This TinyShield features four of our popular TinyShield Sensors on a single board!
9-Axis IMU: This sensor lets you measure 9 degrees of freedom (9DOF) with your TinyDuino and features the ST LSM9DS1 - a system-in-package featuring a 3D digital linear acceleration sensor, a 3D digital angular rate sensor, and a 3D digital magnetic sensor.
The LSM9DS1 has a linear acceleration full scale of ±2g/±4g/±8/±16 g, a magnetic field full scale of ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss and an angular rate of ±245/±500/±2000 dps.
Temperature/Humidity: This sensor lets you measure temperature and humidity with the TinyDuino. Based around the Silicon Labs Si7020-A10 sensor, this allows for accurate temperature measurement (+- 0.4C) and precision relative humidity readings.
Barometric Pressure: This sensor allows you to measure barometric pressure (and determine altitude) and temperature with your TinyDuino. Based around the Bosch BMP280 sensor, this allows you to measure barometric pressure with a +/- 1hPa absolute accuracy, and temperature with a +/- 1.0C accuracy.
Ambient Light: This sensor features a TAOS TSL2572 Ambient Light Sensor, that approximates human eye response to light intensity under a variety of lighting conditions and through a variety of attenuation materials. Accurate ALS measurements are the result of TAOS’ patented dual-diode technology and the UV rejection filter incorporated in the package. In addition, the operating range is extended to 60,000 lux in sunlight when the low-gain mode is used.
This TinyShield uses I2C communication and incorporates level shifters and a local power supply to ensure proper and safe operation over the entire TinyDuino operating voltage range up to 5V.
