EnSilica evaluation platform for EN62020 sensor interface ASIC speeds up development of wearable fitness and healthcare sensor devices
The eSi-MediSense is a customizable ASIC platform for ultra-low-power wireless vital signs and medical monitoring products. This versatile platform allows for fast time to market of medical and healthcare sensor wearables requiring sub GHz ISM band, BLE and/or NFC wireless connectivity. A high-performance configurable processor provides on-chip pre-processing of the sensor data with an optional machine learning accelerator providing the capability of performing AI at the edge.
The platform supports the accurate and reliable measurement of ECG, heart rate, respiration rate, and temperature. A flexible interface is also provided for electro chemical-based measurement such as amperometric, voltammetric, SpO2 oximeter or impedance measurements.
EnSilica's ASIC design team have the expertise to develop and integrate additional custom sensor interfaces with demanding performance requirements. External sensor chips can be interfaced using SPI or I2C and powered from the device's power management unit. The ASIC offers a high level of integration with minimum external components, low power consumption and a small footprint, and is designed to meet the relevant medical safety and performance requirements.
