A hand-held pocket size device to dispense a metered dose aerosol of solutions and suspensions. This device contains an electronics compartment and a disposable drug canister. The picture  shows the drug canister circuit board and the final seven layer electronics circuit, for the battery powered device. The drug canister board holds medication related data, and differentiates the drug canister for the inhalation controller in the electronics compartment.
