Diagnosis quality ECG equipment is the type you may have seen as bedside units
in hospitals, in Intensive Care Units, in cardiologists´ offices, etc. It is
intended to detect all kind of electrical malfunctioning of the heart and
therefore requires the lowest noise, widest bandwidth and best overall quality.
Everybody aims at a high quality design but actually only a few solutions
require the high quality a diagnosis analog front end provides (which comes
with a power and area penalty).
The AD8232 has been designed for Heart Rate detection and ECG monitoring
applications such as over-the-counter home ECG equipment, sports equipment, and
emerging applications including games and entertainment, automotive, laptops,
mobile phones, watches and many others you can think of.
