Got a product that helped you solve a perplexing design challenge, or made your design better? Now you have the perfect opportunity to publicly praise it! Hackster and Mouser are teaming up—with 500,000 of their closest friends—to honor the Best IoT Boards of 2016.

The Maker Madness contest is focused on eight companies across eight specialized categories that promote IoT technologies. Maxim is excited to be among these companies. Our hSensor Platform, also known as MAXREFDES100#, is one of the entrants (see Figure 1 for a block diagram of the reference design). The hSensor Platform is an integrated sensor platform that helps you evaluate Maxim’s medical and high-end fitness solutions. The platform integrates a biopotential analog front-end solution, one pulse oximeter and heart-rate sensor, two human body temperature sensors, one 3-axis accelerometer, one 3D accelerometer and 3D gyroscope, and one absolute barometric pressure sensor. If you want to customize operation of this platform, the ARM® mbed™ IoT Device Platform is supported.
