The SHT31 Smart Gadget development kit from Sensirion is now being shipped by Mouser Electronics. 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 humidity and temperature sensors.
The Smart Gadget shows relative humidity and temperature values on the display, and can also communicate wirelessly with a Bluetooth Smart capable device such as a smartphone or tablet.
The reference design and development kit that helps developers to begin projects with an environmental sensor, Bluetooth connectivity, and corresponding apps. The Smart Gadget includes an onboard SHT31 humidity and temperature sensor, LCD driver and display, and Bluetooth module.
The LCD screen displays relative humidity (±2 percent accuracy), dew point, and temperature in Celsius (accurate to 0.3 degrees) or Fahrenheit (accurate to 0.5 degrees).
The Smart Gadget supports two debug interfaces as well as I2C and SPI protocols. Developers can also take advantage of the device’s complete hardware, firmware, and software resources. For further connectivity, developers can use the available apps for both iOS and Android devices.
The Sensirion SHT3x series humidity and temperature sensors, also available from Mouser Electronics, are based on Sensirion's patented CMOSens technology, which combines the environmental sensor and processing electronics on a single chip, resulting in higher system integration, as well as accurate measurements with long term stability over the sensor's operating conditions.
