Apple is looking at making its own custom processor that could interpret health information via sensors deep inside Apple devices.

The sensors are linked to Apple’s strategy of building custom chips on demand, reflecting a greater level of vertical integration than other technology companies. Building custom chips for narrow functions can help Apple add new features and improve efficiency of its hardware while protecting its intellectual assets.

Apple’s Health Sensing hardware team say they are looking for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) architects to help develop ASICs for new sensors and sensing systems for future Apple products.

It’s not clear what the sensors would measure, but the team wants engineers who can help develop health and fitness sensors.

Apple already designs various chips and sensors for iPhones, iPads, AirPods and Apple Watch.
