STEVAL-BCN002V1B is a new evaluation kit developed for give us the possibility to test a new smart applications.

The STEVAL-BCN002V1B evaluation kit comprise the:
STEVAL-BCN002V1 sensor board and
STEVAL-BCN002V1D adapter board is used to program and debug the sensor board and supply power to the sensor board. The adapter board is powered via USB.

The STEVAL-BCN002V1 sensor board include:

  • BlueNRG-2: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) single-mode system-on-chip.
    • The BlueNRG-2 is compliant with Bluetooth 5.0 specifications and enable the usage of the embedded Cortex M0 to run the user application code.
  • BALF-NRG-02D3: ultra-miniature balun and harmonic filter.
  • LSM6DSO: is a system-in-package featuring a 3D digital accelerometer and a 3D digital gyroscope boosting performance at 0.55 mA in high-performance mode and enabling always-on low-power features.
  • LIS2MDL: is an ultra-low-power, high-performance 3-axis digital magnetic sensor.
  • VL53L1X: is a state-of-the-art, Time-of-Flight (ToF), laser-ranging sensor, enhancing the ST FlightSense™ product family.
    • It is the fastest miniature ToF sensor on the market with accurate ranging up to 4m and fast ranging frequency up to 50 Hz.
    • Housed in a miniature and reflowable package, it integrates a SPAD (single photon avalanche diode) receiving array, a 940 nm invisible Class1 laser emitter, physical infrared filters, and optics to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions with a range of cover window options.
    • Last but not least, is Pin-to-Pin compatible with the VL53L0X(range up to 2m).
  • MP34DT05TR-A: MEMS audio sensor omnidirectional digital microphone, 64 dB SNR, -26 dBFS sensitivity, top-port, 122.5 dBSPL AOP ( Acoustic Overload Point ).
    • The sensing element, capable of detecting acoustic waves, is manufactured using a specialized silicon micromachining process dedicated to producing audio sensors.
    • The IC interface is manufactured using a CMOS process that allows designing a dedicated circuit able to provide a digital signal externally in PDM format.
  • LPS22HH: is an ultra-compact piezoresistive absolute pressure sensor which functions as a digital output barometer.
    • The device comprises a sensing element and an IC interface which communicates through I²C, MIPI I3CSM or SPI from the sensing element to the application.
  • HTS221: is an ultra-compact sensor for relative humidity and temperature.
    • It includes a sensing element and a mixed signal ASIC to provide the measurement information through digital serial interfaces.
  • CR2032 battery powered (not included).

STEVAL-BCN002V1D adapter board is used to program and debug the sensor board and supply power to the sensor board. The adapter board is powered via USB.

The sensor board communicates with a Bluetooth LE enabled smartphone running the ST BLE Sensor app, available on Google Play and iTunes stores.
