With the ability to attach an external soil moisture sensor via a 3-pin latch terminal and the inclusion of two RJ11 jacks for wind and rain sensors, the board allows for a comprehensive assessment of weather conditions. Additionally, the board features a microSD card slot, enabling you to log all weather data using the MicroMod processor of your choice.
SparkFun's MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller "processor board" to various "carrier board" peripherals. The MicroMod standard, utilizing the M.2 standard, is designed for easy processor swapping, allowing you to pair a specialized carrier board for your project with a compatible processor of your choice.
The MicroMod Weather Carrier Board is equipped with a variety of features to provide a comprehensive weather monitoring solution. The BME280 sensor operates in I2C mode with an I2C address of 0x77. The VEML6075 UV light sensor has an I2C address of 0x10. The AS3935 lightning detector operates in SPI mode. The board includes two RJ11 connectors for wind and rain sensors, and a 3-pin latch terminal for a soil moisture sensor.
Documentation for the MicroMod Weather Carrier Board includes a schematic, Eagle files, a hookup guide, board dimensions, and a hardware GitHub repo. Datasheets for the BME280, VEML6075, and AS3935 sensors are also available. Arduino libraries for the BME280, VEML6075, and AS3935 sensors can be accessed for further development.
Additional MicroMod documentation includes a getting started guide, a design guide, an info page, and access to the MicroMod forums. This wealth of resources ensures that you have all the information you need to make the most of your MicroMod Weather Carrier Board.
