Valencell, which sells performance biometric data sensor technology, and STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader, have launched a new, highly accurate and scalable development kit for biometric wearables.

Raleigh-based Valencellsays 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.

Tony Keirouz, vice president Marketing and Applications, Microcontrollers, Security, and Internet of Things, STMicroelectronics said in a statement that “Combined, SensorTile and Benchmark enable wearable makers to quickly and easily develop the perfect product for any application that integrates highly accurate biometrics.”

“Working with ST has allowed us to bring together the best of all sensors required to support the most advanced wearable use cases through our groundbreaking Benchmark sensor system,” said Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, president and co-founder of Valencell. “What attracted us to the SensorTile was the flexibility of the platform and the ultra-low power consumption, which will enable our customers to create highly-accurate and powerful wearables and hearables in any form factor.”

Valencell is on a roll and has seen triple digit growth for three years running in the hot heath and fitness and sports wearables markets where it supplies its advanced sensor tech to manufacturers.
