Check out this new blog post that Altia’s own VP of Marketing, Jason Williamson, wrote for Embedded Computing Design.
I was talking to a medical device engineering manager the other day and, though I wasn’t sure why, we just weren’t seeing eye to eye. I was telling him that he really needs to invest more to get the GUI he was describing onto the low-end processor he wanted to use for an infusion product. By invest more, I mean more than he would if he were using a near-PC level piece of hardware. “But I want to spend less. That’s why I’m going with this cheaper part!”
“This was an “a-ha” moment for me. There’s hardware cost, and then there’s project cost.”
