Kyma Joins NC State University Center for Advanced Sensor Technologies

Kyma Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced materials solutions that promote safety and energy efficiency, today announced their participation in the NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC) for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST).

The ASSIST Center is developing nano-enabled energy harvesting, energy storage, nanodevices and sensors to create innovative battery-free, body-powered, and wearable health monitoring systems. It is a multi-organizational center led by North Carolina State University (NCSU).

The Center Director is Dr. Veena Misra and the Deputy Director is Dr. John Muth, a long time collaboration partner of Kyma's. Both Misra and Muth are professors in NCSU’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

Kyma began its pursuit of a suite of sensor products two years ago when they partnered with Duke University Professor April Brown in novel chemical sensor development. In the coming weeks, Kyma plans to announce a new electromagnetic sensor product which will be made and plans a related new product announcement in the coming weeks.

“Joining the ASSIST Center is an exciting opportunity for Kyma,” noted Keith Evans, Kyma’s president and CEO. “We recently added advanced sensors to our product roadmap and the ASSIST Center represents a fantastic resource to help us in low power sensor technology development. We also believe that our collaboration with Duke University in chemical sensor technology and our soon to be announced move into electromagnetic sensor technology could prove useful to the ASSIST program as well.”
