturers and engineers around the world eager to support the fight against COVID-19 through building and supplying ventilators.
Ventilators are highly complex electromechanical devices, requiring specialized design schemes and quality electronic and mechanical components. RS has collated four supplier solutions from Maxim, Microchip, STMicroelectronics and Renesas, along with design resources and made them available through a dedicated Ventilator Solutions digital product hub for engineers or makers looking to build a ventilator.
“While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put pressure on medical institutions the need for ventilators remains. Until that threat passes, RS is committed to supporting the engineering community worldwide, in whatever way we can,” said Cameron Ward, senior vice president of RS Components.
Other open-source designs for medical devices are available via RS, including pulse oximeter solutions from Maxim, Microchip and ON Semiconductor.
