Biosignal Chip Biomedical-Lab-on-Chip for Multiple Biosignals
Medtech and digital health company Onera Health announced the introduction of its first Onera Biomedical-Lab-on-Chip, an ultra-low-power biosignal sensor hub for wearable health.
Onera Health has introduced the Onera Biomedical-Lab-on-Chip. The biomedical sensor system-on-chip acquires and processes multiple biosignals and is designed for a broad range of wearable health applications and devices, offering many solutions and opportunities for innovation in the medical, wellness and fitness space.
The Dutch-American company leveraged from its deep tech roots and close partnership with Imec, a research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, with the development of the ultra-low-power biosignal chip.
The chip is a multi-channel sensor readout system with integrated data processing, power management, and interfacing features. It offers a wide range of on-chip biomedical sensor readouts, including ten readouts for ExG, covering EEG, ECG, EMG, and EOG, 2 bioimpedance readouts, and two readouts for photoplethysmography. The data can be processed by on-chip digital filters and accelerators, supported by a powerful ARM Cortex M4f. The chip features several standard wired interfaces such as UART, SPI, I2C, and I2S. It fully operates on a single power source which can be anything between 0.8 and 3.6 V, since power management is also integrated on-chip. In addition, a large amount of SRAM and embedded Flash is available, supporting the large number of data streams with accurate data-synchronization as an essential feature.
