Freescale Semiconductor:

AUSTIN, Texas (Business Wire EON) July 31, 2008 -- News Facts:

Freescale Semiconductor and Monebo Technologies have joined forces to deliver a platform for medical equipment using electrocardiogram (ECG) technology. The "ECG-on-a-chip" solution combines Monebo's Kinetic™ ECG software with Freescale's embedded processing technology to enable medical equipment manufacturers to develop easy-to-use ECG monitoring tools. The partnership gives developers freedom of choice for their ECG applications, based on their performance, operating power, integration and system cost needs. The ECG-on-a-chip solution is ideal for a wide spectrum of applied technology, such as:

Clinical ECG devices Stress test devices Holter monitors Cardiac event monitors Bedside patient monitoring Home portable medical devices Health and fitness devices The Monebo software can be combined with key products in Freescale's MCU and embedded MPU portfolio, including

8-bit S08 microcontrollers (MCUs) 16-bit digital signal controllers (DSCs) 32-bit ColdFire MCUs 32-bit Power MCUs PowerQUICC processors i.MX™ application processors Multimedia:

"Freescale believes consumers can monitor their health more effectively if they have access to medical devices that are embedded into their daily lives," said Henri Richard, senior vice president and chief sales and marketing officer at Freescale. "Freescale technology helps broaden the ECG medical device market by speeding time-to-market, offering best-in-class hardware and reducing system cost. Ultimately, ECG-on-a-chip solutions will result in new generations of ECG products designed to help improve the quality of life for millions of people affected by cardiovascular disease." "Individuals affected by many forms of cardiovascular disease often go untreated, as they're either unaware they have the condition or have misgivings about traditional treatments available," said Jose Fernandez-Villasenor, M.D., global medical applications specialist at Freescale. "Breakthrough silicon and software technologies from companies like Freescale and Monebo are making it easier and more cost-effective to monitor heart patients using a critical and widely understood test – the ECG."
