      I am trying to adquire EMG signal with CY8CKIT-044, does someone make something about that with this module?


      Thank you a lot!

          What do you want to know in this thread?

          Please post the details.

            Hello Kenshow,


            Thank you for your response,


            I´m trying to adquire EMG signal in differential mode using 3 OPAMPs before SAR. Is this method correct? Is there any way to adquire more than 1 channel?

            Another thing, where can I put the reference? I thought put the reference in the Injection channel of SAR but I don´t know how to control the baseline in firmware.

              The EMG signal seems to have a range of about -5 to +5 mV.

              Those. this is ~ 5 times the ECG signal.

              They have similar concomitant problems and interferences.

              Yes, you can use 3 OPAMPs before SAR.

              considering that amplifiers should have a small offset (> + 300mV)

              This forum has several topics about ECG.

              perhaps it makes sense to use specialized microcircuits (Ad8232) boards for EMG   and    ECG.

                Hi Evgeniy,


                thank you for your response. As you said, EMG and ECG have a quite similar adquisition circuit but there are some differences, for example, the reference circuit, I couldn´t find anythin in this forum about that, do you know something about it?

                  These are mainly discussions for PSoC5LP, you will have to adapt them for CY8CKIT-044.

                  Have you searched the forum? eg:


                  or ECG.

                  one of the discussions: PSOC5 ECG UNSTABILITY

                    Thank you, I will take a look in both links you have shared. Is it possible to use the PSoC 5LP integrated in CY8CKIT-044 to use its components within the same project that I designed with PSoC 4?

                      I don't have CY8CKIT-044 so I don't know the answer.

                        No. To use PSoC5 integrated into KIT-044, it has to be programmed in a separate project. Though some people do that, in my opinion it is not worth the hassle. Since PSoC5 is used as a programmer, you have to reprogram back-and-force each time PSoC4 project needs to be updated. If PSoC4 resources are not enough, I would recommend $10 cy8ckit-059 PSoC5 prototyping board, or, in case of opamps, use external ones.


                        Another low budget approach is to utilize low-cost 24-bit Delta Sigma ADC HX711, operating at 80Hz.

                        HX711: 24-bit Delta Sigma ADC interface for weight scale using PSoC

                        which has built-in opamp
