Future Electronics Promotes NXP’s New Narrowband Receiver for Healthcare Monitoring

Montreal, Canada – November 24, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate availability of NXP’s new narrowband receivers for healthcare patient monitoring applications.

NXP’s RF-IF building block ICs are ideal for niche market handheld devices. A major niche market is medical monitoring and data management, where a human machine interface (HMI) is critical to the patient’s well-being and life support.

The SA606 can be used to “connect” a cardiac patient’s implanted device to the clinic or doctor’s office via a standard phone line or cellular phone. The application employs the SA606 as a narrowband receiver, used to receive data that alerts system protocols. Information transmitted from the implanted heart device is received using an antenna similar to a stethoscope head attached to the patient transceiver monitor. At a scheduled time or whenever the clinic asks the patient to transmit, the monitor is simply connected to a regular phone line, the antenna is held over the implanted heart device, and the transmit button is pushed. The patient monitor sends the implanted device information and turns itself off when done.

The SA606 is a low voltage high performance monolithic FM IF system incorporating a mixer/oscillator, two limiting intermediate frequency amplifier blocks, quadrature detector, logarithmic Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI), voltage regulator and audio and RSSI op amps.

The SA606 remote monitoring receiver operates from 60kHz to 80kHz, using the IF limiting amplifier and RSSI portion of the RF-IF device to amplify and output the amplitude shift keyed (ASK) data to an ADC in a MCU. The MCU has a DSP which is used to resolve pertinent information in the ASK data signal and output the patient’s data and preferred system protocols.

Future Electronics Features Design Consideration Tips in FTM for High Speed RS-485 Data Links

Montreal, Canada – November 16, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently featured an article written by Thomas Kugelstadt, an Applications Engineer for Intersil, in the company’s monthly publication, Future Technology Magazine.

In the article, Kugelstadt discusses signal degradation on the bus and key transceiver requirements for reliable high speed transmission, and offers design tips for system and bus node designs, along with a set of general high speed design guidelines.

The article first addresses signal degradation through jitter, explaining that both driver and receiver pulse skews and pattern dependent cable skew cause signal jitter. Driver and receiver pulse skew are the difference in propagation delays for the rising and falling edges of the driver and receiver. This skew determines the pulse distortion occurring between the single-ended input and the differential output of a driver, and between the differential input and the single-ended output of a receiver.

In order to reduce jitter, data coding schemes can be applied to remove the large DC content of long bit sequences of 1s and 0s by introducing more transitions into the data stream. The encoded signal charges and discharges the cable capacitance more equally, and generates more consistent signal amplitudes.

Kugelstad goes on to discuss transceiver requirements and methods for counteracting signal degradation issues. He recommends choosing high speed transceivers with large differential output voltages (VOD) and small skews. Large driver VOD overcomes the reduction in signal amplitude due to cable attenuation, data encoding and common mode loading (result of ground potential differences), and ensures sufficient noise margin at the remote receiver inputs.

Next, the author provides bus node design tips, and points out that the pin-out of an RS-485 transceiver is tailored for a straightforward bus node design, as the bus terminals are located on one side of the IC, and the single-ended data lines and control lines are on the opposite side. High speed bus nodes require the application of controlled impedance transmission lines to assure low electromagnetic interference (EMI).

In conclusion, Kugelstadt explains that in order to overcome the signal degradation issues of high speed data networks exposed to harsh environments, designers must pay careful attention to the system design and board layout and use devices that provide exceptionally high output drive capability and highly accurate switching performance.
