BioAmp EXG Pill is a small (2.54 X 1.00 cm) and elegant Analog Front End (AFE) board for BioPotential signal acquisition that you can use with any 5v Micro Controller Unit (MCU) with an ADC. It is capable of recording publication grade BioPotential signals like ECG, EMG, EOG, and EEG without the inclusion of any dedicated Hardware/Software filter, see BioAmp EXG Pill v0.7 intro video for more info. The v1.0 of BioAmp EXG pill provides even more flexibilty with configuration option for Gain, BandPass, Filter, and Electrodes.
|Basic Arduino Circuit||Electromyography (EMG)|
|Electrooculography (EOG) Horizontal||Electrooculography (EOG) Vertical|
|Electrocardiography (ECG) Lead 1||Electroencephalography (EEG)|
BioAmp EXG Pill works with any 5V microcontroller with an ADC like Arduino UNO/Nano or you can use dedicated 5v compatible ADC like ADS1115. To help with signal processing and cleaning you can use the included Arduino example sketches listed below.
