Continua Demonstration Platform

Continua Certified Demonstration Platform for V850 MCU

Connected portable medical devices, such as blood glucose meters and blood pressure monitor, implement multiple standards to support the Continua Health Alliance’s End-to-End Architecture for patient/doctor information exchange. Our Continua Certified Demonstration Platform illustrate an implementation of Blood Glucose Meter with a PM-Store option to allow user store measurement during off-line mode.

The increase in software requires higher performing MCU but still subjected to the same battery with limited capacity.

Renesas energy efficient V850ES/Jx3-L, delivering 1.9DMIPS/MHz with memory up to 1MB with USB support, is suitable to enable these modern, connected personal healthcare devices, of which the software requirement continues to increase but has to be powered by the battery with the same capacity.
