Optical Sensor Performs Accurate Heart Rate Monitoring For Wearables

Optical Sensor Performs Accurate Heart Rate Monitoring For Wearables
ROHM Semiconductor

Described as an optical sensor for heart rate monitoring optimized for wearable devices such as sports bands and smart watches, the BH1790GLC leverages proprietary analog circuit technology and an optical sensor to improve sensitivity, allowing pulse waves to be detected with high accuracy, even with low LED brightness. This reduces power consumption by approximately 74% compared to similar devices. A datasheet is available at http://www.rohm.com/web/global/datasheet/BH1790GLC/bh1790glc-e
