The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 measure electro cardiac (ECG)
signals, thoracic impedance, pacing artifacts, and lead-on/off
status and output this information in the form of a data frame
supplying either lead/vector or electrode data at programmable
data rates. Its low power and small size make it suitable for
portable, battery-powered applications. The high performance
also makes it suitable for higher end diagnostic machines.
The ADAS1000-4 is a full-featured, 3-channel ECG including
respiration and pace detection, while the ADAS1000-3 offers
only ECG channels with no respiration or pace features.
The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 are designed to simplify
the task of acquiring and ensuring quality ECG signals.
They provide a low power, small data acquisition system for
biopotential applications. Auxiliary features that aid in better
quality ECG signal acquisition include: multichannel averaged
driven lead, selectable reference drive, fast overload recovery,
flexible respiration circuitry returning magnitude and phase
information, internal pace detection algorithm operating
on three leads, and the option of ac or dc lead-off detection.
Several digital output options ensure flexibility when monitor-
ing and analyzing signals. Value-added cardiac post processing
is executed externally on a DSP, microprocessor, or FPGA.
Because ECG systems span different applications, the
ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 feature a power/noise scaling
architecture where the noise can be reduced at the expense
of increasing power consumption. Signal acquisition channels
may be shut down to save power. Data rates can be reduced to
To ease manufacturing tests and development as well as offer
holistic power-up testing, the ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4
offer a suite of features, such as dc and ac test excitation via
the calibration DAC and CRC redundancy testing in addition
to readback of all relevant register address space.
The input structure is a differential amplifier input thereby
allowing users a variety of configuration options to best suit
The ADAS1000-3/ADAS1000-4 are available in two package
options: either a 56-lead LFCSP or a 64-lead LQFP package;
they are specified over −40°C to +85°C temperature range.
