Microchip’s single-chip vibrating mesh nebulizer demonstration board is ideal for cost-effective drug delivery devices and has many advantages, such as a small size, portability, quiet operation, short treatment times, battery operation, increased output efficiency and minimal residual volume. The integrated Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) on Microchip’s PIC16F1713 8-bit MCU significantly offload the MCU’s core in handling the control functions of a piezoelectric transducer mesh nebulizer.
- Single-chip implementation of a piezoelectric vibrating mesh nebulizer
- Cost-effective drug delivery method
- Boost and Piezo output stages use only discrete components
- Core Independent Peripherals (CIP) handle the following functions of this demo:
- The CLC, PWMs, op amps, comparators and DACs drive the first boost stage
- The NCO drives the piezo output stage
- CIPs significantly offload the MCU’s core, thereby freeing it up for other tasks
- Powered by three AAA batteries, USB or external power supply
- Test points and USB interface for easy development and debugging
Microchip’s Ultra Low-Power or ULP Connected, Wearable Activity Monitor Demonstration Board can be used as the starting point for the design of more advanced activity and biometric measurement devices in medical home monitoring, patient tracking and drug delivery compliance devices. These devices measure and analyze sleep quality, heart rate, body temperature, blood oxygen and more. Bluetooth connectivity allows the demo to communicate with tablets, smartphones or PCs for IoT capability.
- Features the high-performance, SAML21 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ microcontroller with Ultra Low-Power technology, the BTLC1000 4.1 Bluetooth Low Energy Module, the ECC508A CryptoAuthentication chip and other sensor chips.
- Allows for easy development of more advanced activity tracker functions
- Biometric measurement capability: Heart rate, blood oxygen and body temperature (using other Microchip reference designs)
- Smartphone/tablet and IoT capability thanks to BLE module
- Low overall BOM cost due to high level of integration possibilities
