Ultra high performance in light sensing is our expertise

Senbiosys is a spinoff of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). Born in IMT, an institute famous for micro and nano engineering, next to the CSEM, we’ve quickly developed a strong expertise embedded into a startup excelling in ultra-high performance light sensing and ultra-low noise. We have already beaten several world records.

Our vision is to design the next generation of sensors with the highest efficiency and the lowest power consumption.

“We’re building the next generation of light sensors with the highest efficiency and the lowest power consumption”

Senbiosys has developed Senbio1, a new ultra high performance chip that measures efficiently both the Photoplethysmography (PPG) and the Time of Flight (ToF) signals.

Part of senbio1 innovations has been selected for a full presentation and demonstration at ISSCC 2019, the leading conference of the solid state circuits society.

Senbio1 brings the following unique characteristics to the market:

Reduced power consumption

A significantly reduced power consumption, at a level never reached before

All-in one combo chip

A chip that can measure precisely both Heart Rate (HR), Oxygen level (SpO2), ToF as well as ambient light

Precise and reliable PPG signal

A precise and reliable PPG signal, restored with an extremely low noise and a high quantum efficiency

High miniaturization

A high miniaturization through more integration

Precise and reliable ToF signal

A precise and reliable ToF signal, restored with extremely low noise

“Most comprehensive set of functions” in the market of light sensors

Most efficient chip by far for energy consumption

Most precise and most compact combo chip in the market

Senbiosys is a spin-off start-up from
École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Our startup is located in the EPFL Microcity building in Neuchâtel, next to the CSEM.

2018 Senbiosys.
