TMS320VC5505 evaluation module and analog front-end module make up the new C5505 DS Medical Development Kit (MDK).

This will be useful for Medical Electronic Students.TMS320VC5505 is a Low-Power Fixed-Point Digital Signal Processor DSP. A project with this will probably build Analog and DSP Skills to a High Degree. Also when you make a Battery operated Medical device, Power Electronics basics will be understood. Build on this something more, not just a Stethoscope. Make it more sensitive to record the sounds of Joints on Movement. This may help diagnose Bone problems early.

“The main elements of a Digital Stethoscope are the sensor unit that captures the heart and lung sounds (also known as auscultations), digitization, and digital processing of the auscultations for noise reduction, filtering and amplification. Algorithms for heart rate detection and heart defect detection may also be included.”

This site contains popular-science style articles describing many aspects of electrochemistry. New articles are added at irregular intervals, and all articles are periodically updated as recent developments occur in the field.

Extractive metallurgy

“Metal sulfide flotation concentrates can be treated in a number of ways. These include using pyrometallurgy, or smelting at high temperature, in which process the sulfur in the metal sulfide is oxidized with air or oxygen to sulfur dioxide, and molten metal is produced.”


Materials-Science of which Chemical/Electrochemical Engineering is a part; is behind all the development of electronic components and manufacturing. The Backbone is Applied Science. A Super Capacitor or a Special RF Semiconductor can only be developed using the research and efforts of these scientists.

The Sciences or their study has been much nurtured and supported by some countries like the USA. This is the foundation on which many other Technologies like Electronics and Computing thrive. In many other countries this is many times not even perceived as its is not ‘glamorous’ and requires much efforts and dedication.

“If the Foundation of Applied Sciences is sound, the Building of Technology is Sturdy”

Human Beings are helped or hampered by many types of Microbes. From the Sub-Microbe virus to animal like Bacterium and plant like Fungi.

An Affordable Portable Electronic Microbe Detector using Mass Spectrometry; may be very useful for Small HealthCare Centers and Homes. If a Person Breathes into an adapter in the instrument, it should show a simple analysis of the Air Microbe Levels. It can also be used for CleanRoom Air Purity Indication.

This is just an idea for an urgent need, this may prevent spread of flu to escalate into an epidemic; due to early detection of microbe, at the root, in every home.

Here are some Mass Spectrometry Resources that students can study and attempt to research to Develop a cost-effective consumer flu-detection device.

The Heart, Liver and Kidney form a Vital Organ Tripod, on which rests the most Important Organ… Think about it……You are Thinking with it. Rack your Grey Matter with your copy of the Gray’s Anatomy; to figure this Puzzle within.Digital Electronic Stethoscopes

Any of these three Legs, of this Tripod, Can be affected by wrong eating and living habits. After a certain age, you have to only Eat what you can burn, The rest is Poison. An electrician knows, If an Equipment is rated for for 12-Volts 3-Amps; He has to use within its Limits. An Electronics Engineer knows that he should never go near the “Absolute Maximum ratings”.

Study more about the Vital Organ called Heart, by building an Electronic Stethoscope. See the Block Diagram (SBD) – Digital Stethoscope – TI.com. The sounds are very faint and a low frequency. It is a Bionic Challenge to acquire and amplify these small signals. Learn more about these concepts here …

The SS30L Electronic Stethoscope will allow you to record and listen to heart sounds and Korotkoff sounds.

Here is a another Semiconductor Application from Maxim-IC Digital Stethoscope.
