Systems-On-A-Chip Miniaturization Spurs New IT Business Opportunities!

Systems on chips are driving new applications into existence like telemetry, remote reading of bio-info and mini pharmaceutical labs. This allows biological measurements to be taken at remote locations like Indy race cars and space vehicles. Telemetry thus becomes a real time data collection system that can be analyzed Immediately. This alone contributes to an increase of information technology business opportunities.

The trend toward the miniaturization of sensor systems will have a significant effect on how the environment is studied and monitored. “Systems on a chip” technology, for example, may replace chemistry and biology laboratories with portable hand-size instruments used for rapid chemical or biological agent detection and quantification in a myriad of situations.  All of these new applications open wide vistas of innovative business possibilities.

Clinical Monitoring Becomes More Accurate And Timely Because Of Sensor Driven Telemetry.

It is anticipated that innovative and improved biochemical sensors would be useful in a variety of situations including, but not limited to: clinical monitoring, forensics and human or animal research. Specific sensor characteristics would complement their intended use. This applies to characteristics such as: sampling frequency, degree of accuracy, data storage capacity and data transmission frequency.

Rapid Interpretations Saves Lives.

Depending on their intended purpose and use, biochemical sensors may be augmented with additional information such as other physiological measurements or geospatial determinations. Emergency response planners require current and accurate geospatial information that is readily available in inter-operable databases. Advances in telemetry technology contribute greatly to the success of moving masses of data from raw sensor readings to useful database applications.

WiFi Transforms Telemetry Systems Into More Comfortable Situations.

Devices need to be compatible with human comfort, and devices to be worn for weeks or months may present particular challenges. Since biochemical readings are likely to be baseline most of the times, sensing devices generally require ways to monitor contact and readiness to record. More over, where necessary, measurement fidelity should be robust to subject's activities. The mode of data storage will need to conform to power limitations and strategies for data transmission which will require telemetry applications mentioned earlier.

Advancements And Transformations Into Telemetry Concepts Continues To Improve Data Analysis.

In addition to biochemical monitoring and data transmission the opportunity to develop appropriate data analysis systems looms even bigger in future design considerations. Examples include: estimating blood biochemical concentrations, reconstructing patterns of biochemical consumption, and monitoring large numbers of devices to identify significant, but infrequent, events while minimizing false positives.


As this writing shows the importance that telemetry evolutions have contributed heavely to human health matters it is important to remember that new software and sensor devices continue to change the nature of the field. But the original concepts discovered by telemetry research and development have made everything going on today a reality of success. This success translates into the need for more business-content skilled professionals along with systems programming specialists.
