Demonstrating sensing technologies around a BLE communication link

February 27th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


ebv-elektronik-143-03-2014EBV Elektronik has announced sensorTAG, a product that demonstrates various sensing technologies around a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) communication link in a small form factor. This new release from EBV is a one-stop-shop with sensorTAG, a battery-powered sensor Hub, and an USB-to-BLE nanoDongle (9 x 17 mm). SensorTAG provides an industry-standard sensor portfolio (STM, Freescale, TI) combined with TI BLE connectivity, and includes EBV system knowledge and support for related software and hardware. A NXP humidity/light sensor is also featured as demonstration device. The sensors chosen by EBV represent a complete offer enabled for low power operation and are either “high-runners” in the industry, or bring innovative and exciting features for the latest applications. The selected products are either MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) including accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, or relative humidity plus light sensor, and thermopile (contactless IR temperature measurement) enabling an important range of physical parameter monitoring.
