Heart Monitoring On-the-Go

IME researchers have developed a real-time multifunctional integrated electrocardiogram (ECG) signal processing scheme. The proposed design is implemented on application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) with 0.18 μm CMOS technology. The use of a simple generic signal processing algorithm enables the integration of multiple functions without sacrificing power consumption (29 μW) and compactability (3mm2). These desirable features are highly suitable for wearable ECG applications for long-term cardiac monitoring.
