Hi guys

i want to use "Arduino mega 2560 " as data acquisition,
but the analog signal is bipolar(ECG signal)

so can i direct measure this signal or i need signal conditioning circuit?

You will need some form of external signal conditioning as the arduino analog inputs cannot safety handle negative voltages (below -0.5vdc) or positive voltages about Vcc + 0.5vdc. This same voltage limit applies to the digital input pins also.

Well there is a Atmel datasheet avalible that covers the complete mega2560 chip that has sections covering the build in ADC.
