Analog vs. Digital Sensors - What's the difference?

Analog Sensor Characteristics

Analog sensors require one individual connections for each output signal provided. In other words, 1 port of the biosignalsplux hub is occupied by 1 sensor connection and only 1 sensor signals is acquired via this connection.


Digital Sensor Characteristics

Digital sensors require only one connection to provide multiple output signals. In other words, 1 port of the biosignalsplux hub is occupied by 1 sensor connection but multiple signals be acquired via this connection.

Analog sensors provide 1 output signal (0V to 3V) per connection which is sampled by the biosignalsplux hub. Although this satisfies the needs of many single-signal sensors (e.g. Electrodermal Activity), this setup can be limitative when using multi-signal sensors such as the biosignalsplux Accelerometer (ACC).

This sensor provides 3 individual output signals resulting in the occupation of 3 of the 8 available ports of biosignalsplux hubs. The number of sensors that can be used simultaneously with the ACC is, therefore, reduced as only 5 other ports for single-channel sensors are left available.

Analog Sensor Limitations

Digital sensors provide multiple pre-formatted output signals per connection by following a digital communication protocol (SPI). Such sensors provide the necessary multi-signal data which is required for the computation of physiological signals that can otherwise not be extracted from a single analog signal (e.g. SpO2).

For instance, for the computation of the Blood Oxygen Saturation (SpO2), it is needed to monitor the reflection and absorbance of different light waves (red & infra-red) of haemoglobin in the blood stream. This results in 2 individual output signals (one for the red-light information and one for the infra-red light information) from which the SpO2 value can be computed.

Digital senors enable the acquisition of multiple input signals when needed without compromising the number of sensors that can be connected simultaneously to the biosignalsplux hub.
