Low EMI Isolation for Medical Equipment Applications

July 06, 2011 // By Silicon Laboratories
EMI is especially problematic in medical systems that acquire low-amplitude signals, such as electrocardiographs (ECGs), where signals collected from patients can range from 400 µV to 5 mVpk with 3 dB corner frequencies at 0.05 and 100 Hz. The trend towards higher-frequency, lower-power medical systems complicate EMI management by emitting broader bandwidth RF noise at higher energy levels. Find out what you need to know about EMI and how to minimize the effects in medical electronic applications using digital isolation.
