Maxim Integrated Optical pulse oximeter /heart rate sensors and ECG& BioZAFE deliver accurate, continuous monitoring in compact, low power solutions

Maxim Integrated Products rolls out MAX86140 and MAX86141 optical pulse oximeter /heart rate sensors and the MAX30001 electrocardiogram (ECG) and bioimpedance (BioZ) analog front end (AFE).The unique solutions help design preventive healthcare and continuous monitoring solutions for wearable health and fitness applications.

Through compact, low power solutions, these devices enable accurate monitoring of vital signs to monitor wellness/fitness and prevent health problems before they even begin.

Maxim Integrated Products reckon today’s consumers needs real-time monitoring and information about the status of their health. This shift is causing an increased demand for accurate, small, and low-power wearable devices—an important enabler for this new way of thinking.

As continuous monitoring and preventive healthcare become more common, both technology providers and health practitioners must embrace and accommodate these new demandsto be successful.

Maxim’s portfolio of sensors for wearable health and fitness applications allows:

  • Consumers to accurately monitor a variety of key vital signs while being mindful of low power (for longer battery life) and small size (for convenience and comfort).
  • The MAX86140 andMAX86141can be used tomeasure PPG signals on the wrist, finger, and ear to detect heart rate, heart rate variability, and pulse oximetry.
  • The MAX30001 measures ECG and BioZon the chest and wrist to detect heart rate, respiration, and arrhythmias.
  • Compared to competitive solutions, the MAX86140 and MAX86141 require less thanhalf the powerand is approximately one third smaller, while the MAX30001 requires approximately half the power in almost half the size.
  • By collecting beat to beat data about the heart, these solutionscollect accurate data so users can recognize important symptoms when they first begin.
  • In addition, the MAX30001 meets IEC60601-2-47, clinical ECG standards.


“The convergence of clinical grade diagnostics in form factors small enough to integrate into all sorts of smart, everyday clothing is impressive,” said Adrian Straka, Director of Hardware and Manufacturing, SKIIN. “The ultra-small MAX30001 enables SKIIN’s bio-sensing underwear to monitor and track health metrics 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in low power operation.”

“With unmatched power, as well as ultra-small form factor and high accuracy, our robust portfolio of sensor solutions will enable our customers to succeed in this market,” said Andrew Baker, Executive Director of Industrial & Healthcare at Maxim Integrated.
