We appreciate your interest in using the design specifications for the Medtronic PB560 ventilator system to help address the shortage of ventilators due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite manufacturers, engineers, and other innovators to use these files as inspiration for their own innovations.
A link to the files can be found below.
To aid in the manufacturing evaluation, we first prioritized sharing the hardware design specifications and manufacturing instructions, which were shared on March 30. Next, on March 31, we posted additional ventilator design documents, including manufacturing fixtures, printed circuit board drawings, multiple bills of materials (BOMs), and 3D CAD files. On April 1, we posted software source code files. A final packages of documents with additional BOMs and other information was posted on April 3. We have also completed the upload of design, software, and technical files.
Please note: To date, there have been more than 90,000 registrations for design specifications since we publicly shared them — and we are very pleased with the global response to support the world's need for more ventilators. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond individually to technical questions that you may have, given the time limitations and the increased demands on our team as we ramp up Medtronic ventilator production. To support you, we have created a Self-Service FAQ to answer the most commonly asked questions.
