The amount of light collected is crucial for low-power applications of pulse oximetry. In this work a novel ring-shaped backside photodiode has been developed for a wearable reflectance pulse oximeter. The photodiode is proven to work with a dual LED with wavelengths of 660 nm and 940 nm. For the purpose of continuously monitoring vital signs of a human, a temperature sensor is integrated onto the chip containing the photodiode. This biomedical multisensor chip is made for integration into "the electronic patch", an autonomous monitoring system for humans.
