Low-power Wireless Temperature Sensor for Health Monitoring

Patients with severe health problems often require permanent monitoring using low-power devices for a modern superior medical care. In this paper the design concept and implementation of a low-power medical wireless temperature sensor using hardware reconfigurable devices as an alternative to standard microcontrollers will be described. A hardware design with a Xilinx Coolrunner2 CPLD and high accuracy medical temperature sensor as main parts is presented. Power estimation and simulation results are shown to validate the low power consumption of the proposed design.
