The latest developments in the X-ray medical imaging help improve diagnostic capabilities while reducing costs. X-ray generators need to keep up with the challenges imposed by new semiconductor and software technologies. Time and complexity of a “full-digital” X-ray generator development are significantly reduced by using HIL instead of a complex setup of X-ray tubes, high voltage sources, power loads and banks of various instruments, leading to faster development and innovation in the field.
