This page will assist you in learning about your SEN-GEN6-SKT evaluation board.
The NXP analog product development boards provide an easy-to-use platform for evaluating NXP products. The boards support a range of analog, mixed-signal and power solutions. They incorporate monolithic integrated circuits and system-in-package devices that use proven high-volume technology. NXP products offer longer battery life, a smaller form factor, reduced component counts, lower cost and improved performance in powering state-of-the-art systems.
This page will guide you through the process of setting up and using the SEN-GEN6-SKT board.
The SEN-GEN6-SKT contents include:
The SEN-GEN6-SKT kit can be coupled with SEN-SPI-BOX.
Refer to UM11559, SEN-GEN6-SKT board for additional details on the featured components and board configuration.
The SEN-GEN6-SKT board is a socket kit designed to evaluate the FXLS9xxxx and FXPS7xxxx sensors. The board supports different communication configurations such as SPI, I²C, DSI3 or PSI5. Before inserting a device into the socket, make sure you have properly configured the board to support the desired protocol.
Overview of the SEN-GEN6-SKT board
Refer to UM11559, SEN-GEN6-SKT board for additional details on the featured components.
The board supports the FXLS9xxxx and FXPS7xxxx sensor families.
For easier board configuration, the jumpers have been colored per category/protocol. They are listed below:
By default, the board is configured for FXLS9xxxx devices in SPI mode. However, the configuration can easily be modified using the jumpers.
By default, most jumpers are floating. Floating means they are attached to their proper connector but remain unconnected. The reference to "DNP" means “Do not populate”, meaning it can be removed or unshorted.
The following figure illustrates the proper way to insert the sensor into the socket. For proper connection, align the circle on the IC to the arrowhead (identified in yellow) on the mounting socket.
The SEN-SPI-BOX has two dedicated interfaces suitable for SPI and I2C communications, an MDI connector and a Beagle connector. The NXP MDI connector supports the SEN-SPI-BOX kit. The Beagle connector is an industrial standard and may be coupled to any Beagle compatible analyzer.
For DSI3 and PSI5 support, the SEN-SPI-BOX can be used with a dedicated NXP adapter (SEN-DSI3-ADAPTER and SEN-PSI5-ADAPTER).
Refer to UM11559, SEN-GEN6-SKT board user manual for additional details on the hardware configuration.
