IoT HAT v2
IoT HAT orchestrates high-end components demanding in IoT scenarios. It combines sensors, relays, IO’s and an IR remote transceiver on a single board. This allows you to easily create complex scenarios without the hassle of cable clutter. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, IoT HAT will help you to develop the best in the shortest possible time.
Ingeniously placed components on IoT HAT makes developers' life easier. All components can be accessed via GPIO and I2C interfaces.

Bosch Sensortec BME680 Environmental Sensor
Measures temperature, relative humidity, pressure and gas resistance. Calculates altitude and indoor air quality.
  • Gas Resistance: Measures gas resistance in Ohms. If used with Bosch's drivers, 0 to 500 IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) result can be read.
  • Temperature: Measures -40C to 85C temperature with +/- 1C accuracy and 0.01C resolution.
  • Humidity: Measures relative humidity within 0% to 100% range, in 3% accuracy and 0.008% resolution.
  • Pressure: Measures air pressure from 300 to 1100hPa in 0.18Pa resolution.
  • Altitude: The driver calculates altitude from sea level if air pressure at the sea level is given.
The sensor uses 0x76 address over the I2C bus.
IoT HAT will heat up as your Raspberry Pi warms up in hot environments. In this case, the sensor will read the temperature, humidity and pressure above normal levels. Keeping the device upright helps hot air to escape.

The sensor uses 0x39 address on the I2C bus.
Vishay VEML6075 UV Sensor
Measures UVA and UVB. Calculates UV A Index, UVB Index and average UV Index.
  • UVA: Measures wavelenghts between 315nm to 400nm in 16-bit resolution.
  • UVB: Measures wavelenghts between 280nm to 315nm in 16-bit resolution.
  • UV Index: Calculates UV radiation.
The sensor uses 0x10 address over the I2C bus.

Vishay TSOP75338W IR Receiver and VSMB10940X01 IR Transmitter
Decodes and encodes 38KHz NEC protocol IR remote commands.
  • Infrared Receiver: Decodes 38KHz NEC protocol messages. NEC Protocol transfers 4-Bytes of data. On message receive, onboard microcontroller generates an interrupt. Then, received message can be read over the I2C bus.
