Add Proximity Detection and Measurement to Your Project
August 21, 2016
ST Microelectronics is a pioneer in distance measurement, leaving behind the days of assumed color targets and reflectivity to get a high-resolution and high-precision distance measurement from Time-of-Flight sensor technology. The VL6180X measures absolute distance up to 100mm with 1mm resolution and our carrier board lets you connect your 3V to 5V microcontroller to this awesome little chip. Check out more details on the VL6180X SEN-36001 Product Page
Measure Temperature and Humidity With Extreme Precision
August 15, 2016
Texas Instruments has stepped up the precision temperature and humidity sensing game with their latest offering, the HDC1080. More specifically, this IC provides +/- 3% accuracy up to 20% RH, +/- 2% accuracy from 20% to 60% RH, and +/- 4% accuracy above 60% RH. In short, this new IC puts virtually all previous generation humidity sensors to shame, as most weren't even rated at the humidity extremes. Check out the HDC1080 here
