Reference design for a wise physique fats scale that may show physique weight, physique mass index (BMI), physique fats share and physique impedance.
Are you a health freak or a health-conscious one that tries to maintain match, and physique mass index (BMI) doesn’t give the whole image about fats share or your physique composition. So, if you wish to know your physique composition or wish to know if the mass/muscle ratio within the physique is satisfactory, then this reference design will provide help to construct your individual sensible physique fats scale that may provide help to analyse your physique composition.
The Sensible Physique Fats Scale from Renesas’ provides you full details about your physique composition. The reference design contains 4 weighing sensors together with 4 metallic electrodes for physique impedance measurement. The reference design additionally options Renesas RL78/L1A MCU then allows Bluetooth connectivity to the system.
The consumer simply must feed info akin to peak, gender, and age, and the sensible scale measures the burden and makes use of the 4 metallic electrodes to measure impedance. The MCU makes use of all of the above information to measure physique fats share and different well being parameters. The ensuing worth calculated from weight and bio-impedance might be displayed on an LCD monitor and checked via a smartphone utility concurrently. This resolution options the RL78/L1A MCU built-in with wealthy analog peripherals and an LCD and the RL78/G1D MCU’s BLE communication operate. It’s appropriate for healthcare bio-sensing purposes.
The reference design has been examined by Renesas and is appropriate for private use solely. The corporate claims that the reference design is appropriate for non-medical units. Renesas has offered all of the required assets akin to payments of supplies, schematics, Gerber recordsdata, firmware, and so on to simplify constructing it. You may learn extra concerning the reference design and obtain the assets from right here.
