Renesas MCUs integrate the on-chip A/D and D/A converters required in pulse oximeters, as well as an LCD drive-control circuit. These on-chip features reduce the number of external components, making the MCUs ideal choices for compact size and low cost pulse oximeter solutions.

This pulse oximeter solution provides a single platform for digital health, features an easy industrial and mechanical design, and enables seamless integration for fitness and medical applications. These applications include fitness trackers, smartphone cases with integrated bio-sensing, athletic garments, worker safety, and mobile or tabletop pulse oximeter devices. Power and timing devices are available to complete the solution. 

Key Features:

  • Measures heart rate, blood oxygen concentration, respiration rate, heart rate variability (stress), ambient light level, proximity, and color RGB for circadian rhythm 
  • Fully integrated, ultra-thin form factor 
  • Factory calibrated pulse oximeter; no end-of-line calibration required
  • Invisible optical sensing; works behind IR ink and simplifies industrial design
