Sensor Box with Shield2Go Boards
Dual Sensor Box Kit based on ESP32
This Sensor Box is an ESP32-based kit of two Sensors (Barometric Pressure Sensor Shield2Go (DPS310) and the 3D Magnet Sensor Shield2Go (TLV493D)), which can get plugged onto the dual-slotted 3D-printed BaseStation, which is the white-blue colored 3D-printable plastic enclosure. No soldering required. Inside the BaseStation you place the the ESP32-Board (Wemos D1 mini formfactor) and the Dual-Adapter for Wemos D1 mini with OPTIGA™-Trust-X on board. Find the STL-Files for your customized 3D-print and choose the shape and colors of your choice. Note: The kit comes with an Micro-USB-cable and a 3-printed joystick for mounting to the 3D-Magnet Sensor. You can optionally get the ESP32-Board preflashed for Infineon’s internal cloud or the partner’s cloud. The acrylic storage box allows to store further XENSIV™ Shield2Go cardboxes. Find the collection of all Shield2Go Boards here : www.Infineon.com/shield2Go. You can combine any of these Shield2Go boards and plug them onto the base station.
Summary of Features:
- Combination of two XENSIVTM Shield2Go Sensors, controlled by ESP32
- OPTIGATM Trust-X for hardware security of the kit. This kit can get extended, becoming an edge sensor device (node) for a TPM based infrastructure, e.g. Raspberry Pi based
- No soldering required. No programming required. Ease-of-Use out of the box

Use the provided 3D-printed BaseStation like illustrated:
BaseStation ready for evaluating the 2 sensors
Mounting the Joystick to the 3D-Magnet Sensor
Plug-in the Micro-USB cable to power the BaseStation. You can use any standard USB-power supply.
The Evaluation Kit is ready now.
You now can install the software
- Install the Arduino IDE (get the latest version from here)
- Add the WeMos D1 mini board in the Arduino IDE (read this)
- Add Arduino libraries for the Shield2Go sensors (libraries and instructions can be found here)
An example sketch can be found here.
