Wearable FPGA based wireless sensor platform

Annu Int Conf IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2007;2007:2288-91. doi: 10.1109/IEMBS.2007.4352782.


A new wearable sensor platform has been developed. It is based on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. Because of this the hardware is very flexible and gives the platform unique opportunities for research of a wide range of architectures, applications and signal processing algorithms. The platform has been named NWSP, for Nokia Wrist- Attached Sensor Platform. This document describes the hardware, the firmware and applications of the platform.
