ScoutCam Receives U.S. Patent Allowance for PCBs in Camera Technology


Reading time ( words)

Medigus Ltd. a technology company engaged in advanced medical solutions and innovative internet technologies,  announced it was informed that ScoutCam Inc. Medigus’ affiliate company and a leading developer and manufacturer of customized micro visual solutions and supplementary technologies, received a patent notice of allowance by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, covering, among other things, ScoutCam’s innovative design of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), which is included in the camera head. This technology covered by the notice would enable ScoutCam to design and manufacture smaller scale cameras than its competitors per given sensor. 

ScoutCam used this technology for the design of its second-generation camera for NASA, which was used in-orbit during its third Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM3) on October 19th-22nd, 2020.

The unique technology enabled the Company to be selected at the United States Government's international tender bid for the design and production of this camera. In addition to its miniature size, the versatile micro ScoutCam 8.0 HD camera features state of the art customizable optics and noteworthy image quality.

Furthermore, the ability to down scale the camera's diameter carries distinct benefits in the medical device context, in which minimizing an object upon entry into the body - in this case the camera - provides a vital advantage. ScoutCam intends to use this technology to further develop and sell cameras to medical device manufacturers, especially for disposable endoscopes – a market that conducts approximately 75 million endoscopies each year in the U.S. alone – as well as for minimally invasive surgical endoscopic procedures that afford even higher margins.

“As we are engaged in designing and manufacturing innovative novel products, a strong IP portfolio is essential. This notice of allowance for the patent further strengthens our broad IP portfolio. We see this approval as another testimony to our innovation as well as the acceptance we witness by industry leaders, such as NASA and others," said Yaron Silberman, PhD MBA, Chief Executive Officer of ScoutCam.

It’s always good to catch up with old friends, especially when you can start working together. I recently spoke with my friend John Johnson, who has joined American Standard Circuits as the director of business development. At ASC, John will be using the Averatek A-SAP process that he was previously involved with. He shares some of his background and provides insight on the best ways to use this semi-additive PCB fabrication process that opens the capability window for forming trace and space.

EIPC Summer Conference 2022: Day 1 Review

06/28/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
At last, a live EIPC conference and this time in the Swedish city of Örebro, “where history and contemporary culture converge,” a pleasant and convenient location for an event that included a privileged visit to the Ericsson facility in Kumla. Around 100 delegates made the journey and the Örebro Scandic Grand Hotel was an excellent conference venue for the June 14-15 conference.

PCB Plating Still Comes Down to Physics

06/21/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We asked columnist Michael Carano to discuss the latest innovations in plating equipment and chemicals, as well as some of the drivers in this segment, and the biggest challenges and opportunities he sees in plating today. As Michael points out, despite all of the technological advances in this industry, process engineers still need a solid understanding of Faraday’s Law and Ohm’s Law to successfully plate PCBs.
