The ADS1x9xECG FE is a demonstration kit for the ADS1292R, a two channel, simultaneous sampling, 24-bit, delta-sigma (ΔΣ) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a built-in programmable gain amplifier (PGA), internal reference, and respiration measurement. The ADS1292R chip incorporates all of the features that are commonly required in medical electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG) and electroencephalogram (EEG) and respiratory monitoring applications. The ADS1x9xECG FE is equipped with a MSP430F5529 micro-controller giving the user all the circuitry needed to run the ADC. The board can be used with a variety of patient simulators and allows the user to take advantage of the flexible input multiplexer which can be independently connected to the internally-generated signals for test, temperature, and lead-off detection. Software is available from Texas Instruments to allow the evaluation platform to run with a PC user interface.
