To determine blood oxygen (arterial blood oxygen saturation (SpO2)) and pulse rate, many biosensors use the reflectance of red and infrared (and sometimes green) light. Based on photoplethysmography (PPG), an optical technique that measures blood volume variations, dual-wavelength PPG pulse oximeters noninvasively measure/calculate the arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2). An oximeter transmits radiation at a known […]
Don’t push on that icon and other 3G sunset issues
Have you ever had to transition someone from a flip phone to a smartphone? Things you instinctively know how to do become obstacles. Fortunately, you can talk to a smartphone rather than just talking through it. With 3G heading into sunset, some cellphone users will need to upgrade to LTE or 5G before their phones…

Video Teardown: Inside the Apple watch sport model
Though most of the Apple watch electronics are inaccessible because they sit within a 26 by 28-mm motherboard that’s overmolded with a special packaging compound, we were still able to discern a number of interesting features on the watch, including its use of a taptic engine and a special display light sensor.
