Maxim Integrated Products announced their MAX30101 heart-rate sensor is integrated into the Raku Raku Smartphone F-01L from Fujitsu Connected Technologies. The smartphone measures heart rate and sleep patterns, and with the MAX30101, the smartphone can also measure stress levels and the aging of blood vessels.

The MAX30101 enables accurate measurements of vital signs and is part of Maxim’s family of biosensor products for health-related use cases. By integrating various functions, the module provides a complete system solution to ease the design-in process for mobile and wearable devices. Operating on a 1.8V input and a separate 5.0V supply for the internal LEDs, the module can be shut down through software with near-zero standby current. Communication is through a standard I2C-compatible interface, and it operates over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

MAX30101 features:
Small Size: Available in a tiny (5.6mm × 3.3mm × 1.55mm) 14-pin optical module
Low Power: Programmable sample rate and LED current provide ultra-low-power operation for mobile devices (< 1mW) and ultra-low shutdown current (0.7μA, typical)
