It's been a long time since we published an update, and we know you've all been looking forward to this one. Although package delivery got delayed a bit, there is good news! We have finally packaged your BioAmp EXG Pill kits with some updated content, and we believe you'll love them even more now. Read the full update.
Espressif's ESP32 is a feature-rich MCU with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for a wide-range of applications. It's 12 bit ADC input is a little noisy, but it can easily be coupled with the BioAmp EXG Pill to record ECG, EMG, EOG, and EEG. Read the full update.
This is your last chance to support our initiative to provide a fully open source hardware and software solution for DIY Neuroscience! Come check it out! Read the full update.
Built around Microchip's SAMD21, Adafruit's QT Py (Cutie Pie) is indeed a cute little board. Its 12-bit ADC input is pretty good, and it can easily be coupled with BioAmp EXG Pill to record ECG, EMG, EOG, and EEG. This update includes QT Py circuit diagrams for several examples use cases. It also provides some setup advice inspired by NNNI's recent review video (thanks NNNI!) and offers a glimpse at what we'll be talking about in our next update. Read the full update.
This update includes a walkthrough of electroencephalography (EEG) sampling for BioAmp EXG Pill. It also includes a demo of an EOG-based drowsiness-detection application. Read the full update.
Up to this point, we've been showing off the capabilities of BioAmp EXG Pill when it's used with an Arduino Nano (ATMega328P @ 16 MHz), which is enough for most projects. However, it can do even more when paired with other development boards. One of our beta testers, Rameet Singh Sachar, used a Raspberry Pi Zero and BioAmp EXG Pill to create an image-capture machine that can be controlled with the blink of an eye! This update also explains our decision, in consultation with Crowd Supply, to extend our campaign by two weeks. Read the full update.
This update includes a walkthrough of electrooculography (EOG) and eye-blink-detection applications for BioAmp EXG Pill. It also includes photographs of our matte black and glossy black production PCBs! Read the full update.
An accurate heartbeat detection (peak detection) algorithm that works on a small microcontroller is a pretty complex task but, with our robust standard deviation-based peak detection algorithm, you can detect heartbeats very easily even on an Arduino Nano. Read the full update.
Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. EMG is also used as a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction, or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission. This update includes examples of EMG-related projects built around BioAmp EXG Pill. Read the full update.
This update includes a description of BioAmp EXG Pill, a brief history of the project, and a few videos that showcase how it can be used, recent improvements we've made, and examples of applications from our beta testers. Read the full update.
Crowdfunding has begun for the BioAmp EXG Pill. Our long wait is finally over! This board is a versatile solution for measuring all biopotential signals. And the best part is, you can configure it to meet the requirements of whatever cool project you happen to be working on at the moment! Read the full update.
