IEEE Consultants Network Meeting - Microcontrollers in Healthcare: Meeting Home Portable Healthcare Device Requirements
IEEE Central Texas Consultants Network Meeting
Topic/Title: Microcontrollers in Healthcare: Meeting Home Portable Healthcare Device Requirements
Abstract: Portable healthcare devices are evolving into comprehensive gadgets that include advanced communication protocols, stylish user interfaces, and data logging resources. This evolution cannot come at the cost of key application requirements for long battery life, accurate and reliable measurements, and cost effectiveness. The Freescale Kinetis K50 ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller with integrated analog front end satisfies healthcare device requirements with exceptional low power design and integration of key peripherals such as capacitive touch sensing hardware.
