SensorShield-EVK-003 aids set development for IoT

With the SensorShield-EVK-003, Rohm is offering a new sensor shield expansion board equipped with eight sensor boards designed for use with existing open platform MCU boards, such as Arduino and mbed.

The SensorShield-EVK-003 is the latest sensor evaluation kit offered by Rohm. The updated kit bundles eight sensor boards with various Rohm sensors, such as accelerometer, barometric pressure, geomagnetic, optical and heart rate sensors, along with a shield board for connecting to open platforms.

Using the SensorShield-EVK-003 aids configuration of a sensor environment by incorporating software and connecting to Arduino Uno or to other popular MCU boards. This not only permits immediate verification of sensor operation, but also simplifies sensor device design, says the company. The kit reduces the development load significantly while promoting the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) market.

The SensorShield-EVK-003, the sensor shield and sensor evaluation boards can be bought separately through the online distributors.

In addition, all the necessary documents and materials for operating the sensor kit can be downloaded from the Rohm’s website.

A significant amount of development effort along with hardware and software expertise is required when creating products for the expanding IoT environment. Easy evaluation can be complicated owing to the fact that development and mounting environments are inherently different for each IoT device.

In response to these demands, Rohm has started to offer open source platform tools such as the Lazurite series that helps simplify IoT prototyping and initial set development.
