Application of Forlinx FETMX8MP-C SoM in ECG Monitor

ECG monitor is a kind of medical equipment that is used to monitor and record human ECG in real-time. It can continuously observe the electrical activity of the heart through the display, providing doctors with reliable and valuable indicators of cardiac activity, thus guiding real-time management. ECG monitor has a wide range of applications in the medical field, especially for patients with abnormal ECG activity, such as acute myocardial infarction, various arrhythmias, etc., which plays an important role in auxiliary diagnosis.

Application Scenario

ECG monitor is widely used in various places of the hospital, such as ICU, CCU, operating room, ward and so on. It is suitable for critically ill patients or patients with certain risks after operation, as well as patients who need to monitor ECG signals continuously for a long time. By using an electrocardiogram monitor, doctors can promptly detect abnormalities in patients' physiological indicators, thereby taking appropriate treatment measures to ensure the patients' safety.


1. Accurate monitoring:The electrocardiogram monitor can real-time monitor the patient's cardiac signals, collect the weak signals of cardiac electrical activity through electrodes attached to the patient's body, and display them on the screen after internal circuit processing. In addition to cardiac signals, an electrocardiogram monitor can also simultaneously monitor other physiological parameters such as respiration, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, etc., providing doctors with comprehensive physiological information.

2. Alarm function: The electrocardiogram monitor has an alarm function, which can be set with different alarm thresholds according to the patient's condition and the doctor's requirements. When the monitored parameters exceed the set values, the monitor will emit audio and visual alarms to promptly remind medical staff to take action.

3. Data recording and analysis: The electrocardiogram monitor can automatically record the patient's cardiac data and generate electrocardiograms for analysis. Doctors can analyze the electrocardiogram to understand the patient's cardiac condition, providing a basis for subsequent diagnosis and treatment.

4. Stable operational capability: The electrocardiogram monitor can effectively shield interference factors such as electromyographic signals and electromagnetic signals, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of cardiac data. It can continuously monitor patients' physiological parameters for 24 hours, assisting doctors in promptly detecting changes in the patient's condition.

Technical Features:

  • High performance: The CPU is a 1.6GHz quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 architecture with a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) running up to 2.3TOPS.
  • Network Interface: The SoM natively supports 2 Gigabit network interfaces, which makes data transmission and interaction with external medical information systems (LIS/HIS) efficient and stable.
  • Display and Expansion Interface: It also supports screen interfaces such as LVDS and HDMI, which can meet the display needs in different scenarios, such as dual-screen simultaneous display or heterodyne display, and the highest resolution of HDMI can be reached4K. In addition, communication interfaces support USB 3.0, PCIE Gen 3, SDIO, CAN FD, etc. to connect to various sensors or medical devices.
  • Industrial-grade design and stability: The whole board adopts industrial-grade design and undergoes the stringent 7x24 hours continuous stable operation test and high and low-temperature experiments. This design ensures highly stable operation in various environments, especially in medical environments where continuous operation is required. This is critical for cardiac monitors that require 24/7 monitoring of patient physiological parameters.
