  • Patent number: 11399748
    Abstract: An analyte monitor includes a sensor, a sensor control unit, and a display unit. The sensor has, for example, a substrate, a recessed channel formed in the substrate, and conductive material disposed in the recessed channel to form a working electrode. The sensor control unit typically has a housing adapted for placement on skin and is adapted to receive a portion of an electrochemical sensor. The sensor control unit also includes two or more conductive contacts disposed on the housing and configured for coupling to two or more contact pads on the sensor. A transmitter is disposed in the housing and coupled to the plurality of conductive contacts for transmitting data obtained using the sensor. The display unit has a receiver for receiving data transmitted by the transmitter of the sensor control unit and a display coupled to the receiver for displaying an indication of a level of an analyte.

  • Patent number: 11179069
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to systems and methods for processing, transmitting, and displaying data received from continuous analyte sensor, such as a glucose sensor. In some embodiments, the continuous analyte sensor system comprises a sensor electronics module that includes power saving features. One feature includes a low power measurement circuit that can be switched between a measurement mode and a low power mode, in which charging circuitry continues to apply power to electrodes of a sensor during the low power mode. In addition, the sensor electronics module can be switched between in a low power storage mode higher power operational mode via a switch. The switch can include a reed switch or optical switch, for example. A validation routine can also be implemented to ensure an interrupt signal sent from the switch is valid.

  • Publication number: 20210085223
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for providing more accurate and reliable sensor data and for detecting sensor failures. Two or more electrodes can be used to generate data, and the data can be subsequently compared by a processing module. Alternatively, one sensor can be used, and the data processed by two parallel algorithms to provide redundancy. Sensor performance, including sensor failures, can be identified. The user or system can then respond appropriately to the information related to sensor performance or failure.
