Medical and biotech devices often include optical, chemical, RF and liquid elements. Some are combined with electronic devices to increase functionality or interaction with the environment. To produce these devices, multiple technologies are combined in a cost-effective way, ideally using a rapid process development cycle to minimize time to market. Combining technologies, as well as combining components with electronics, requires improved design methods and software, involves more material properties, longer supply chains and a sophisticated manufacturing process known as heterogeneous assembly.
