The Lighting Communications Development Platform provides a universal lighting development platform for the creation of communications enabled lighting applications. The platform consists of a main board and various communications interface adapters to support in the development of DALI, DMX512A, as well as future protocols (eg. RF). To utilize the communications platform, a minimum of (2) main or (2) prototyping boards and (2) adapters are required – connected via appropriate cabling (eg. RJ45 patch cable, DMX512A 5-pin barrel cable, or DALI 2-wire).
The Maxim Integrated MAX44009 is the industry's lowest power ambient light sensor with analog to digital converter (ADC). The Maxim Integrated MAX44009 ambient light sensor features an operating current of less than 1µA and an ultra-wide 22-bit dynamic range of 0.045 lux to 188,000 lux.
CapSense click™ add-on board features a capacitive sensing module CY8C201A0 which takes human body capacitance as an input and directly provides the real time sensor information via I2C output. The board contains capacitive sensing elements (5-segment slider and two buttons) as well as two LEDs. The CY8C201A0 capacitive controller has high immunity against radiated and conductive noise. The board is designed to use 3.3V or 5V power supply. This is determined by the position of SMD jumper J1.
Bourns Model EMS22 are non-contacting rotary magnetic encoders with a Hall Effect application-specific standard product (ASSP) capable of producing four distinct output waveforms. These waveforms include 2-bit quadrature up to 256 Pulses per Revolution (PPR), Step/Direction up to 512 PPR, Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM) output with 1024 positions, and Absolute with 1024 positions.
