XENSIV™ Sensor Shield for Arduino

Infineon Technologies AG has introduced the XENSIV™ Sensor Shield for Arduino, designed to evaluate smart sensor systems in smart home and consumer applications. This shield incorporates various sensors from Infineon’s portfolio, including Sensirion’s SHT35 humidity and temperature sensor, enhancing design possibilities for Infineon’s customers. It enables engineers to evaluate and prototype sensor-based applications faster using Infineon microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, and security chips. The shield supports seamless hardware interoperability between Infineon MCUs and sensors, featuring sensors like XENSIV 60 GHz Radar, PAS CO2, Pressure, PDM Microphones, IMU accelerometer, and Sensirion SHT35. It integrates with Infineon’s microcontroller kits via an Arduino Uno connector. Specifically optimized for use with Infineon MCUs like PSoC™ 6, AIROC™ Bluetooth® SoCs, and Wi-Fi® MCUs, the shield aligns with Infineon's system solutions approach.

The XENSIV™ Sensor Shield for Arduino is compatible with Infineon's ModusToolbox™ software development platform, simplifying software integration. ModusToolbox assists in embedded system development by providing tools like code generation, configuration wizards, and essential libraries. Furthermore, developers can utilize the shield's sensors for Machine Learning applications by combining Infineon microcontrollers, ModusToolbox, and Imagimob Machine Learning. This integration enables developers to effectively leverage Infineon's sensor capabilities, including Sensirion's temperature and humidity sensor, in Machine Learning projects. 


  • Variety of sensors from Infineon's portfolio, including Sensirion's SHT35
  • Seamless integration with Infineon MCUs via Arduino Uno connector
  • Compatible with ModusToolbox™ for streamlined software development.


The XENSIV Sensor Shield for Arduino is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2024, with a showcase at Embedded World in Nuremberg.
