STMicroelectronics, Valencell launch biometric sensor platform for wearables, IoT

Valencell and semiconductor firm STMicroelectronics have launched a highly accurate and scalable development kit for biometric wearables. The kit includes ST’s compact SensorTileturnkey multi-sensor module integrated with Valencell’s Benchmark biometric sensor system, which deliver a set of sensors to support the most advanced wearable use cases. “Valencell’s Benchmark solution leverages the high accuracy of ST’s MEMS sensor technology along with SensorTile’s miniature form factor, flexibility, and STM32 open development environment-based ecosystem,” said Tony Keirouz, vice president of marketing and applications

Valencell brings its biometric sensor technology to Digital Health Technology Expo

Valencell was among a select group of technology and consumer electronics companies invited to exhibit at last week’s Digital Health Technology Expo, sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and held at the FDA’s headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Valencell demonstrated its biometric sensor technology and its ability to accurately measure RR-interval in wearable devices worn in numerous form-factors. The Expo also featured presentations from the CTA, FDA, the U.S. Department of
