## Commercial example
A quick teardown of a ~$20 500BL from Walgreens revealed no integrated photonics package or ASIC; instead, the device had a bi-color IR/red LED on one side and a PCB with a decent sized photodiode on the other, paired with an [SGM8634](www.sg-micro.com/uploads/soft/20190626/1561538475.pdf) op-amp and an STM32F100-series 32-bit Arm Cortex M3 microcontroller. The display is a custom multisegment LED device, but the PCB labels suggest an OLED is used for an alternate model.
