Original Press Release:
Custom Interventional Catheter Assemblies Offer Fine Wire Terminations to 0.175 mm
Scottsdale, AZ — High Speed Interconnects (“HSI”), a full service extruder and assembler of high performance coaxial cable has recently announced the capability to create custom, micro-miniature interventional catheter assemblies with fine wire, direct-to-board terminations down to 0.175 mm pitch.
This enhanced capability provides medical device companies seeking less invasive and more stable solutions the opportunity to further reduce the size of their catheterization products. With appreciation for the complexities of thin wall thicknesses and tube diameters, HSI has developed proprietary extrusion and termination capabilities to produce disposable and reusable interventional catheter assemblies, which are of the highest standards for patient care.
HSI’s custom interventional catheter capabilities also include performance-related control over their proprietary VP90™ ePTFE dielectric, and micro-coaxial cable extrusion up to 52AWG. From conceptual New Product Introduction (NPI) design and first article qualification through production, HSI adopts Design For Manufacturing & Assembly (DFMA) practices which yields typical lead times of less than one week and allows for small batch runs.
HSI adheres to FDA compliant GMP practices and is capable of extruding and terminating a wide variety of catheter-based delivery systems. HSI's certifications include AS9100 revision C, ISO9001, EN13485 (pending), IPC 610/620, ITAR Registration. HSI is factory-certified in North America to properly terminate to Hirose, IPEX, and JAE micro-coaxial connectors.
