Product description: Arduino Nicla Sense ME module with Bosch environmental and motion sensors - Arduino ABX00050
Nicla Sense ME is the smallest board created by Arduino equipped with a range of the latest Bosch environmental and motion sensors. The module is based on the nRF52832 ARM Cortex M4 chip clocked at 64 MHz with 512 kB of Flash, 64 kB of RAM and 2 MB of SPI Flash and 2 MB of QSPI embedded memory. The Nicla Sense ME features the Bosch BHI260AP, BMP390, BMM150, and BME688 embedded sensors. Bluetooth LE 4.2 is responsible for wireless communication and with the use of Li-Pol battery the module can work as a standalone device.
The board was designed for easy analysis of motion and the surrounding environment - hence the letters "M" (Motion) and "E" (Environment) in its name. Nicla Sense ME measures rotation, acceleration, pressure, humidity, temperature, air quality and CO2 levels, thanks to the brand new Bosch Sensortec sensors. Its small size and robust design make it ideal for projects that require a combination of sensors with artificial intelligence along with high computing power and low power consumption, so they can work as standalone battery-powered devices. Nicla Sense ME is part of the Arduino Pro family, making it compatible with the MKR and Portenta series.
