The Data Science Automation ECG Simulator plays an essential role in the calibration, test, design, and development of ECG equipment such as ECG monitors. As part of the DSA Life Sciences Workbench, the ECG Simulator uses NI-DAQmx-compatible analog output hardware to generate ECG waveforms from prerecorded files or from a synthetic model.

The ECG Simulator reads files imported from a variety of sources including the MIT-BIH Arrhythmia Database. With the ability to convert and interpret various ECG file formats, you can study how commercial or developmental ECG equipment reacts to even the most irregular arrhythmia.

The ECG Simulator also offers a user-configurable synthetic model to output ECG waveforms based on ANSI/AAMI EC13:1992, including variable heart rate, sampling frequency, QRS amplitude and duration, and T-wave amplitude.
