Multi-function sensor module

The VKSensor is a multi-function sensor module on a miniPCI-express form factor card. The compact form factor means the VKSensor is ideal for data capture in SWaP constrained systems and applications in Transportation, Military, Communications, Mining and Energy industries.

The VKSensor features an integrated accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and barometer. These are presented over USB as standard Human Interface Device class sensors.

The VKSensor can be fitted with an optional GPS or CAN interface. The boards exposes a USB serial interface to transfer the data to the host computer.

The VKSensor sensors are supported natively by Windows 10 and recent versions of Linux with no need for additional drivers.
