ROHM introduces a new sensor shield, the SensorShield-EVK-003. It combines with 8 sensor boards produced by the ROHM Group along with Shield-EVK-001, a shield board for connecting to open platforms, making it easy to configure a sensor environment by simply incorporating software and connecting to Arduino Uno or other popular MCU board. This enables quick verification of sensor operation and facilitates the design of sensor devices, significantly reducing development load while promoting the expansion of the IoT market.
