Q: I'm evaluating the ADAS1000 and I don't have a patient simulator, how else might I evaluate the device? can I use a signal/function generator
A: As the EVAL-ADAS1000SDZ was designed for evaluation purposes and as such was not designed to be connected to a human or animal, the best methods for evaluation are to use either a patient simulator or a signal/function generator.Patient simulators are very convenient when evaluating the ADAS1000 as they have a myriad of features applicable for this application, some have respiration features and include pace maker artifacts. The Patient simulator we use during our demonstrations is generally the Fluke PS420. If you don't have a patient simulator, there are some things that you can do with a signal/function generator.
Here, we'll step through how you'd go about using the ADAS1000 evaluation board setup with the SDP board for USB-PC interface and a function generator.
