Product Details

The AD8233 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 an ultralow power analog-to-digital converter (ADC) or an embedded microcontroller to easily acquire the output signal.

The AD8233 implements 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, thereby saving space and cost.

An uncommitted operational amplifier enables the AD8233 to create 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.

To improve the common-mode rejection of the line frequencies in the system and other undesired interferences, the AD8233 includes an amplifier for driven lead applications, RLD.

The AD8233 includes a fast restore function that reduces the duration of the otherwise long settling tails of the high-pass filters. After an abrupt signal change that rails the amplifier (such as a leads off condition), the AD8233 automatically adjusts to a higher filter cutoff. This feature allows the AD8233 to recover quickly, and therefore, to take valid measurements soon after connecting the electrodes to the subject.

The AD8233 is available in a 2 mm × 1.7 mm, 20-ball WLCSP package. Performance is specified from 0°C to 70°C and is operational from −40°C to +85°C.

EVAL-AD8233 Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The AD8233CB-EBZ evaluation board contains an AD8233 heart rate monitor (HRM) front end conveniently mounted with the necessary components for initial evaluation in fitness applications. Inputs, outputs, supplies, and leads off detection terminals are routed to test pins to simplify connectivity. Switches and jumpers are available for setting the input bias voltage, shutdown (SDN), right leg drive shutdown (RLD SDN), fast restore (FR), and ac/dc leads off detection mode.

The AD8233CB-EBZ evaluation board is a 4-layer board with components mounted on the primary side only. Rubber feet are available on the secondary side for mechanical stability. The layout diagrams are provided as a visual aid and reference design. The printed circuit board (PCB) is designed following standard practices to ensure signal integrity and reduce manufacturing costs. For best WLCSP layout practices, refer to AN-617.

Full details about the AD8233 are available in the AD8233 data sheet, which is available from Analog Devices, Inc., and should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using this evaluation board.
