Mouser adds MikroElektronika’s Heart Rate board for biometric design

Biometrics can be added to designs using MikroElektronika’s Heart Rate 4 click board. The board is now available from distributor, Mouser.

The Heart Rate 4 click board is one of the latest health-focused click boards from MikroElektronika. It measures the oxygen saturation in a person’s blood through pulse oximetry.

The MikroElektronika Heart Rate 4 click board incorporates the Maxim MAX30101 pulse oximeter and heart rate sensor. The tiny, low-power MAX30101 includes internal light emitting diodes (LEDs) and photo-detectors with ambient light rejection and a programmable sample rate and LED current. The MAX30101 also offers a proximity function to save power and reduce visible light emission when the device is away from skin contact.

The Heart Rate 4 click board can run on either 3.3 or 5.0V power supplies and communicates with the target microcontroller over an I2C interface, with additional functionality provided by INT pin on the mikroBUS line. The board is compatible with a variety of development platforms and shields, including MikroElektronika Clicker 2 development boards and Microchip Curiosity development boards.

MikroElektronika produces a range of development tools and compilers for various microcontroller families. The company designs and manufactures complete solutions for PIC, dsPIC30/33, PIC24, PIC32, AVR, 8051, PSoC, as well as TIVA and STM32 ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers.

Mouser claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Mouser Electronics’ website is continually updated and offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.
