The MAXREFDES101# is a unique evaluation and development platform in a wrist-worn wearable form factor that demonstrates the functions of a wide range of Maxim’s products for health-sensing applications. This second-generation health sensor platform (a follow-on to the MAXREFDES100#) integrates a PPG analog-front-end (AFE) sensor (MAX86141), a biopotential AFE (MAX30001), a human body temperature sensor (MAX30205), a microcontroller (MAX32630), a power-management IC (MAX20303), and a 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope. The complete platform includes a watch enclosure and a biometric sensor hub with an embedded heart-rate algorithm (MAX32664). Algorithm output and raw data can be streamed through Bluetooth® to an Android® app or PC GUI for demonstration, evaluation, and customized development.
Design files, firmware, and software can be found under the Design Resources tab. The board is also available for purchase.
Introducing the Health Sensor Platform 2.0 (MAXREFDES101)
