Samsung delivered more info on the Bio-Processor it unveiled a while back. The chip aims to create health-tracking wearables both more capable and smaller.

The Samsung Bio-Processor integrates analog front ends, a digital signal processor, a power management circuit, a microcontroller and eFlash. This means it can do all the necessary processing itself, without external components (other than the sensors). If discrete components are used for the same functionality, they will hold up four times as much space.

The chip can measure skeletal muscle mass, body fat, heart rate and rhythm, skin temperature and stress level. Combining these individual measurements can enable recent utilize cases for health tracking apps.

Samsung has prepared a wrist band, board and patch reference designs and says that the chip will hit mass production soon. You can expect wearables with the Bio-Processor to be available in the first half of 2016.
