I designed a breakout board for the Sensirion SHT1x Humidty/Temperature Sensor. The breakout board for this project has a SHT15 mounted. This project details a finished PCB design along with some sample Arduino sketches for demonstration.
The specifications for the SHT15 are:
- Energy consumption: 80uW (at 12bit, 3V, 1 measurement/s)
- Relative Humidity (RH) operating range: 0 – 100%
- Temperature Range: -40 – +125°C (-40 – +257°F)
- RH response time: 8 sec (tau 63%)
- Operating voltage: +3V
- Output 2-wire digital interface
According to Wikipedia, Relative Humidity is a term used to describe the amount of water vapor in a mixture of air and water vapor. It is basically the ratio of the partial pressure of the air-water mixture at the prescribed temperature.
Relative Humidity plays an important role in most climate control systems. Climate control refers to the control of temperature and relative humidity for the benefit of environmental control in HVAC and production environments.
Below is a picture of a SHT1x Humidity Sensor:
Here are some pictures of the final breakout board (Production Boards not finished yet):
The board files was developed with the freely available DesignSpark PCB.
Files and updates are available on the associated github page.
Reference the B.O.M above for a list of the parts necessary to complete the Hobbybotics SHT1x Breakout.
Reference the below schematic and layout file for component locations.
I developed a couple of Arduino libraries to support the SHT1x breakout board. The files are available on the associated github page.
|Pin||Pin Name||Function||Arduino Pin|
|2||VCC||3V Source Voltage||3V|
|3||CLK||Serial Clock, input only||D17 (A3)|
|4||DO||Serial Data, bidirectional||D16 (A2)|
