Description

Sensor Hub BoosterPack

The Texas Instruments Sensor Hub BoosterPack (BOOSTXL-SENSHUB) is an add-on board designed to fit the Tiva™ C Series TM4C123GXL LaunchPad along with all of TI’s MCU LaunchPads. The Sensor Hub BoosterPack is a Tiva platform for evaluating the use of ARM® Cortex™-M4-based TM4C devices in sensor fusion applications, demonstrating the mathematical and algorithm computation features of the M4 architecture.

Features

  1. Seven on-board sensor functions, including:
    • InvenSense MPU-9150: 9-axis MEMS motion tracking
      3-axis gyro
      3-axis accelerometer
      3-axis compass
    • Bosch Sensortec BMP180 pressure sensor
    • Sensirion SHT21 humidity and ambient temperature sensor
    • Intersil ISL29023 ambient and infrared light sensor
    • TI's TMP006 non-contact infrared temperature sensor
  2. Uses BoosterPack XL connection standard:
    • Two pairs of 10-pin headers provide standard LaunchPad interface
    • Primary header (outer row) compatible with other TI MCU LaunchPads
    • Secondary header (inner row) offers additional Tiva C Series-based expansion signals
    • 2× user input buttons and LEDs
    • TI’s wireless evaluation module (EM) interface connection
