The system operates on the principle of Time to Rate Conversion. Signals from the heart beat sensor are amplified and level shifted by the Signal Conditioning unit to produce a digital waveform characterised by a fixed pulse width (10 ms) and a period (T1) that varies in inverse proportion to the heart rate. That is to say as the heart rate increases the period decreases and vice versa.

The Digital Pre-processing unit samples T1 on this waveform to produce a 12 bit count that again is inversely proportional to the heart rate.

The Analogue Signal Processing unit converts this 12 bit count to a waveform with a variable pulse width (T2) which is now directly proportional to the heart rate.This is typically accomplished by feeding the count to a digital to analogue converter, using the converter output to charge an op amp configured as an integrator and using this output to reset a monostable. Thus the larger the count the quicker the integrator will reach the reset voltage and the shorter will be the monostable pulse.

The Digital Post-processing unit samples T2 on this waveform and converts to a 3 digit number that directly represents the heart rate in beats per minute suitable for output on seven segment displays.
