Samsung integrates hardware for biometric sensors in SOC for wearables




Samsung has put the chips required for processing the input from sensors on a SOC for wearables. Thus, for example, the skin temperature and perspiration are measured. Thus, the SOC should provide a way to integrate such sensors in wearables.

In addition to the skin sweat and temperature sensors, there is also hardware exist for the processing of signals from a BIA for the measurement of fat, PPG, inter alia, for the tracking of the respiration and a heart ECG meter.

The SOC has a Cortex-M4 processor on board, a low-power processor designed for devices requiring low processing power. The memory of the soc is 256KB, 512KB flash memory built-in, according to the specs of the S3FBP5A. Samsung gives the soc the marketing name Bio-Processor and he will show next include the Exynos line of mobile socs.

Because the soc the hardware onboard to various sensors to process the input, could develop wearables manufacturers with less effort these sensors. The mass production of the soc has already started. The first products based on the S3FBP5A should appear in the first half of next year.
