CCS811 CO2 and TVOC Air Quality Sensor
The CCS811 is a sensor for detecting the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) and Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs) in the air. TVOC combined with CO2 is used to measure indoor air quality or IAQ. CO2 is produced by human respiration, and VOCs come from construction materials (paint, carpet, etc), machines (copiers, processes, etc), and people (breathing, cigarettes, etc). VOCs are often categorized as pollutants and/or sensory irritants. TVOC is a roughly defined term, and we’re still wrapping our heads around what this sensor can do. Effectively, it can give you the parts per million (PPM) ..

MLX90393 Magnetometer Breakout
The MLX90393 is a tri-axial magnetic sensor capable of sensing very small fields (like the Earth’s magnetic field) while behaving as one would want and expect during saturation in larger fields (like a near by magnet). It turns out the favorite HMC5883L and other such sensors that are intended for compass applications have a low dynamic range but also strange and undefined behavior in large fields. Ted Yapo did an incredibly extensive characterization of the sensor over on Hackaday. He published his controlled experiments testing a few sensors and found the MLX90393 to be superior. The MLX903..

Particle Sensor 2.5PM and 10PM - SDS021
Measuring air quality includes the necessity to determine the amount of dust or particulate matter (PM) in the air. Dust is not so bad but really small particles, 2.5µm and 10µm in diameter, can penetrate the lungs causing all sorts of health problems. The measurement of these particles are often called 2.5PM and 10PM and they are measured in micro-grams per cubic meter of air (µg/m3). The SDS021 sensor uses laser based light scattering to detect both 2.5µm and 10µm sized particles. It has an integrated fan to maintain constant airflow across the sensing chamber. The sensor does all the inter..

Qwiic Adapter
There are already many I2C devices in the wild. The Qwiic adapter converts the standard I2C pinout (GND, 3.3V, SDA, and SCL) to the 4-pin 1mm JST connector used in the Qwiic system. As we develop new I2C products we will be adding the Qwiic connector to them. In the mean time, this adapter allows you to purchase one of these currently supported boards, solder it on, and get it on the Qwiic system quickly (grin). You can also solder the four wires on any 3.3V I2C device to the adapter get it on the Qwiic system. The Qwiic system enables fast and solderless connection between popular platforms..
