The electrocardiogram featured in this issue’s Circuit Centre requires high- precision, low-noise analogue circuitry and a controller which can handle many input and output signals. This is reflected in the choice of parts highlighted in the following pages, which includes multiplexers, precision op amps and two very different microcontrollers from Cypress Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductors.
