Four basic rules for good design-in
In a world where everything becomes smarter and more connected the Internet of Things is on the rise. Due to increased demand on mobility and convenience battery-driven devices hold an increasingly important role in this. For engineers the development is challenging: it involves knowledge about connectivity, energy harvesting and management, software and sensor integration.

Keep heating sources away from your sensor.

Last but not least the sensor should be placed in an area without heating sources like Microcontrollers and ideally thermally decoupled. Otherwise, the heating effect of other components gives an offset to the sensor signal. If a mechanical solution is not sufficient to solve the issue, Sensirion also offers software based compensation for that.

More information regarding design-in can be found in the “Sensirion Design-In Guide”, which is available in the Downloadcenter of Sensirion’s website. The information in this guide should be partly transferable but not exhaustive for development of non-battery driven IoT devices and to the design-in of other environmental sensors.
