A Wearable Biomedical Sensing System with Normally-off Computing Architecture
A wearable bio-medical sensing system will be presented, which features monitorings of heart-rate and tri-axial acceleration using a newly developed SoC. A Non-volatile MCU(NVMCU) based on FeRAM for normally-off computing and a noise-tolerant IHR detector have been employed for the SoC design. The SoC consumes 6.14uA for heart-rate monitoring. The sensing sys-tem consumes totally 20uA, allowing two-weeks contin-uous sensing only using a 10-mAh thin-type lithium-ion battery.
