Imec and Holst Centre, an open-innovation initiative by Imec and TNO (NL), have unveiled its evaluation kits for their proprietary ultra-low power ECG analog front-end chip for ambulatory cardiac monitoring. According to them, the solutions enable device firms to evaluate Imec and Holst Centre's robust ultra-low power technology on their own portable cardiac monitoring solutions.

The ECG analog front-end chip provides ECG monitoring at extremely low energy consumption (20uW per channel at a supply voltage of 1.2V). The chip monitors up to 3-lead ECG signals in compliance with ANSI-AAMI and IEC standards for ECG monitoring. The chip also monitors tissue-contact impedance to provide real-time information on the electrode contact quality and lead-off detection.

ECG AFE evaluation kit

The evaluation kit promises to provide all necessary hardware and software to evaluate the characteristics of the chip, and includes the above ECG front-end chip and an evaluation board to measure the performance of the chip. The kit is fast and easy to set-up, and can be easily customized to meet the specific solution of the customer.
