Renesas has a wealth of sensors; however, to use these in a sensible environment, a control MCU is needed as well as an output medium. To enable the sensors to be tested/connected to different MCU families, a common electrical and mechanically stable plug-in interface is needed. The latest MCU evaluation kits are being equipped with an Arduino Shield interface, which is a standardized interface. A set of widely used sensors have been integrated in this Arduino Shield, which all share the I2C control interface – on different addresses.
Renesas' Lab on the Cloud is an online environment where Renesas solutions, including popular evaluation boards, winning combinations and software, are hosted in a remote lab that customers access and test online.
This Sensor Board with Arduino Shield™ Interface is used on interface-equipped microcontroller reference boards. Supported sensors are:
Renesas' complementary product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing + Connectivity work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. Our product experts have developed "Winning Combinations," compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
