Electrocardiogram (ECG)

This project was created by the Cypress Partner: Arrow who is a global distributor as well as a strategic partner for creating development platforms based on Cypress technology.



Project Technology Focuses

  • CYW43907 Dual-Band 802.11n Wi-Fi Arm® Cortex®-R4 MCU
  • PSoC® 5LP Arm Cortex-M3 MCU
  • IBM Watson IoT Cloud
  • Health Diagnostics Sensor Data

Project Requirements 


  • Quicksilver IoT Dev Kit (QUICKSILVER-EVL)
  • PSoC 5LP Prototyping Kit (CY8CKIT-059)
  • ECG Buttons
  • Assembly Components (see tutorial below)


Project Description

The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the capabilities of Cypress’s two featured products, the Quicksilver IoT Dev Kit and the PSoC 5LP MCU. This project utilizes the PSoC to simulate the ECG waveforms similar to what an ECG device would output from a patient. We treat the ECG like a black box and simply collect the data streaming from it. The Quicksilver is used for data formatting and wireless communication between the client devices and the access point. This high rate of data flow exemplifies Quicksilver's ability to transmit data reliably. Additionally, we can potentially connect the Quicksilver as a gateway to an analytics application, such as IBM Watson, to detect abnormalities in heart rates. Analytics are the logical next step. All code, 3D models, and guides are attached to this post.
