Product Details

xChip Boards

xChips are a rapid electronics development ecosystem to help reduce development time and simplify making custom products as well as aiding learning. Without soldering, wiring, breadboarding, or hardware knowledge you can assemble a circuit in minutes, and concentrate on coding.

xChips are compatible with the platform you want to use and bridges are available for the most popular pltatforms; Raspberry Pi, Minnowboard, Beaglebone, Micro:bit, Pixhawk and 96 boards. Rather than bridging to Ardunio, we offer compatible cores for Arduino Uno, the CC01, and for Arduino Zero, the CC03.

xChips utilise I2C, and due to this bus architecture, unlimited expansion of circuits is possible. Limitations of I2C addresses have been negated by development multiplexers.

Because of its simple connection method, it is easy to build quickly - for prototyping and small product runs

xChips connect to each other using an xBus connector, available from RS 174-4977.

Some xChips need an xPDI connector (RS 174-4974) to connect to programming interfaces, such as the IP02 or IP03.

SG34 – Particle Sensor xChip (MAX30105)

This xChip is a gas sensor module that is based on the MAX30105 particle sensing module by Maxim Integrated Products. The MAX30105 includes internal LEDs, photodetectors, optical elements, and low-noise electronics with ambient light rejection which is mainly aimed at smoke detection applications such as fire alarms.

The MAX30105 Particle Sensor is a flexible, powerful sensor enabling the sensing of distance, heart rate, particle detection and even the blinking of an eye. The MAX30105 has been equipped with three LEDs as well as a very sensitive photon detector. The idea is to pulse the different LEDs, then detect what shines back. Based on the reflected signature it’s possible to detect different types of particles or materials (such as oxygenated blood or smoke from a fire).

The MAX30105 utilizes a red LED, a green LED, and an IR (InfraRed) LED for presence sensing, heart beat plotting and heart-rate monitoring among its multitude of uses, including Pulse Oximetry.
