AD8232 ECG Sensor Module
ECG is also known as Electrocardiogram, is a noninvasive medical procedure to measure the electrical activity of the Heart. This process of measuring the heart activity is called as Electrocardiography. This ECG Sensor Module measures this activity and gives an output which can be directly connected to an Arduino, Raspberry Pi (via ADC like MCP3008) or any other Micro-controller.
This ECG Sensor Module is based upon Analog Devices Award Winning IC AD8232. Basically, AD8232 is an integrated signal conditioning block for ECG and other bio-potential measurement applications. It is designed to extract, amplify, and filter small bio-potential signals in the presence of noisy conditions, such as those created by motion or remote electrode placement. This design allows for an ultralow power analog-to-digital converter (ADC) or an embedded micro-controller to acquire the output signal easily.
Applications of AD8232 ECG Module
- Fitness and sports heart rate monitoring
- Portable ECG
- Remote health monitor
- Game peripheral equipment
- Bio-electricity signal collection
