WHAT IS DEVKIT?
Developed to discover the full range of our newest innovations, including our revolutionizing 2nd generation standardized plyon®sensor modules and readout electronics.
With five different plyon® sensor formats and types, you're prepared for all challenges. Use the new experimental proximity feature to wake up your product from sleep or monitor your application under static and heavy load using HFC™ (hybrid force compensation), our drift-free readout technology.
In addition, our onboard control panel allows you to instantly adjust the sensor sensitivity to your needs. The new readout electronics offers three different operating modes, which let to quickly evaluate, test and prototype your applications.
The plyon® platform is a capacitive-resistive, touch and force sensor based on a versatile layered architecture. It is a new approach to how physically and functionally unique sensor modules can be designed, produced, and integrated.
The resistor potentiometer on the D01 enables the user to modify the onboard reference resistor between 0-20kΩ. This will significantly change the sensor’s characteristics with regards to how much onset force will be needed and how quickly the sensor is saturating.
Switch between resistive and HFC™ readout directly on the board. Experience the full potential of a resistive-capacitive hybrid readout and how it affects onset force, drift and TrueZero™.
Next to single taxel sensors like the Square, Stripe or Medium the kit offers a dedicated pin header for the resistive Slider. Combined with low friction surface materials resistive sliding with low interaction forces can be achieved.
Connect different sensor layouts to the dedicated proximity channels and experience the impact of sensor size and layout on the proximity distance. The respective sweet spot can be found utilizing the Proximity distance potentiometer on the D01 board.
The D01 provides a prototyping interface to quickly build entire solution prototypes with an extended set of sensors and actuators, relying on globally available hardware from e.g. Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
3 OPERATING MODES
The „standalone“ mode of the plyon® flex development kit allows direct onboard interaction without having to connect additional hardware or installation of readout software.
For streaming the preprocessed data from the plyon® Development Kit all it takes is a Windows or Mac OS based Computer that can host an external Micro USB device.
