MAXREFDES103#: Wrist-Based SpO2, HR, and HRV Health Sensor Platform



The MAXREFDES103# is a wrist-worn wearable form factor that demonstrates the high sensitivity and algorithm processing functions for health-sensing applications. This health sensor band platform includes an enclosure and a biometric sensor hub with an embedded algorithm for heart rate and SpO2 (MAX32664C) which processes PPG signals from the analog-front-end (AFE) sensor (MAX86141). 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 on the Design Resources tab. The board is also available for purchase.
