Centro de Construcción de Cardioestimuladores
Overview On February 3, 1960, Prof. Orestes Fiandra performed the first effective pacemaker implant in the world. CCC was founded in 1970 dedicated to the development and manufacture of pacemakers We have 30 years of experience in the medical devices field and we are expanding activities to other engineering areas.
A brief history 70’s: Design and manufacture of pacemakers for the domestic market 80’s: Assembly of kits supplied by Exonix 90-94: Development of APEX series 95: Starting international business 97: Starting engineering and OEM business 02: Offices in Europe (i2m)
Today Some years of experience in the global market Two divisions: Pacemakers Engineering
Engineering Division We aim at the development of specific projects through direct agreements with customers, or by participating in agreements with other solution supplier companies. We have developed a substantial set of framework solutions and thoroughly tested modules; so, we can offer short lead times with uncompromising quality. We can offer rapid development of prototypes and new products together with high quality standards and low cost Our work is not limited to the medical devices field
Electronics Design, prototyping and circuit manufacture according to applicable international medical quality standards. Design and manufacture of monitoring devices. Design and manufacture of micro-power implantable circuits. Design of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs).
Firmware Development of embedded systems software, including real-time systems, signal processing, and communications. Development of complex systems involving real-time parallel processing. Development of microcontroller-based ultra-low power consumption solutions.
High-level Software Development of high-level software, including Graphical User Interfaces and software for the command of embedded systems. Development of special-purpose languages aimed at simplifying maintenance and operation tasks. Development of communications software, used with devices designed by CCC or by third parties Remote operation through the Internet. Integration of Data Base services.
Leads and Encapsulation Design and Manufacture of special purpose, chronically-implantable leads. Medical-grade encapsulations including titanium and epoxy enclosures. Mechanical solutions for medical devices Medical-grade packaging, including blister packs and ETO sterilization.
Project Leadership & Consulting Project management and leadership of mission- critical projects, integrating our capacity and engineering capabilities with the customer’s resources. Wide experience in international multi-center projects. Feasibility studies in areas such as micro-power electronics, real time software development. Consulting services in Software Engineering and SQA.
