NO2 click is a very accurate nitrogen-dioxide gas sensor Click board™, equipped with the SPEC amperometric gas sensor which electrochemically reacts with the nitrogen-dioxide (NO2). It is supported by the LMP91000, a high-precision integrated analog front-end IC (AFE), perfectly suited for use in electrochemical sensing applications. The Click board™ also provides the reference voltage required by the sensor and offers a choice between the analog output from the AFE IC buffered with the low noise op-amp, and digital output from the 12-bit SAR A/D converter.

The AFE IC provides a unified platform for many types of electrochemical sensors and as such, it packs a range of different features which simplify the use of various electrochemical sensors. The AFE IC supports gas sensitivity in a range from 0.5 nA/ppm to 9500 nA/ppm. Equipped with the SPEC NO2 sensor with sensitivity up to 20ppm, the Click board™ can be used for various air quality applications, air purification control, atmospheric NO2 presence detection applications, and similar.

We provide a demo application for Alcohol 2 click on our Libstock page, as well as a demo application (example), developed using MikroElektronika compilers. The demo can run on all the main MikroElektronika development boards.
The library initializes and defines the I2C bus driver and drivers that offer a choice for writing data in the register. The library includes a function for reading NO2 data in ppm and function for reading ADC data.
Key functions :
float no2_getNO2ppm() - Function for reading NO2 Data in ppm
uint16_t no2_readADC() - Function for reading ADC sensor data
void no2_writeByte( uint8_t reg, uint8_t _data ) - The function writes one byte to the register
The application is composed of three sections:
NO2_Value = no2_getNO2ppm();
FloatToStr( NO2_Value, demoText );
mikrobus_logWrite( "NO2 value : ", _LOG_TEXT );
mikrobus_logWrite( demoText, _LOG_TEXT );
mikrobus_logWrite( " ppm", _LOG_LINE );
Delay_ms( 500 );
The full application code and ready to use projects can be found on our LibStock page.

Additional notes and information
Depending on the development board you are using, you may need USB UART click, USB UART 2 click or RS232 click to connect to your PC, for development systems with no UART to USB interface available on the board. The terminal available in all MikroElektronika compilers, or any other terminal application of your choice, can be used to read the message.
This click board is supported with mikroSDK - MikroElektronika Software Development Kit. To ensure proper operation of mikroSDK compliant click board demo applications, mikroSDK should be downloaded from the LibStock and installed for the compiler you are using.
