The ZMOD4410 Evaluation Kit (EVK) is designed for evaluating IDT’s ZMOD4410 Gas Sensor Module for TVOC. The total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) measurement is one of the indicators for indoor air quality (IAQ). The ZMOD4410 Evaluation Software allows Windows®-based operating systems to communicate with the ZMOD4410 EVK via a USB connection on the user’s computer, which functions as a master. The software and additional related documentation is available on the IDT website. The EVK’s Communication Board (HiCom) handles the interface between the user’s computer and the ZMOD4410 module mounted on the ZMOD4410 Sensor Board (Daughter Board). Note: Only one Communication Board with one Sensor Board can be connected to the computer at a time. The ZMOD4410 Evaluation Kit uses an FDTI controller on the Communication Board to handle the USB protocol, translate communications, and synchronize communications with the I2C interface. The Sensor Board includes a decoupling capacitor. The Communication Board has devices mounted on both sides. The components on the top side generate a stable supply voltage. A potentiometer can be used to adjust the internal supply voltage in the typical range from 1.7V to 3.6V. Alternatively, the user’s external supply voltage can be used. The intensity of the adjacent LED is proportional to the supply voltage.
User-friendly EVK expedites configuration and evaluation of the ZMOD4410 Gas Sensor
The modular design of the EVK allows simple connection of Sensor Boards for different gas sensor derivatives and easy integration with other sensor products via the I2C interface
