Blood Pressure Meter
A blood pressure meter, or sphygmomanometer, is a device that is used to measure blood pressure. The meter is used with an inflatable cuff for restricting blood flow and a pump to inflate the cuff. Digital blood pressure meters typically measure both systolic and diastolic pressures by an oscillometric detection method, using a piezoelectric pressure sensor.
A digital blood pressure meter allows easy monitoring of blood pressure at home, in a doctor’s office or in a hospital. Today’s blood pressure meters must meet the demands of measuring, storing and transmitting blood pressure, pulse and other medical data. To meet these demands, Microchip offers a broad portfolio of hardware, software and development tools to build your product as well as demonstration design files to speed up your design’s time to market.
Microchip has what blood pressure meter designers need:
Our cost-efficient, highly-integrated PIC® microcontrollers can lower the BOM cost of digital blood pressure meter designs. High-end integration features include analog, USB, LCD control, touch input sensing, motor control and Core Independent Peripherals.
Analog components, such as low-offset/low-noise op amps, can be used for amplification and conditioning of the pressure sensor output.
