"A New Look" Scale-It Development Board for Industrial Sensing and Signal Processing

Designed by our very own System Design Center!

Scale-It is an easy-to-use development platform designed and developed by Future Electronics' System Design Center. The Scale-It board can measure weight up to 100g and show results on an OLED display. An ambient light & proximity sensor (ISL29030A) detects objects on the scale.

The platform also features a humidity and temperature sensor (HS3001) to measure local temperature and GPIO for connecting temperature probe to measure remote temperature.

Scale-It development platform features Renesas RX23E-A MCU, a Digital Signal Processing (DSP)/Floating Point Unit (FPU) compatible 32-bit microcomputer with a built-in high-precision Analog Front End (AFE) that enables precise measurement of less than 0.1% without correction. RX23E-A is also a single chip solution that could achieve maximum effective resolution (up to 23-bit) of the 24-bit ΔΣ A/D converter without any external analog components.
