Open Source Sensor Hardware

Open Hardware Architecture

  • Designed and developed within scientific projects
  • Focus on reliable hardware components as well as accurate sensors
  • Schematics, layout and production data created in Open Source EDA tool
  • Sample code for bring-up and demo applications
  • Supported by comprehensive documentation

Technology / Sensors / Network

  • Low-power but nevertheless performant microcontroller platform
  • Wide range of supported sensor interfaces (e.g. I2C, SPI, RS485, analog)
  • Set of supported sensors easily extendable
  • Multiple supported communication technologies including LPWAN (LoRaWAN)
  • Suitable for isolated sensors as well as meshed and cloud solutions
  • Support for battery operation including charging and energy harvesting electronics
