Vishay Intertechnology Launches New SensorXplorerTM Starter Kit
Test Drive Vishay’s Sensor Solutions
MALVERN, Pa. — April 30, 2018 — The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) has introduced a new demo kit that allows users to test drive Vishay’s ambient light, proximity, UVA light, and RGBW color sensor solutions. Providing a USB to I2C interface, 3.3 V regulator, and GPIOs for reading and displaying sensor data on a PC, the new SensorXplorer™ allows designers to explore the capabilities of the Vishay sensors featured on Vishay’s sensor demo boards.
The kit introduced today includes the SensorXplorer demo board, which acts as a USB to I2C interface between the PC software and individual Vishay sensor demo boards. An included micro-USB cable connects the board to the PC. The USB dongle is backwards-compatible, allowing for the use of sensor boards previously purchased with the Sensor Starter Kit.
LabVIEW-based software for the SensorXplorer Kit, in addition to an installation application note, is available for download at http://www.Vishay.com/ref/SensorXplorer. Users of the previous Sensor Starter Kit will also need to download the new software.
The SensorXplorer Kit is available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks.
