Osram engineers LED-based sensor for fitness tracking
expanded its portfolio for the optical measurement of pulse rates and blood oxygen levels. The new SFH 7060 LED-based sensor from Osram Opto Semiconductors is designed to measure pulse rates and the oxygen saturation level of blood. It offers excellent signal quality and low energy consumption. The main market segment for this component includes mobile devices such as smart watches and fitness armbands – also known as wearables – for continuously monitoring fitness levels. This integrated optical sensor contains five light emitting diodes with three different wavelengths and one high-sensitivity photodiode.
