ECG acquisition, several leads combined with signals from different body parts (i.e., from the right wrist and the left ankle) are utilized to trace the electric activity of the heart. ECG acquisition board translates the body signal to six leads and processes the signal using a low-pass filter (LPF) and SAR ADC. The acquisition board is composed of: an instrumentation amplifier, a high-pass filter, a 60-Hz notch filter, and a common-level adjuster. But miniaturization or need of portable devices for measuring Bio-Potential parameters has led to design of IC’s for biomedical application with ultra-low power Because of miniaturization i.e. use of lower technology nodes has led to non-idealities which reduces the attenuation of Common Mode to differential component i.e. not CMRR. Because of this demerit the power line interference signal can’t be assumed as a common mode signal. Hence we need to design a power line interference filter to avoid the contamination of the signal.
