The Electrocardiograph (ECG) Accessory features NXP® sensors and MCUs to monitor the user’s heart rate.
This iPod app-based solution uses a function-specific sensor that measures heart rate signals and then sends the data to a smart phone application for sharing with a healthcare provider.
The same approach could be used for designs such as pressure-based altimeters, breathalyzers, weather monitoring stations, and blood glucose monitors.
Speed development time when designing your portable medical device with Our Healthcare Analog Front End (AFE) reference platform which includes a complete hardware platform, schematics and software. Based on the Kinetis Microcontroller K53 measurement.
