Mouser ships TE Connectivity’s Grove boards for sensor design Andy Pratt September 8, 2017 Design Sources / Software, Sensors Distributor Mouser Electronics is now stocking Measurement Specialties Grove system development boards from TE Connectivity. These small, plug-and-play development boards allow designers to incorporate TE’s environmental sensors with the Seeed Grove prototyping system, which features standardised four-pin connectors with an I²C communication interface. The boards can be used to create designs for wearable and miniature devices, health monitoring, fitness, air quality, aerospace, and battery-powered applications, says Mouser. The Measurement Specialties Grove system development boards are available from Mouser Electronics in five options for sensing a combination of pressure, humidity, and temperature. The HTU21D board includes a fully calibrated humidity and temperature sensor that measures 0 to 100 per cent relative humidity (RH) and -40 to +125 degrees C. The sensor also features selectable resolution, low battery detection, checksum capability, and a low-power standby mode for power-sensitive applications. The MS5637 board is a self-contained pressure and temperature sensor specified for 300 to 1,200 mbar and -40 to +85 degrees C. The MS8607 board senses RH (0 to 100 per cent) and pressure (300 to 1,200 mbar) and adds temperature sensing in a range of -40 to +125 degrees C. The board also features selectable resolution for pressure, humidity, and temperature sensing. There are two Grove system boards for dedicated temperature sensing. The TSYS01 board provides accuracy down to 0.1 degree in the minus five to +50 degrees C range, and 0.5 degrees in the -40 to +125 degrees C range. The TSYS02D board provides accuracy of 0.2 degrees C in the minus five to +50 degrees C range, 0.5 degrees in the -20 to +100 degrees C range, and 1.0 degree in the -40 to +125 degrees C range. Both the TSYS01 and TSYS02D offer a low-power standby mode for power- sensitive applications.
