Maxim Integrated Products’ MAX30101 heart-rate sensor is being integrated into the Raku Raku Smartphone F-01L from Fujitsu Connected Technologies Limited. The smartphone, which measures heart rate and sleep patterns, can be used for applications such as pedometers.
With the MAX30101, the smartphone can also measure stress levels and arterial aging. A popular series for seniors, the Raku Raku Smartphone F-01L has been designed so that even those who are using a smartphone for the first time can use it comfortably.
The MAX30101 enables accurate measurements of vital signs using algorithms produced by Fujitsu. By integrating various functions, the module provides a complete system solution to ease the design-in process for mobile and wearable devices. In addition, it operates on a single 1.8V power supply and a separate 5V power supply for the internal LEDs.
The module can be shut down through software with near-zero standby current, allowing the power rails to remain powered always. Communication is through a standard I2C-compatible interface, and it operates over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
The MAX30101 is available for $4.08 each/1,000. For more details, checkout the MAX30101 datasheet.
