The Si7013 I2C Humidity and 2-Zone Temperature Sensor is a monolithic CMOS IC integrating humidity and temperature sensor elements, an analog-to-digital
converter, signal processing, calibration data, and an I2C Interface. The patented use of industry-standard, low-K polymeric dielectrics for sensing humidity enables the construction of low-power, monolithic CMOS Sensor ICs with low drift and hysteresis, and excellent long term stability. The humidity and temperature sensors are factory-calibrated and the calibration data is stored in the on-chip non-volatile memory. This ensures that the sensors are fully interchangeable, with no recalibration or software changes required. An auxiliary sensor input with power management can be tied directly to an external thermistor network or other voltage-output sensor. On-board logic performs calibration/linearization of the external input using user-programmable coefficients. The least-significant bit of the Si7013’s I2C address is programmable, allowing two devices to share the same bus. The Si7013 is available in a 3×3 mm DFN package and is reflow solderable. The
optional factory-installed cover offers a low profile, convenient means of protecting the sensor during assembly (e.g., reflow soldering) and throughout the life of the product, excluding liquids (hydrophobic/oleophobic) and particulates. The Si7013 offers an accurate, low-power, factory-calibrated digital solution ideal for measuring humidity, dew-point, and temperature, in applications ranging from HVAC/R and asset tracking to industrial and consumer platforms.
I prepared prototyping board with STM32F0 and line RS485 driver:
This is simple, small interface between USB and alphanumeric LCD with 16×2 characters. It is using CDC class – Virtual COM port.
Microcontroller is from STM32 cortex M0 value line family: STM32F070F6. This small “gizmo” has very attractive price and good choice of peripheral devices, like ADC, USB, plenty of timers, etc… Really nice device in “DIY-friendly” package – TSSOP20.
