Development and demo platform for Silicon Labs' sensors
Design & Manufacture
Silicon Labs' Sensor-Puck development tool provides a convenient demo
platform for Silicon Labs' Si114x optical sensors and Si701x/2x relative
humidity and temperature sensors.
The coin-cell battery operated SENSOR-PUCK is controlled by an EFM32
energy-friendly MCU. A Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module is used to
communicate sensor data to iOS or Android smartphones with the downloadable
Sensor-Puck app. Users can place a fingertip over the Si1147 sensor to
measure heart rate. Environmental sensing of UV Index, ambient light,
relative humidity, and temperature is also provided. For power management,
the board features a Touchstone TS3310 boost DC-DC converter.
