Valencell’s wearable and hearable expertise translates to ST’s products, technologies, and solutions

Raleigh, N.C, September 5, 2017 – Valencell, the leading innovator in wearable and hearable biometric sensor technology, announces that it has joined the STMicroelectronics Partner Program to produce its powerful biometric sensor platform for wearables and IoT at a faster rate, reducing customer time-to-market.

Valencell has collaborated with STMicroelectronics to create a highly accurate and scalable development kit for biometric wearables, integrating Valencell’s BenchmarkTM sensor system and the ST SensorTile. The SensorTile packs a powerful STM32L4 microcontroller, a Bluetooth® Low Energy chipset, a wide spectrum of high-accuracy motion and environmental MEMS sensors, and a digital MEMS microphone onto a tiny 13.5mm x 13.5mm board. Integrating ST’s SensorTile development kit with Valencell’s Benchmark sensor technology simplifies the prototyping, evaluation, and development of innovative wearable and IoT solutions by delivering a complete Valencell PerformTek® technology package, ready for immediate integration and delivery into wearable devices.

The collaboration with ST expands on previous work that incorporated the company’s STM32 MCUs and sensors into Valencell’s Benchmark sensor system. The ST Partner Program allowed this development kit to be created at a faster rate, shortening the time to market and lengthening the sales window.

“We’re thrilled to join the ST Partner Program, lend our expertise to like-minded individuals, and learn from others,” said Steven LeBoeuf, President & Co-Founder, Valencell Inc. “ST has been a valuable partner in our Benchmark sensor system, and they’ve created a model and network of designers and engineers that accelerates that time to market.”

“The new ST Partner Program helps customers’ design teams access extra skills and resources to aid engineering development and shorten time-to-market for new products,” said Alessandro Maloberti, Partner Ecosystem Director, STMicroelectronics. “By selecting, qualifying, and certifying our program partners, we are taking yet another major step in helping customers accelerate design and development, and ship to market the most robust and efficient products and services.”
