This paper presents a generic programmable analog front-end (AFE) for acquisition and digitization of various biopotential signals. This includes a lead-off detection circuit, an ultra-low current capacitively coupled signal conditioning stage with programmable gain and bandwidth, a new mixed signal automatic gain control (AGC) mechanism and a medically cohesive reconfigurable Sigma Delta ADC. The full system is designed in UMC 0.18 mu m CMOS. The AFE achieves an overall linearity of more 10 bits with 0.47 mu W power consumption. The ADC provides 2nd order noise-shaping while using single integrator and an ENOB of similar to 11 bits with 5 mu W power consumption. The system was successfully verified for various ECG signals from PTB database. This system is intended for portable batteryless u-Healthcare devices.
