Maxim Integrated Products Inc. has introduced the MAX30102 pulse oximeter and heart rate integrated sensor module that allows system designers to cut time to market for wearable and healthcare products. The module is an ultra-low power solution providing a complete system to save space and ease the design-in process for mobile and wearable device, detailed the company.

Wearable equipment for vital-sign monitoring is rapidly evolving, and analogue integration is at the heart of this. SoC and integrated module solutions are rapidly replacing discrete, multicomponent designs. The MAX30102 integrates red and IR LEDs to modulate LED pulses for oxygen saturation (SpO2) and heart rate measurements.

The MAX30102 is offered as an ultra-low power solution providing a complete system to save space and ease the design-in process for mobile and wearable devices.

According to the company, the module extends battery life and operates on a single 1.8V power supply and a separate 5V power supply for the internal LEDs; maintains a very small solution size without sacrificing optical or electrical performance; integrates internal LEDs, photodetectors, optical elements and low-noise electronics with ambient light rejection; and comes with an evaluation platform that provides a solution for customers to quickly evaluate the module.

Available in a tiny 14-pin optical module (5.6mm x 3.3mm x 1.55mm), the MAX30102 is specified over the -40°C to 85°C temperature range. Pricing starts at $4.13 (1000-up, FOB USA). An evaluation system is available.
