Samsung unveiled the industry’s first processor Bio created in response to needs associated with the growing popularity ubieralnych innovative devices for health monitoring. Bio processor has already been put into mass production, and devices for health monitoring, in which it will be used, will be available in the first half of 2016.
– The market of smart devices to monitor the condition of the body very rapidly. There is a growing awareness of users and their need for health care, so more and more people are looking for ways to monitor their biological indicators or parameters concerning health, to have constant control over the state of his health – said Ben K. Hur with Samsung Electronics. The new Samsung processor that can process five different signals biometrics is the most versatile chip to monitor the health of the organism on the market today. We expect that it will create many new opportunities for health services.
By using not only the analog input circuits (Analog Front Ends, AFE), but also a microcontroller (MCU), IC-power management (PMIC), a digital signal processor (DSP) and memory eFlash Bio The processor can process the measured biosygnały without the need for external components. The small size of the device and its integrated structure makes it extremely innovative. Compared with the total surface of discrete components Bio processor is only about one-quarter of their total size. Thanks ideal for use in small devices ubieralnych, offering too many options for the design of new solutions.
Until recently the ability to monitor the heart rhythm was very attractive feature. Meanwhile today the devices ubieralnych expected ability to measure various parameters related to the condition of the body. In response to these expectations Samsung has developed the Bio processor in such a way as to combine five AFE, including bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), photoplethysmography (PPG), electrocardiogram (ECG) and measurement of skin temperature and galvanic skin-response (GSR). And all of this in a single solution in the form of a chip, respectively, allowing the measurement of fat and skeletal muscle mass, frequency of contractions and the heart rate, skin temperature and the level of the voltage. Use of a combination of the input data about the shape can be considered in addition to the various new use cases.
faster product development and better understanding of the new Organic Processor Samsung will be possible by providing reference platforms for ubieralnych devices that allow you to show different cases of use of the solution. Its potential is seen as an example of devices reference for such a small wraps and pads on hand to provide the ability to measure various indicators related to the condition of the body.
