Researchers from IMEC Discuss Findings in Biomedicine and Biomedical Engineering (A Configurable and Low-Power Mixed Signal SoC for Portable ECG Monitoring Applications)
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from IMEC, "This can be used to evaluate the quality of the ECG measurement and to filter motion artifacts. A custom digital signal processor consisting of 4-way SIMD processor provides the configurability and advanced functionality like motion artifact removal and R peak detection. A built-in 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is capable of adaptive sampling achieving a compression ratio of up to 7, and loop buffer integration reduces the power consumption for on-chip memory access. The SoC is implemented in 0.18 mu m CMOS process and consumes 32 mu W from a 1.2 V while heart beat detection application is running, and integrated in a wireless ECG monitoring system with Bluetooth protocol."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Thanks to the ECG SoC, the overall system power consumption can be reduced significantly."
