New Scalable Biometric Sensor Platform for Wearables and the IoT

Valencell and STMicroelectronics recently launched a new development kit for biometric wearables. Featuring STMicro’s compact SensorTile turnkey multi-sensor module and Valencell’s Benchmark biometric sensor system, the platform offers designers a scalable solution for designers building biometric hearables and wearables.

The SensorTile IoT module’s specs and features:

  • 13.5 mm × 13.5 mm
  • STM32L4 microcontroller
  • Bluetooth Low Energy chipset
  • a wide spectrum of MEMS sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure, and temperature sensor)
  • Digital MEMS microphone

Valencell’s Benchmark sensor system’s specs and features:

  • PerformTek processor communicates with host processor using a simple UART or I2C interface protocol
  • Acquires heart rate, VO2, and calorie data
  • Standard flex connector interface
