Statistical calculations on signals commonly used in feature extraction. In software processing, statistical computation is an easy task. However, providing a computer requires high costs for simple statistical processing. Another consideration is the need for implementation with real-time and portable processing. Therefore, an alternative device is needed, one of which is the field programmable gate array (FPGA). FPGA is a logic circuit board that can be reconfigured according to computing needs. FPGA can also be used as a prototyping of electronic chips. However, implementing statistical formulas in FPGA is interesting in developing its architecture. Therefore, this research proposes a logic circuit design that can be used for first-order statistical calculations. Statistical parameters include the mean, variance, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis. The validation test was performed on the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal series and compared with manual calculations. Validation shows that the mean and variance has very high accuracy with an average error of less than 0.06%.
