ECG Circuit Project

In this lab, students will design an Electrocardiogram (ECG) circuit using Multisim Live, and then build and validate the circuit to produce the most accurate possible heartbeat reading. Students will consider the noise and bias a heart beat signal is subject to when measured with common leads. Using real data, students will design signal conditioning circuitry to amplify and filter the signal to meet a certain requirement.

This is lab 14 of 14 in the course, Analog Electronics.


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Design and implement an amplifier to achieve a desired output.
  2. Assess an input signal and determine filtering needs.
  3. Design and implement a filter to produce a clearer output signal.
  4. Characterize a filter using the bode analyzer.
  5. Build and test a circuit design.
