The main board is supplied with a choice of ROHM Semiconductor MEMS motion sensors to support the development of machine condition monitoring and predictive maintenance applications. It also includes Arduino and mikroBUST headers for easy integration of function-specific boards. The Sequana platform may also be supplied to customers with an optional Sequana environmental plug-in board, which features an array of sensors from ams, IDT, Murata, Sensirion and STMicroelectronics.
Discussing the new product launch, Etienne Lanoy, Director of the Future Electronics Centres of Excellence, explained eeNews Europe how such ready-made platforms were a key ingredient to raise the profile of devices such as the PSoC 63 for specific application domains. Tailored for environmental sensing applications, the platform offers a clear streamlined BOM, which would not be the case for a more comprehensive and certainly more expensive evaluation board trying to leverage every possible features of the device. Every year, Future’s European Electronics Centres of Excellence design between 4 and 5 new platforms, always targeted at specific applications, often with numerous expansion boards so as to make them more appealing and versatile. When designing such solutions, the distributor also takes into consideration component availability and sourcing, making sure it will be able to deliver the individual components in volume, should the prototype be productized.
