Bosch Sensortec

The company’s first generation of sensor hub products offer optimized vital sensing features. that fuse photoplethysmography (PPG) signals with the onboard inertial MEMS sensors signals for motion-compensated heart rate measurement. The BHV250 and BHV160 sensors are designed for always-on sensor enabled wearable applications such as fitness wristbands, earphones and smart textiles. Tey feature ultra-low power consumption in a compact package, with integrated software and a wide-range support for different PPG chipsets. The integrated software from Firstbeat processes raw sensor data to open up a world of motion-compensated vital monitoring, activity recognition applications and gesture based user interfaces. The BHV250 and BHV160 integrate innovative three- and six-axis inertial MEMS sensors, respectively. The BHV160 measures 3 x 3 x 0.95 mm3, while the BHV250 measures 2.2 x 2.2 x 0.95 mm3. Samples are available today to qualified customers. Mass production is ramping up in Q2 2016. A video is available at
