  • Publication number: 20190380646
    Abstract: A headwear assembly is disclosed having an oximetry sensor and a circuit assembly configured to measure pulse and oxygen level for a user during exercise and/or physical activity. The oximetry sensor is positioned in a front section of the headwear assembly, proximate to the forehead when worn. Other sensors can also be included with the headwear assembly, such as temperature, blood pressure, and so on. The headwear assembly is configured to securely conform about a user's head when worn, such that the oximetry sensor is positioned and effectively immobilized on the forehead above the eyebrows. The headwear assembly can further provide integrated functionality with an external electronic device, such as a smart mobile phone. The headwear assembly can include a wireless charger for charging a rechargeable battery disposed on the headwear assembly.

  • Publication number: 20050286660
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for determining a dominant frequency contained in a multi-frequency analog signal. An apparatus includes a first matched filter pair and a second a second matched filter pair. Both the first matched filter pair and the second matched filter pair are configured to receive in-phase (I-phase) and quadrature-phase (Q-phase) digital samples of a digitized multi-frequency analog signal. The summed magnitudes of outputs of the first and second matched filter pairs provide an indication of a dominant frequency represented in the digital samples. The first matched filter pair may include first and second matched filters, where the first matched filter includes a multiplier operable to multiply, on a sample-by-sample basis, a sample by a coefficient. A sample comprises an n-bit digital representation of either the I-phase amplitude or the Q-phase ampltude at a given instant. The coefficients are the terms required to complete the matching functions (e.g. 1-bit Walsh coefficients).
