7. AmbaSat-1 Satellite – FULL ASSEMBLY SERVICE
This is the AmbaSat-1 Satellite – FULLY ASSEMBLED SERVICE
We will fully assemble your kit, including mainboard, sensor & solarboard (if supplied) and return your assembled satellite via fully tracked and traced post.
The AmbaSat-1 FULL ASSEMBLY SERVICE:
Please note: This is an assembly service. NO PRODUCT IS INCLUDED. You must purchase an AmbaSat Kit in addition to the assembly service.
We will take your AmbaSat-1 Kit and fully assemble it for you. This includes mounting of all parts onto a fully-assembled satellite mainboard which includes the ATMEGA 328 microcontroller, RFM95 LoRaWAN radio transceiver with a 700 kilometer+ range, gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, capacitors, resistors, clock crystal, voltage regulator and LED. The AmbaSat-1 Kit also comes with your chosen sensor board (see below), 2xAA battery holder for portable power plus the CH340 programmer so that you can code your satellite directly from a Windows or Linux personal computer. Full example source code, step-by-step assembly guide and templates are also supplied.
AmbaSat-1 uses LoraWAN and ‘The Things Network’ (TTN) to send sensor data to your desktop or mobile device. Proximity to a TTN Gateway is required in order to send data to the AmbaSat web Dashboard but is not required for assembly and testing.
Assembly also includes mounting of any of the following sensors onto the main AmbaSat-1 satellite board:
Sensor 01 – Humidity and Temperature
A best in class Humidity & Temperature Sensor. The SHT3X is a fully calibrated, linearized, and temperature compensated digital output with a wide supply voltage range, I2C Interface with communication speeds up to 1MHz and two user selectable addresses.
Sensor 02 – Temperature
A 3x3mm, fully calibrated digital temperature. The STS21 sensor comes with impressive performance and features a I²C address. Outstanding accuracy in a tiny package and low power consumption.
Sensor 03 – Gas, Pressure, Temperature & Humidity
A low power gas, pressure, temperature & humidity sensor. The BME680 is a 4-in-1 multi-functional MEMS environmental sensor which integrates VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) sensor, temperature sensor, humidity sensor and barometer. Monitor 4 environmental parameters simultaneously. This sensor is widely used in environmental monitoring, home automation and control, Internet of Things (IoT) wearable device, GPS, etc.
Sensor 04 – Ambient Light
The OPT3001 ambient light sensor measures the intensity of visible light. The spectral response of the sensor closely matches the photopic response of the human eye, with infrared rejection. It is a single-chip lux meter, measuring the intensity of light as visible by the human eye. The precision spectral response and strong IR rejection of the device enables the OPT3001 to accurately meter the intensity of light as seen by the human eye regardless of light source.
Sensor 05 – TVOC (Total Volatile Organic Compounds)
Designed for detecting total volatile organic compounds (TVOC). The ZMOD4410 is a 12-pin LGA assembly (3.0 x 3.0 x 0.7 mm) that consists of a gas sense element and a CMOS signal conditioning IC. The module’s sense element consists of heater element on a Si-based MEMS structure and a metal oxide (MOx) chemiresistor. The signal conditioner controls the sensor temperature and measures the MOx conductivity, which is a function of the gas concentration.
Sensor 06 – UV Sensor
The Si1132 is a low-power, ultraviolet (UV) index, and ambient light sensor with I2C digital interface and programmable-event interrupt output. This sensor IC includes an analog-to-digital converter, integrated high sensitivity visible and infrared photodiodes, and digital signal processor. The Si1132 offers excellent performance under a wide dynamic range and a variety of light sources including direct sunlight.
Sensor 07 – Carbon Emissions
The CCS811 is an ultra-low power digital gas sensor solution which integrates a metal oxide (MOX) gas sensor to detect a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and includes an Analog-to-Digital converter (ADC), and an I²C interface. Supporting intelligent algorithms to process raw sensor measurements and output equivalent total VOC (eTVOC) and equivalent CO2 (eCO2) values.
Sensor 08 – GPS
The Teseo-LIV3R Global Positioning System module is an easy to use Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) standalone positioning receiver IC working simultaneously on multiple constellations. This certified module comes with optimized RF, embedded firmware and is compact at only 9.7×10.1 mm. Supporting GPS, Glonass, BeiDou & QZSS positioning systems. Note. This sensor is only available for Earth-based usage due to its footprint and COCOM restrictions in space.
You can also create your own custom sensor as long as it conforms to our design specifications (size, power & safety). Your AmbaSat satellite provides additional connectivity pins which expose the ATMEGA’s I2C bus, as well as digital and analogue pins, MISO, MOSI and power.
Registered Shipping with Track and Trace
Your fully assembled AmbaSat-1 Satellite will be shipped using registered track and trace. International delivery times are usually less than 5 working days to anywhere in the world.
