Introducing the ST Micro SensorTile.box Pro

The ST Micro SensorTile.box Pro (STEVAL-MKBOXPRO) is their latest eval kit. It is stuffed to the gunwales with MEMS sensors, RFID, Bluetooth 5.2, wireless charging and has a STM32U585AI (ARM® Cortex®-M33 SoC) microcontroller to run everything.

A few months back I was given a preproduction sample to look at. In this video, we take a tour of this brand-new (preproduction sample) kit and run up the demo software.

Kit Features

Ultra-low-power with FPU Arm-Cortex-M33 with TrustZone® microcontroller (STM32U585AI)

High-precision sensors to gather high-quality data:
Low-voltage local digital temperature sensor (STTS22HTR)
Six-axis inertial measurement unit (LSM6DSV16X)
Three-axis low-power accelerometer (LIS2DU12)
3-axis magnetometer (LIS2MDLTR)
Pressure sensor (LPS22DFTR)
Digital microphone/audio sensor (MP23DB01HPTR)

User interface:

HW power switch
Green and orange system LED to display the power supply state
4 programmable status LEDs (green, red, orange, blue)
2 programmable push-buttons
Audio buzzer
Reset button
Qvar with electrodes for user interface experience
Interface for J-Link/SWD debug-probe
Interface for extension board
Socket for DIL24 sensor adapters

Connectivity:

microSD™ card slot
Bluetooth® Low Energy 5.2 (BlueNRG 355AC)
NFC tag (ST25DV04K)

Power and charging options:

USB Type-C® charging and connecting
5 W wireless charging
