The ADPD6000 is a highly integrated analog front end (AFE) designed for measuring various vital signals.

The optical channel is designed as an optical transceiver, stimulating up to four light emitting diodes (LEDs) and measuring the return signal on up to four separate current inputs. The signal chain rejects signal offsets and corruption from asynchronous modulated interference, typically from ambient light, eliminating the need for optical filters or externally controlled dc cancellation circuitry.

The electrocardiography (ECG) signal acquisition is designed to support low noise, diagnostic level measurement in the presence of a variety of interferers. The ECG signal chain has a number of complementary features supporting ECG measurement, such as driven reference for common-mode rejection and lead off detection to identify a fallen electrode.

The body impedance analysis (BIA) signal chain is designed for body impedance measurement with a configurable excitation path and measurement path. A 12-bit digital-to-analog (DAC) is used in the excitation path to generate the sinusoid wave and high precision measurement, with configurable filters used to measure the body response of the stimulus.

The data output and functional configuration use a serial port interface (SPI) on the ADPD6000. The control circuitry includes flexible LED signaling and synchronous detection, digital filters, digital wave generators, and configurable filters.

The ADPD6000 is available in a 2.6 mm × 2.6 mm, 0.4 mm pitch, 36-ball wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP).


  • Wearable health and fitness monitors: heart rate, heart rate variability, SpO2, body impedance analysis, hydration, cuffless noninvasive blood pressure
  • Home patient monitoring
  • Industrial monitoring: particle and aerosol, gas, and conductivity detection

Product Detail

This user guide describes the operation of the EVAL-ADPD6000Z demonstration kit, which is an evaluation module for the ADPD6000.

The ADPD6000 is a fully integrated analog front end (AFE) for wearable vital signal monitoring (VSM) devices. The key functions of the ADPD6000 include photoplethysmography (PPG), electrocardiography (ECG), and body impedance analysis (BIA).

The demonstration kit includes both software and hardware. The EVAL-ADPD6000Z can evaluate the AFE feature and verify the system design based on the AFE. According to the requirements of the application, the user can use a cable connection or Bluetooth connection to establish communication between the PC and the EVAL-ADPD6000Z.

This user guide also describes the example configuration of the different functions of the ADPD6000.

For full details on the ADPD6000, see the ADPD6000 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the EVAL-ADPD6000Z.
