Most analog-to-digital converters used for biomedical signal acquisition have a resolution of 8, 12 or 16 bits. This indicates the number of divisions that the range of amplitudes of the signal can be divided into for purposes of digitization. For example, an 8-bit analog-to-digital converter can represent a signal with 28=256 individual levels. 0039 V. Variations of less than that value would not be seen in the signal. 0000153 V Thus, the higher the number of bits converted by an analog-to-digital converter, the better the resolution.

It must be stressed that the discussion here is not a complete one but rather covers what are considered to be essentials for someone trying to obtain the IPSG. Engineering issues regarding sensing and signal processing are major subjects in the field of biomedical engineering and involve many technical issues not covered in this Chapter. Instead, the focus has been on issues related to description of signals, obtaining the signals used in the IPSG, and those steps of signal processing that are commonly applied with this diagnostic procedure.
