New Omron Evaluation Board fast tracks IoT sensor system development

Omron Electronic Components Europe’s Sensor Evaluation Board gives developers working on sensor systems for the IoT a fast track to a ‘proof of concept’ prototype.

Omron Electronic Components Europe has announced a new Sensor Evaluation Board that aims to help developers quickly build IoT sensor system prototypes.

Three separate variants of the 2JCIE-EV01 Sensor Evaluation Board will be available depending on whether customers want to host their prototype on Raspberry Pi, Arduino or Adafruit Feather.

“There are a lot of developers working in this field, and, with the launch of this module, Omron is making their life much easier by eliminating the need to create a hardware and software interface before evaluating a sensor,” explained Gabriele Fulco, European Product Marketing Manager of Omron Electronic Components Europe. “Customers just need to connect the host board, load the software and can be acquiring useable data within an hour.”

The new Sensor Evaluation Board comes equipped with sensors for six popular environmental parameters – temperature, humidity, pressure, light, sound and acceleration. It is supported by data acquisition software and features expansion connectors to interface to Omron and other manufacturers’ sensors.

Its on-board connector allows it to be expanded with the Omron D6T thermal sensor, D6F-PH MEMS differential pressure sensor, B5W-LB optical sensor or B5W-LD air quality / dust sensor. A further connector allows any Qwiic compatible sensor to be connected to the board. The company has supplied code for the required sensor data acquisition program on GitHub.
