Reference Design: World of Sensors Design Board (Z16F28WS100ZRDG)

The World of Sensors (WoS) Design Board allows developers greater freedom to design products that may require several types of sensing solutions within the same design. It's a complete and easy-to-use development platform for Zilog’s series of Mini-Z® stamp modules*, and is designed to provide engineers, students and enthusiasts a simple-to-use platform for developing prototypes and projects that will incorporate multiple sensors.

The WoS Design Board includes a world of sensing technology with which you can easily experiment, including seven different sensors, each on different peripherals. It is designed to work with Zilog’s Mini-Z modules, which best showcase the interaction of these sensors.

The WoS Board also enables even more creative projects by allowing you to simply swap Mini-Z modules, each of which demonstrates a different type of built-in wireless support. In essence, you can begin your project with any Mini-Z Module that you already have and add other Mini-Z Modules later when you are ready for these modules’ unique features.

The World of Sensors Design Board presents the following features:

  • Seven Different Sensors on Different Peripherals
    • Accelerometer
    • Ambient Light Sensor
    • Humidity
    • Microphone
    • Pressure Sensor
    • Proximity Sensor
    • Temperature Sensor
  • Serial LCD display
  • USB serial communications: no more serial cables required
  • Operated by battery or external power
  • Compatible with Zilog’s series of Mini-Z® modules and other vendors' stamp programming boards

The World of Sensors Design Board ships as a Board plus a USB cable; Mini-Z modules are sold separately. If you prefer to have everything you need to start working with your Board right out of the box, consider the more comprehensive World of Sensors Design Kit.
