IP01 - USB Programming Interface
This xCHIP is an interface module which is equipped to power and program other modules via a USB A connector. The USB A connection is required for programming the range of CPU Core xCHIPS over the USB-serial bridge provided by the FT232R.
- Based on FT232R From FTDI Limited
- USB A connector for simple connectivity without the need of a cable
- Programming interface for core xCHIPs such as CW01, CR01 and CC01
- Equipped with switches that allow the user to switch serial and programming configurations
- RGB LED for programming indicators
SG33 - VOC & eCO2 Sensor
This xCHIP is equipped to sense a variety of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). This ☒CHIP is based on the CCS811 which is an ultra-low power digital gas sensor which integrates a metal oxide (MOX) gas sensor to detect a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), for indoor air quality monitoring, a micro-controller unit (MCU), and an I2C interface.
CCS811 is based on ams unique micro-hotplate technology which enables a highly reliable solution for gas sensors, very fast cycle times and a significant reduction in average power consumption. The integrated MCU manages the sensor drive modes and raw sensor data measured while detecting VOCs. The I2C digital interface significantly simplifies the hardware and software design, enabling a faster time to market. CCS811 supports intelligent algorithms to process raw sensor measurements to output a TVOC value or equivalent CO2 (eCO2) levels, where the main cause of VOCs is from humans. CCS811 supports multiple measurement modes that have been optimized for low-power consumption during an active sensor measurement and idle mode extending battery life in portable applications.

SW01 - Advanced Weather Sensor
This xCHIP is based on the CAP1296 which is a multiple channel capacitive touch sensor controller. Each sensor input is calibrated to compensate for system parasitic capacitance and automatically recalibrated to compensate for gradual environmental changes. In addition, the CAP1296 can be configured to detect proximity on one or more channels with an optional signal guard to reduce noise sensitivity. The CAP1296 includes Multiple Pattern Touch recognition that allows the user to select a specific set of buttons to be touched simultaneously. If this pattern is detected, a status bit is set and an interrupt is generated.
- Six 4 Capacitive Touch Sensor Inputs
- Proximity Detection
XC10 - 10-Pack xBUS Connectors
The xBUS is the main connection between the xCHIPs. Most xCHIPs will have a connection on all 4 sides, but some will have a connection sacrifices either for space or for other connectors, such as USB or antenna connectors.
