Analog Devices, Inc.
(NASDAQ: ADI) unveiled today a high-precision, low-power meter-on-a-chip for a range of portable health applications such as point-of-care diagnostics, home/self-test health devices, and wearable vital signs monitors, including those for sports and fitness. The ADuCM350 single-chip, scalable platform combines a 16-bit accurate analog front-end (AFE), which includes a configurable multi-sensor switch matrix, hardware waveform generator and discrete Fourier transform (DFT) engine, with a processing subsystem and an industry-standard software development environment to support a complete product development roadmap. The
offers easy connectivity to passive and active sensors and supports sensor fusion functionality that enables exceptionally accurate measurements of human physiological data even in the presence of interferers.
