ROHM Sensor Evaluation Kit

ROHM's SensorShield-EVK-001 sensor evaluation kit is compatible with open platforms such as Arduino Uno and mbed.
The sensor shield enables easy evaluation of the 8 onboard high-performance sensors, making it ideal for verifying sensor operation, initial set development, and as a learning/training tool.
This site allows users to download sensor datasheets, manuals, and sample software.

Sensor Kit Details

Integrated Modules

  • Accelerometer

    Kionix offers a variety of MEMS accelerometers and combo mag-gyro sensors suitable for a wide variety of applications. Features include class-leading performance, ultra-low power consumption, strong impact resistance, and superior temperature characteristics. Products with built-in state machines are also offered that allow for easy programming by the customer.

  • Barometric Pressure Sensor

    ROHM's piezo resistive type barometric pressure sensor enables easy high accuracy measurement utilizing temperature compensation based on ROHM's original algorithm that covers a wide temperature range.

  • Geomagnetic Sensor

    The BM1422GMZ incorporates a control IC together with an MI sensor capable of detecting magnetic fields in 3 directions into a compact package. The MI sensor features significantly less power consumption than conventional models as well as lower noise, making it ideal not only for eCompass applications, but also sets requiring a greater degree of accuracy.

  • Ambient Light Sensor and Proximity Sensor Modules

    ROHM's 3-in-1 Ambient Light Sensor and Proximity Sensor Modules integrates an infrared LED, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor into a single package, improving screen visibility while reducing set power consumption.

  • Color Sensor

    ROHM's color sensor utilizes proprietary infrared removal technology and calculation method to deliver industry-leading IR removal characteristics. This reduces the effects of IR by over 10x compared with conventional products, making it possible to accurately detect the brightness and color temperature - even under dark (low transmittance) optical windows.

  • Hall Effect Sensor

    ROHM's bipolar type Hall Sensor outputs ON (Active Low) upon detection of a magnetic field, regardless of polarity (N/S pole). This eliminates the need for magnet management (i.e. marking), allowing virtually any magnet to be used. ROHM also offers bipolar detection Hall ICs with polarity discrimination featuring 2 outputs (N/S pole) capable of determining the polarity.

  • Temperature Sensor

    ROHM temperature ICs integrate a temperature detection element, constant current circuit, and high-accuracy reference power supply voltage in a single chip. As a result, cumbersome circuit design is no longer necessary, making them ideal for electronic devices requiring temperature detection, such as mobile phones, tablets, PCs, LCD TVs, and gaming equipment.

  • UV Sensor

    LAPIS Semiconductor developed a silicon-based sensor IC capable of detecting UV rays utilizing original SOI (Silicon On Insulator) technology.

Sensor Shield

  • Sensor Shield

    The shield, which is attached to an Arduino/Lazurite platform, allows different sensor boards to be connected.
