I think is a problem with the initialization of the PIC SPI speed or something, but when i reviewed this in a osciloscope the speed was fine SCK was 1MHz as configuredif someone had worked on this and can help me, it would be very useful. I added the code below. I have an uart port connected to see what is the response. The header files contain the definitions and functions, i posted the functions used in the main code. The definitions are the same that in the ADS datasheet. Super Member. You want it to sample on the falling clock edge. Starting Member. Also very bad style one of the bytes to be send outside function, other one inside, and returned 2 bytes to be expected inside function. Cino you cannot return multiply bytes using comma operator. On the other hand I return using a comma and it worked the same as if i put only the response in another variable. I need urgent help. We are willing to help, you just need to re-post your latest code with actual valid C syntax for us to debug with you. As of now the behavior is too undefined to guess. The code below is the latest code i used to debug the PIC, and the answer that i got was 0xC In the osciloscope everything looks like is working, but the response isn't as expected. Thanks, atn Santiago. Carefully read through section 9 of the ADS datasheet. For most of TI's data converters, you need to send a SDATAC 0x11 command first thing before you can read or write to the different registers after every reset. Latest Posts. Active Posts. All FAQs.
Saving Lives With Open-Source Electrocardiography
Remember Me? I read the datasheet of ADS and saw the various registers used for different operations. However I am not able to figure out how the command is to be written in SPI. I can't figure out a format in which the instructions are to be written. I understand question seems very much naive since I am a beginner at this. Any help is sincerely appreciated :. Remember that the SPI is an exchange of values and that even in 'master' more on that device you should remember to read back the received values form the SSPBUF after each exchange even if you do nothing with the value - it can prevent other problems later on. I wold recommend that you write a short function or 2 that handles that part for you based on some parameters. As for the format there are two possible answers. Unfortunately these are not terms that the PIC uses and so a little 'translation' is required. At the higher level i. By the look of it, most of the 'instructions' to the chip are single values to do with the very basic operation of the device. There are only 2 instructions that have additional values and they are to read and write to one or more registers. I really can't help you much with what you need to write to or read from the registers - for that you will just have to study thew data sheet and work out what your design has to achieve. Thanks for the information It really helped clear some concepts. But what I was looking for was a sample code for SPI communication to register addresses or something of that sort. The term has been invented by the code author. I am writing the code in C. So how should the instruction be? I know you talked about writing but the principles are the same but a bit easier to test that you are getting a valid SPI exchange going. The data sheet page 23 shows that the ID register has an address of 0x00 and is 8 bits long.

December edited August in Other Platforms. So I've been wanting to do something like this for a while and you guys got me reinvigorated. My intention is to power it from my phone and use that for the signal processing or relaying it to a computer if that is not sufficient. Hopefully I can help out on the signal processing side with you guys. December James, this looks to be a fascinating parallel development thread to what is going on at OpenBCI. Also appealing is the way you do the single sided boards in your home reflow solder oven. Do you have any names, posts or links on the toolchain you are using for design, layout, board manufacturing, etc. I'm completely impressed on how you are making this look so easy. I just posted an entry about the beginnings of an android app. I'm kind of out of interesting things to do on it though until I have a board now You can also do dual sided boards in a home oven. If this works out well I'll very likely try some sort of mashup between Freedom with an ADS - the Overo brings in WiFI, bluetooth, and a heck of a lot of processing power in a small footprint. It just gets fairly hot so might not feel nice on the head, not to mention throwing off a lot of EMI. For now it seems like smart phones are probably a better target for the processing power if you don't need something standalone. As to toolchains, it sounds like you are asking about the hardware side more than software. I use Altium, which is nice and powerful but not so great for open source. However, it's hard to beat momentum - I modified Sparky in probably less than 12 hours, most of which was making footprints. The boards I sent to smart-prototyping. For faster prototypes I like using 4pcb. I really appreciate how clearly you wrote about the bias and SRB lines. It took us a while here to wrap our heads around what TI was going for with those lines. Your writing is so clear, it makes it seem like you got it right away! By the way, regarding your comment about the mystery of our use of the negative inputs instead of the positive ones, I left a comment on your blog explaining what we were thinking.

Big advantage of this shield is possibility to make it easily at home. The shield is equipped by display to show you measured signal real-time. You can use this shield for many application - acquiring your vital signs or further operations with those signals - filtering, analysing etc. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. I designed and modify it exaclty for your purposes or ideas. During PCB design i came out mostly from datasheet and user guide. PCB has prepared button and one programmable diode waiting for your ideas:. I draw some paths on top layer, so its really hard to solder those paths to connector, when you have 2 layers PCB made at home. I would recommend to change PCB design or to use some extension between top layer and connector. Other thing suitable for improving would be connector for ECG cables: I solder ecg cable, but maybe somebody would prefer removable connector. I tried to do PCB as simple as possible to allow make it at home. I did that one on picture on CNC but I am sure you can use some other way mentioned here on instructables. If you decide to change PCB desing, really important thing is to preserve analog part of circuit as clean as possible, try to keep bottom part without any paths needed. Soldering ADSR by hand could be quite tricky. You should clean pads and put little solder on them. If you use lot of a solder wire you wont be able to solder all pins of ADSR. Most important part is placing IC exactly on pads. You can also use hot air to solder IC, but as you can see it can be done using soldering iron: My recomendation is to start soldering with ADSR. During writing code i came out mostly from datasheet, also as an inspiration I used some things I found on GitHub and so on. I wrote code without using any libraries, because I know you can easily understood meaning of code when everything is written step by step. If you prefer well-arranged code, you can move lot of things to libraries. Some parts of code are referenced to datasheet page to better understood why there has to be that part. The benefit of using ADSR is presence of testing circuits which can be programmably set up. I guess this should be your next step. If you can acquire square test circuit, you can be sure that your circuitry work well and you can communicate with ADSR. I would recommend you not to rely on showing test signal, and ECG signal on display and use e. Serial port simply copy those data and display them in some SW.
