The ADS1299-4, ADS1299-6, and ADS1299 devices are a family of four-, six-, and
eight-channel, low-noise, 24-bit, simultaneous-sampling delta-sigma (ΔΣ) analog-to-digital
converters (ADCs) with a built-in programmable gain amplifier (PGA), internal reference, and an
onboard oscillator. The ADS1299-x incorporates all commonly-required features for extracranial
electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrocardiography (ECG) applications. With its high levels of
integration and exceptional performance, the ADS1299-x enables the creation of scalable medical
instrumentation systems at significantly reduced size, power, and overall cost.
The ADS1299-x has a flexible input multiplexer per channel that can be independently
connected to the internally-generated signals for test, temperature, and lead-off detection.
Additionally, any configuration of input channels can be selected for derivation of the patient
bias output signal. Optional SRB pins are available to route a common signal to multiple inputs for
a referential montage configuration. The ADS1299-x operates at data rates
from 250 SPS to 16 kSPS. Lead-off detection can be implemented internal to the device
using an excitation current sink or source.
Multiple ADS1299-4, ADS1299-6, or ADS1299 devices can be cascaded in high channel count
systems in a daisy-chain configuration. The ADS1299-x is offered in a TQFP-64 package specified
from –40°C to +85°C.
