Low Power, 3-Electrode Electrocardiogram (ECG) Analog Front End
ADAS1000 ECG Analog Front End Wins 2011 Best Electronic Design Award in Medical Category.
The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 measure electro cardiac (ECG) signals, thoracic impedance, pacing artifacts, and lead-on/off status and output this information in the form of a data frame supplying either lead/vector or electrode data at programmable data rates. Its low power and small size make it suitable for portable, battery-powered applications. The high performance also makes it suitable for higher end diagnostic machines.
The ADAS1000-4 is a full-featured, 3-channel ECG including respiration and pace detection, while the ADAS1000-3 offers only ECG channels with no respiration or pace features.
The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 are designed to simplify the task of acquiring and ensuring quality ECG signals. They provide a low power, small data acquisition system for biopotential applications. Auxiliary features that aid in better quality ECG signal acquisition include: multichannel averaged driven lead, selectable reference drive, fast overload recovery, flexible respiration circuitry returning magnitude and phase information, internal pace detection algorithm operating on three leads, and the option of ac or dc lead-off detection. Several digital output options ensure flexibility when monitoring and analyzing signals. Value-added cardiac post processing is executed externally on a DSP, microprocessor, or FPGA.
Because ECG systems span different applications, the ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 feature a power/noise scaling architecture where the noise can be reduced at the expense of increasing power consumption. Signal acquisition channels may be shut down to save power. Data rates can be reduced to save power.
To ease manufacturing tests and development as well as offer holistic power-up testing, the ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 offer a suite of features, such as dc and ac test excitation via the calibration DAC and CRC redundancy testing in addition to readback of all relevant register address space.
The input structure is a differential amplifier input thereby allowing users a variety of configuration options to best suit their application.
The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 are available in two package options: either a 56-lead LFCSP or a 64-lead LQFP package; they are specified over −40°C to +85°C temperature range.

The EVAL-ADAS1000SDZ is a fully featured evaluation kit for the ADAS1000. The evaluation kit consists of an evaluation board kitted with 2 ADAS1000 devices capable of demonstrating ECG capture up to 12 leads. Included in the kit is a medical grade +5V wall adaptor with interchangeable worldwide wall plugs and a CD with user software for data capture and display. The software allows control of all ADAS1000 registers, ability to capture and display ECG data, respiration data, pace pulse detection and store data for offline processing. This evaluation board is provided for silicon evaluation purposes and is not designed to be connected directly to animal or human. This board operates in conjunction with the System Development Platform (SDP) or alternatively may be interfaced to directly via a dedicated serial interface connector (J4). The SDP controller board connects to the PC via USB 2.0. The evaluation board connects to the SDP controller board. The ADAS1000 evaluation board cannot be connected directly to the PC. The evaluation software running on the PC will communicate with the evaluation board through the SDP Controller board. The SDP Controller board is a separate list item in the ordering guide below (EVAL-SDP-CB1Z). If you have not previously purchased an SDP Controller board, please do so to ensure a full evaluation setup.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
