Evaluation kit combines tools for blood pressure monitor applications
Renesas Electronics has expanded its healthcare solution lineup with a new blood pressure monitoring evaluation kit. The new kit contains all the hardware and software elements needed to jump start blood pressure measurement design. The kit comprises a pressure sensor, pump, arm cuff, LCD panel, electronically controlled valve, and a reference board that incorporates an RL78 MCU-based ASSP that includes analog functions needed for blood pressure measurement. Reference software and GUI development tool are also part of the new kit. Using the new kit, system manufacturers can instantly begin their system evaluations and significantly decrease their development time.
The company has developed the new blood pressure monitoring evaluation kit to ease the development pain points, offering functions close to those used in actual blood pressure monitors thus hastening blood pressure measurement system development.
