A development that's being called the first electrocardiogram-on-chip combines Freescale Semiconductor Inc.'s microcontrollers with embedded software from Monebo Technologies Inc. The companies said Monebo's Kinetic algorithms can be paired with any device in the chip maker's controller line, from 8 to 32 bits, to yield solutions tailored to the requirements of given heart-monitoring applications. The company's algorithms already run on a range of PC and embedded platforms, but the Freescale deal marks Monebo's first effort to market a joint turnkey solution to OEMs.
