Zilog, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IXYS Corp., has unveiled a reference design that according to the company offers Zilog customers greater freedom to develop products that may require several types of sensing solutions within the same design. The World of Sensors (WoS) design board is a development platform for Zilog's series of Mini-Z stamp modules and allows customers to develop prototypes and projects incorporating multiple sensors, added the company.

The "WoS" design board includes the following seven different sensors, each on different peripherals: an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, a humidity sensor, a microphone, a pressure sensor, a proximity sensor and a temperature sensor.

The "WoS" design board ships with a serial LCD and USB serial communication—serial cables are not required. Offering multiple types of built-in wireless support and engineered to capitalize on the advanced functionality of Zilog's series of Mini-Z modules, the board showcases the interaction of these sensors—independent of the module being used—and enables even more creative projects by simply swapping out modules.

Zilog's Mini-Z stamps and boards are available for customers directly from the online Zilog Store.
