Micro/sys Releases Environmental Sensor Board for StackableUSB™

As embedded systems take a pivotal role in our nation's "green" movement aimed at conserving energy, Micro/sys' I2C1610 provides system designers a powerful tool in a I2C device which enables an embedded system to monitor four different environmental criteria. Incorporating highly-integrated sensors onto a compact 1.85" x 1.74" form factor, the I2C1610 is able to measure temperature, light, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, either inside or outside the system enclosure.

The Host computer receives the sensor status via the StackableUSB connector, thereby enabling the embedded system to adjust its performance to match environmental needs. OEMs will benefit by using the I2C1610 board as a simple, low-power, cost-effective solution for making embedded systems environmentally aware and energy efficient.
