Sensors Expo 2018: Arduino Expansion Board Enables Rapid Sensor Configuration

ROHM’s SensorShield-EVK-003 sensor shield (expansion board) is equipped with eight sensor boards (e.g. accelerometer, barometric pressure, geomagnetic, heart rate sensors, etc.) for use with existing open platform MCU boards such as Arduino, and mbed. The updated kit bundles eight individual sensor boards produced by the ROHM Group (including a new optical heart rate sensor) along with a shield board for connecting to open platforms, making it easy to configure a sensor environment by simply incorporating software and connecting to Arduino Uno or other popular MCU board. This enables immediate verification of sensor operation and facilitates the design of sensor devices, significantly reducing development load while promoting the expansion of the IoT market.

 

In addition, the sensor shield and sensor evaluation boards are available for purchase separately. Pricing: $148.80/kit. Documents and materials necessary for operating the SensorShield-EVK-003 sensor kit are available for download.
