Abstract

In this study, we developed a conceptual design for a high resolution multichannel ECG data acquisition system for recording of electrical activity of the heart. The system has modular architecture, both in hardware and software layers. It consists of several recording units controlled by sub-microcontrollers, and one main unit that contains the main-microcontroller. Special distributed message based operating system has been developed and embedded to sub-microcontrollers and main-microcontroller to provide communication between them. The operating system is accomplished by the General Purpose Parallel Bus (GPPB) developed for this design. GPPB is responsible to convey commands, data, addresses, and handshaking messages. In each recording unit, 8 channels have been sampled by octal simultaneous 24-bit high resolution S-? analog-to-digital converter. Sampled data is read out via Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) by the corresponding sub-microcontroller. Then, data in the sub-microcontrollers are transferred to the main-microcontroller using GPPB. At the last step, recorded data is sent from the main-microcontroller to the computer using USB interface.
