Rust MAX3010x High-Sensitivity Pulse Oximeter and Heart-Rate Sensor for Wearable Health Driver

crates.io Docs Build Status Coverage Status Maintenance Intention

This is a platform agnostic Rust driver for the MAX3010x high-sensitivity pulse oximeter and heart-rate sensor for wearable health, based on the embedded-hal traits.

This driver allows you to:

  • Get the number of samples available on the FIFO. See get_available_sample_count().
  • Get the number of samples lost from the FIFO. See get_overflow_sample_count().
  • Read samples from the FIFO. See read_fifo().
  • Perform a temperature measurement. See read_temperature().
  • Change into heart-rate, oximeter or multi-LED modes. See into_multi_led().
  • Set the sample averaging. See set_sample_averaging().
  • Set the LED pulse amplitude. See set_pulse_amplitude().
  • Set the LED pulse width. See set_pulse_width().
  • Set the sampling rate. See set_sampling_rate().
  • Set the ADC range. See set_adc_range().
  • Set the LED time slots in multi-LED mode. set_led_time_slots().
  • Enable/disable the FIFO rollover. See enable_fifo_rollover().
  • Clear the FIFO. See clear_fifo().
  • Wake-up and shutdown the device. See shutdown().
  • Perform a software reset. See reset().
  • Get the device part and revision id. See get_part_id().
  • Interrupts:
    • Read the status of all interrupts. See read_interrupt_status().
    • Set FIFO-almost-full level interrupt. See set_fifo_almost_full_level_interrupt().
    • Enable/disable the FIFO-almost-full interrupt. See enable_fifo_almost_full_interrupt().
    • Enable/disable the ambient-light-cancellation overflow interrupt. See enable_alc_overflow_interrupt().
    • Enable/disable the temperature-ready interrupt. See enable_temperature_ready_interrupt().
    • Enable/disable the new-FIFO-data-ready interrupt. See enable_new_fifo_data_ready_interrupt().

The device

The MAX30102 is an integrated pulse oximetry and heart-rate monitor module. It includes internal LEDs, photodetectors, optical elements, and low-noise electronics with ambient light rejection. The MAX30102 provides a complete system solution to ease the design-in process for mobile and wearable devices.

The MAX30102 operates on a single 1.8V power supply and a separate 3.3V power supply for the internal LEDs. Communication is through a standard I2C-compatible interface. The module can be shut down through software with zero standby current, allowing the power rails to remain powered at all times.


This driver should be compatible at least with the devices: MAX30102.


Please find additional examples using hardware in this repository: driver-examples

extern crate linux_embedded_hal as hal;
extern crate max3010x;
use max3010x::{Max3010x, Led, SampleAveraging};

fn main() {
  let dev = hal::I2cdev::new("/dev/i2c-1").unwrap();

  let mut sensor = Max3010x::new_max30102(dev);
  let mut sensor = sensor.into_heart_rate().unwrap();
  sensor.set_pulse_amplitude(Led::All, 15).unwrap();

  let mut data = [0; 3];
  let samples_read = sensor.read_fifo(&mut data).unwrap();

  // get the I2C device back
  let dev = max30102.destroy();


  • Compatibility with MAX30102
  • Compatibility with MAX30101
  • Compatibility with MAX30105
