Minibat is a simple battery-powered carrier board designed to host a panStamp and one or multiple sensors. Minibat can also be used as a DIP adapter for panStamp and is pin-compatible with other mini-carrier boards made by the company. This means that minibat can be stacked on top of a panStick or plugged onto a bread board during the prototyping process.

Options

  • Bare board with PCB antenna disabled by default
  • 10KOhm NTC temperature sensor and PCB antenna enabled
  • SI7021 I2C humidity/temperature sensor and PCB antenna enabled
  • BMP180 I2C pressure/temperature sensor and PCB antenna enabled
  • MMA8652FC I2C 3-axis accelerometer with 10KOhm NTC temperature sensor and PCB antenna enabled
 
panStamp module not included. If you need the board fully assembled and programmed please contact us and let us know your specifications (model, frequency, application, etc).
 
 

Pinout and ports

minibat pinout

PCB antenna

The board comes with a printed PCB meander antenna. This antenna is designed for 863-873 MHz and 902-928 MHz and can be enabled on bare minibat boards by bridging L1 between the panStamp module and the antenna:

Meander antenna enabling bridge

This is only necessary for bare boards. Minibat boards preassembled with any sensor option already includes a 0 Ohm resistor providing this bridge.
