Utilizing Valencell Technology in Your Devices

Working with Valencell means we partner with you at every step to integrate Valencell technology into your wearable designs. Our ability to help you get a feature-rich biometric wearable into market is unmatched in the industry.

Benchmark® Sensor Systems

Benchmark Sensor Systems incorporate all Valencell PerformTek® biometric sensor technology in a pre-packaged system for immediate integration in wearables of all kinds.

Valencell Benchmark® Sensor Systems

Valencell Benchmark Sensor Systems are complete biometric sensor systems that include all the hardware, optomechanical design, firmware and algorithms for highly accurate biometrics in wearables of all shapes and sizes. Benchmark Sensor Systems are ready to design into your wearable device today. Benchmark Sensor Systems mitigate schedule and technical risk associated with validating the biometric technology, because they incorporate all the best Valencell has to offer in a ready-to-integrate module.

Valencell Benchmark Sensor Systems are available in two versions:

Benchmark Wearable (BW)
for biometric wrist/arm wearables
Data sheets available for:
BW1.5, BW4.0
Benchmark Ear (BE)
for biometric earbud hearables
Data sheets available for:

*Additional documentation is available by request, including application notes, communications protocols, design examples, and more. 

  • Emitter/detector sensor electronics
  • State-of-the-art active signal characterization to remove noise from optical signals during heavy activity and challenging environments
  • Low-power accelerometer to track activity
  • Light-guiding optomechanics to provide excellent optical coupling to the user’s skin

Valencell offers a menu of product planning and engineering support services for all our Benchmark customers. Contact us if you need more information.

The integrated PerformTek® processor converts sensor data into clinically-validated biometric measurements and assessments such as:

  • Continuous Heart Rate, resting heart rate, heart rate response and recovery
  • R-R interval (RRi) for heart rate variability (HRV) and other metrics
  • Multi-wavelength outputs for SpO2
  • Cardiac efficiency
  • Step counting
  • Running cadence, distance, and speed
  • Energy expenditure / calories burned
  • And many more

The PerformTek® processor contained in Benchmark communicates with your host processor using a simple UART or I2C interface protocol. Benchmark is 100% tested for optical and sensor performance at the factory using proprietary optical testing systems developed by Valencell.
