Module Makes IoT Sensing Accessible With MS IoT Plug and Play

(STMicroelectronics)

STMicroelectronics’ SensorTile.box promises to help everyone from discover the power of IoT and quickly understand how they can easily collect and send sensor information to the cloud. The module is Microsoft IoT Plug and Play compatible and connects easily with Bluetooth Low Energy to a smartphone, allowing users to watch the sensors function as a pedometer, asset tracker, environmental monitor, or as other instruments. For more experienced designers, SensorTile.box provides developer and expert modes that help build sophisticated applications using a graphical wizard or by writing custom embedded code.

SensorTile.box serves a wide range of sensing, tracking, and monitoring use cases and is delivered ready to use with a 500mAh lithium battery and 8GB microSD card already fitted. The on-board sensors leverage ST’s broad portfolio of proven high-performance MEMS devices and are managed using an ultra-low-power STM32L4R9 microcontroller. They include:

  • STTS751 high-accuracy temperature sensor
  • LSM6DSOX low-power 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) with Machine Learning Core (MLC)
  • LIS3DHH and LIS2DW12 3-axis accelerometers
  • LIS2MDL magnetometer
  • LPS22HH pressure sensor/altimeter
  • MP23ABS1 analog microphone
  • HTS221 humidity sensor

In addition to pedometer, asset-tracking, and environmental-monitoring applications, beginners can also explore vibration monitoring, data recording, inclinometer/level-sensing, digital compass, and baby-monitoring applications. SensorTile.box contains ST MEMS devices for motion, context, and environmental sensing housed in a 57 mm x 38 mm x 20 mm IP54 plastic container and is expected to be available from the beginning of June. For more details, peruse the SensorTile.box datasheet.
