NXP® MCUs power the latest monitor smart designs for measuring heart rate during exercise or vigorous activity.
Newer heart rate monitors consist of two main components: a signal acquisition sensor/transmitter and a receiver (wristwatch or smart phone). Today, signal acquisition sensors can even be integrated into fabric worn by the user or patient.
NXP MCUs analyze the ECG signal and determine the heat rate. Our 8-bit MCUs support simple heart rate monitor; higher-end 32-bit MCUs enable more complex functions, such as:
- Heart rate variability
- Activity level
- Breathing rate
