ams AG - global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog ICs (integrated circuits)

AS7000 Biosensor

Optical module with LEDs, integrated IC, analog frontend and Cortex-M0 processor


The AS7000 solution contains the AS7000 module including the LEDs, photo-sensor, analog front end (AFE) and controller as well as application software required to implement an accurate optical HRM/HRV fitness band product.

The module also enables skin temperature and skin resistivity measurements by providing interfaces to external sensors.

The AS7000’s low-power design is particularly well suited to application in fitness bands, smart watches and sports watches, in which board space is limited and in which users look for extended, multi-day intervals between battery recharges.
