SensorTag 2 Watch DevPack:

Fist and most interesting to me is Watch Devpack. It comes as add on board to the SensorTag 2. Essentially this is just a display unit driven by MCU, doesn’t not have any electronic on except display.

 Features:

  • Sharp LS013B4DN04 Memory LCD
  • 1.3-inch screen offering 96 x 96 pixels
  • Ultra-low power consumption
  • Provides excellent viewing angles and high contrast images or text
  • Display is controlled serially using SPI

 

LED Audio DevPack:

It comes as add-on board to the Sensor Tag 2. But requires an LED lens from Osram, which doesn’t comes in a package.

Features:

  • 4 high-power multi-color LEDs (lens not included)
  • 4W audio amplifier ( What-aaa? )
  • Micro-USB powered
  • For home automation and smart lighting applications

 

 

Debugger DevPack:

This is probably is the most useful and practical DevPack. It comes as-add on board to the Sensor Tag 2, and connect to PC via USB2

Features:

  • Adds debug capability to your SensorTag
  • Includes a free license of Code Composer Studio™
  • Includes pads for three Grove connectors
  • Micro-USB powered

These new DevPack can be purchased directly from TI or Distributors.

 

Stay tuned for coming review and projects based on 3 new DevPack from TI.

Note: Canadian customers beware, LED Audio DevPack and Watch DevPack will be shipped from Netherlands via DHL, which will rip you off on duties. I paid 22$ extra on each 19$ DevPack becasue they send each of them individually. I believe TI should rethink shipping company they use as DHL usually rips customers off. I already called TI about this issue. I will post an update if will be something to report.

      Hi Renato, now I was investigating how would I do it, but did not really implement it. What are your issues what are you struggling with?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the post. I am thinking of purchasing some SensorTags and DevPacks so this and a few of your other posts really help. I have a couple of questions about the Watch DevPack.

    1) Out of the box, what can you display on this screen? I see from some sources that you can display the time and some simple text. Can you also easily display all of the sensor data?
    2) Have you tried changing the SensorTag code to customize the display output? Is sample source code with examples of how to write data to the LCD available on line?

    Thanks

    Gord

      I think It displays firmware version out of the box…. but I don’t remember for sure because I reprogrammed it 🙂
      Yes I did, I tried to display actual time, but I do not have sample code available as I don’t know If I can share TI code for example on GitHub….
