Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Measurement Specialties Grove system development boards from TE Connectivity. These small, plug-and-play development boards let designers incorporate TE’s environmental sensors with the Seeed Grove prototyping system. This system has standardized four-pin connectors with an I²C communication interface. The easy to use boards are ideal for creating designs for wearable and miniature devices, health monitoring, fitness, air quality, aerospace and battery-powered applications.

TE’s Measurement Specialties Grove system development boards come in five options for sensing a combination of pressure, humidity and temperature. The HTU21D board has a fully calibrated humidity and a temperature sensor that measures 0 to 100 percent relative humidity (RH) and -40° C to 125° C. The sensor has a selectable resolution, low battery detection, checksum capability and low-power standby mode for power-sensitive applications. The MS5637 board is a self-contained pressure and temperature sensor that is specified for 300 to 1,200 mbar and -40° C to 85° C. The MS8607 board senses RH and pressure, and adds temperature sensing in a range of -40° C to 125° C. The board also has selectable resolution for pressure, humidity and temperature sensing.

For temperature sensing, TE offers two Grove system boards. The TSYS01 board has an accuracy of down to 0.1 degrees in the -5° C to 50° C range, and 0.5 degrees in the full -40° C to 125° C range. The TSYS01 and the TSYS02D have low-power standby mode for power-sensitive applications.
