Harwin Datamate Coax EETimes Europe Feb 16.qxd: Prototyping & Development boards Temperature and relative humidity readings via Bluetooth 50 Ohm Coax Mouser Electronics is now stocking the SHT31 Smart Gadget development kit from for High-Rel applications Sensirion. The Smart Gadget is a reference design circuit board and development kit that demonstrates the performance and ease-of-use of Sensirion’s SHT3x series High-Reliability Coax connectors for cable-to-board and board-to-board applications. - Single body moulding resists shock and vibration - 2, 4, 6 & 8 positions - Designed for use with RG178 cable - Features locking screws for secure connection - PCB fixings offer mechanical strength - Tested to 100g shock* *test reports available For more information visit www.harwin.com/ datamate-coax humidity and temperature sensors. It shows relative humidity (±2 percent accuracy), dew point, and temperature in Celsius (accurate to 0.3 degrees) or Fahrenheit (accurate to 0.5 degrees), all on a small integrated LCD screen. It can also communicate these values wirelessly with a Bluetooth® Smart capable device, such as a smartphone or tablet. The reference design helps developers begin projects with an environmental sensor, Bluetooth connectivity, and corresponding apps. The Smart Gadget supports two debug interfaces as well as I2C and SPI protocols. Mouser Electronics www.mouser.com Evaluation kit helps digitalize your power supply Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG and Infineon Technologies AG have launched the jointly developed “XMC Digital Power Explorer” evaluation kit, a synchronous step-down converter which can be assembled with two different control cards (XMC1300 - ARM Cortex-M0 MCU and XMC4200 - ARM Cortex-M4F MCU), for developers of analog power supplies and embedded software programmers to enter the world of digital power supply. Developers can compare two performance classes using two different control cards. The high-performance XMC4200 family offers a high-resolution PWM unit (with 150 ps resolution) and intelligent analog comparators with precise slope compensation that can considerably simplify power supply design. The XMC1300 family, on the other hand, is cost-optimized to provide excellent cost effectiveness for simpler power supply applications. Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG www.we-online.com Cloud enabled secure IoT solution kit leverages NXP’s LPC43S67 The LPC43S67 & A70CM Cloud Connectivity Kit offers a high-performance, dualcore ARM Cortex processor along with IC-enabled security and add-on boards affording the designer a range of IoT features like NFC, AES128/192/256 encryption, WiFi connectivity, Ethernet, accelerometer, gyroscope, temperature sensor, and an LCD. It is a great platform for anyone experimenting with IoT or cloud-backed mobile applications. Beyond the target hardware, which includes the LPCXpresso43S67 board with LPC43S67 dual-core (M4F and M0+) MCU and NXP A7001CM Secure Element, NTAG NDC plug-in card, LPC General Purpose Shield (hosting an accelerometer, gyroscope, temperature sensor, joystick and LCD), IEEE 802.11b/g SD card, this kit is supported by NXP’s LPCXpresso IDE and ZentriOS – a complete connected product operating system available as a licensable software solution. The Zentri SDK, can be easily combined with the rich editing and debugging capabilities of the LPCXpresso IDE by installation of a free plugin. Debugging is simplified by LPCXpresso43S67’s on-board Link2 probe, which provides full source code debugging capability without the need for any additional hardware.
