Würth Elektronik WSEN-HIDS Humidity Sensor

Würth Elektronik WSEN-HIDS Humidity Sensor


Würth Elektronik WSEN-HIDS Humidity Sensor utilizes a calibrated and temperature-compensated digital output with low energy requirement to measure humidity and temperature with long-term stability. The WSEN-HIDS humidity sensor is based on advanced micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology and is only 2mm x 2mm x 0.9mm in size. This sensor features an integrated analog-to-digital converter and temperature sensor, which can be connected to commonly used microcontrollers via an I2C or SPI interface. The software development kit offers a fast and easy way to individually set data rates and use the interrupt pin. The small size and minimized energy requirement of Würth Elektronik WSEN-HIDS Humidity Sensor make it suitable for data loggers, as well as stationary and portable Internet of Things (IoT) applications. For modern applications, Würth Elektronik offers developers an evaluation board.
