Macro Name  MUSEIC1.1: A multi-parameter signal-acquisition SoC for connected personal health applications
Short Description(max 128 characters)  A single-chip solution for low-power multi-parameter signal acquisition for healthcare applications.
Extra description (optional) MUSEIC is a single-chip solution for low-power multiparameter signal acquisition for healthcare applications. It features 3 ECG readouts as well as a single bio-impedance readout and 2 general purpose analog readouts. Flexible digital interfaces (SPI, I2C, UART and GPIO) are provided to support additional external sensors with digital outputs. The built-in ARMTM Cortex M0 core and HW accelerator for matrix multiply/accumulate operations allows a wide range of on-chip signal conditioning/filtering to be performed. A total of 128kB on-chip SRAM (in 4 banks) is available for code and data use.
