Consumer Medical


Extended battery life, ultra-low power and fast response times are driven by users' desire to quickly know their health status - even on the go. Medical device designers are challenged to implement advanced, memory-intensive functionality, without increasing power consumption.

The system block implementation topology of battery-operated, microcontroller-managed handheld devices like blood glucose monitors and blood pressure monitors differs depending on the sensing, signal processing and required algorithms of the system.

Texas Instruments' broad portfolio of embedded processors, such as ultra-low-power MCUs, and analog instrumentation, amplifiers and control components provides a complete technological palette for your consumer medical device design. On this page, you can find system block diagrams, IC product specifications, collateral, design considerations and tools.
