Experimental verification of the simulation model for modified digital stochastic measurement (MDSM) of biomedical signals in the time domain, is presented in this paper. This method is based on well-known digital stochastic measurement method (DSMM) with low-resolution analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and accumulation. An electrooculography (EOG) signal is used as an example of a real low nonstationary biomedical signal. Realized experimental model is based on a personal computer (PC) with additional microcontroller hardware for analogue signal processing. The experimental printed circuit board (PCB) has been designed with microcontroller (MCU) STM32F303C6T6. The experimental results are compared with the results of simulations, and the comparison confirms the simulation. Considering obtained results, the suggested model can be used for design and realization of an instrument with sufficient accuracy, benefiting from the hardware simplicity of the method.
