Infineon introduces the XENSIV™ Sensor Shield for Arduino with Infineon and Sensirion sensors for Smart Home applications

Munich, Germany – 5 April 2024 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) has announced the XENSIV™ Sensor Shield for Arduino, a versatile tool designed for evaluating smart sensor systems in smart home and diverse consumer applications. This innovative shield incorporates a wide range of sensors from Infineon’s portfolio along with Sensirion’s SHT35 humidity and temperature sensor which streamlines its capabilities and enhances the design journey of Infineon’s customers. This shield empowers design engineers to evaluate, prototype and develop sensor-based applications faster by fully leveraging Infineon microcontrollers, wireless connectivity and security chips. As a result, it serves as an exceptional platform for enabling accelerated innovation in sensor powered solutions.

“We are very pleased to be teaming up with Sensirion“, said Philipp von Schierstädt, EVP & CSO Consumer, Computing & Communication at Infineon. “Together we can expand our product range and ease the work of application designers.” With the new shield customers addressing smart home applications such as HVAC will have the opportunity to develop within Infineon’s ecosystem and gain access to additional sensors beyond the company’s consumer sensor portfolio of microphones, pressure sensors, CO 2 and radar sensors.

The XENSIV Sensor Shield for Arduino enables seamless hardware interoperability between multiple Infineon MCUs and sensors as a fully integrated development platform. The featured sensors include XENSIV 60 GHz Radar, PAS CO2, Pressure, PDM Microphones, IMU accelerometer and the Sensirion SHT35 humidity and temperature sensor. The shield seamlessly integrates with Infineon’s microcontroller kits and provides convenient access via an Arduino Uno connector. As part of Infineon’s ongoing commitment to deliver comprehensive system solutions, the shield is specifically designed and optimized to work with targeted MCUs in the Infineon lineup such as PSoC™ 6, AIROC™ Bluetooth® SoCs and Wi-Fi® MCUs.

To further accelerate time-to-market and improve the customer experience while working within Infineon’s ecosystem, the XENSIV Sensor Shield for Arduino is fully enabled to work with Infineon’s ModusToolbox™ software development platform for simplified software integration. ModusToolbox provides a comprehensive development environment: a unified platform with all tools and resources needed for embedded system development. Included code generation and configuration wizards automate repetitive tasks and simplify complex configurations. The ModusToolbox development ecosystem is designed to scale with project requirements and adapt to changing needs, providing developers with essential libraries and code examples necessary for rapidly prototyping a variety of applications.

Designers can also leverage the sensors of the XENSIV Sensor Shield for Arduino in Machine Learning use cases, utilizing Infineon microcontrollers, ModusToolbox and Imagimob Machine Learning together with Infineon’s broad sensor capabilities and Sensirion’s temperature and humidity sensor.


The new XENSIV Sensor Shield for Arduino will be available in the third quarter of 2024. Infineon will be showcasing the shield at Embedded World in Nuremberg.

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
