Single-lead Heart Rate Monitor Analog Front End

Analog Device’s  AD8232 is an integrated signal conditioning block for ECG and other biopotential measurement applications. It is designed to extract, amplify, and filter small biopotential 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 or an embedded microcontroller to acquire the output signal easily.

The device can implement a two-pole high-pass filter for eliminating motion artifacts and the electrode half-cell potential. This filter is tightly coupled with the instrumentation architecture of the amplifier to allow both large gain and high-pass filtering in a single stage. An uncommitted operational amplifier enables the creation of a three-pole low-pass filter to remove additional noise. The user can select the frequency cutoff of all filters to suit different types of applications.

The AD8232 is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm, 20-lead LFCSP package. Performance is specified from 0°C to 70°C and is operational from −40°C to +85°C.
