The MAXREFDES100# is Maxim’s health sensor (hSensor) platform that helps customers test and evaluate innovative medical and high-end fitness solutions faster and easier. Fitness and clinical applications that can be evaluated using this platform include chest-based applications with heart-rate (HR) and electrocardiography (ECG), smart watches and headphones with optical HR, arrhythmia detection, and O2 measurement.
The MAXREFDES100# platform also supports the measurement of motion, precision skin temperature, and a variety of biopotential measurements including ECG, electromyography (EMG), and electroencephalography (EEG). In addition, the hSensor platform supports a variety of reflective photo plethysmography measurements including pulse oximetry and HR detection at three wavelengths: 880 nm (infrared (IR)), 660 nm (red), and 537 nm (green).
The platform supports GUI applications on Windows®-based PCs and Android®-based devices for simple data collection and visualization. Both direct USB connection (through a USB Type-C™ connector) and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) radio are supported for configuration and data collections. A direct-to-Flash memory mode is supported for data collection. Flash memory read using a USB connection is also implemented.
