Abstract

The goal of this project is to design an ultra-low power and ultra-portable wireless biomedical signal chain. This project provides an adaptable electrocardiogram (ECG) reference design that can be modified to accept other bio-potential signals. The designed ECG monitoring system utilizes the AD8232 from Analog Devices featuring low noise and adaptable filtering as well as the nRF51422 for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signal transmission. The resulting design addresses the lack of commercial products that can transmit a conditioned signal over-the-air by providing an adaptable reference design that others can utilize to expedite research and development.
