World-leading research and development center for nano-electronics and digital technology, imec, and Holst Centre (established by imec and TNO), today announced a new sensor hub integrated as a system-on-chip (SoC) intended for a broad range of wearable health devices and applications. The SoC combines an unprecedented number of biomedical analog interfaces into a single chip, on-board digital signal processing, high fidelity operation, and multi-day monitoring capability with a single battery.  

Thanks to its small form factor, the SoC can be easily integrated in new innovative designs enabling maximum user comfort. This new SoC is an enabler towards the transformation of today’s mainly curative approach to healthcare to one that is preventative, predictive and personalized.

The biomedical analog interfaces include three ECG channels, photo-plethysmography (PPG), galvanic skin response (GSR), two multi-frequency bio-impedance (BIO-Z) channels to support new applications such as impedance-tomography, body fluid analysis and stroke volume measurements, and three reconfigurable channels.
