The aim of this pcb is to offer an easy way to build a reliable and compact battery powered multi-sensors based on MySensors, an ATMega328P (Arduino) and a RFM69 or NRF24 radio module.

This pcb is designed to provide the following functionalities:

  • Motion detection (PIR AS312)
  • Light level detection (Photoresistor)
  • Temperature detection (Si7021)
  • Humidity detection (Si7021)
  • Motion, Power and radio activity signaling LEDs, configurable in the firmware

The board can be powered in different ways:

  • 2 x AAA batteries (Rechargeable or Alkaline)
  • 1 x CR2032 battery
  • At 5V through the micro USB connector
  • At any DC voltage between 5V and 12V through the connector J6 (2.54 mm PIN header)

The board supports different radio modules:

  • RFM69 radio module
  • NRF24 radio module THT version
  • NRF24 radio module SMD version

The flexibility in the battery type usage is possible, among to other things, thanks to this boost converter that increase the voltage to 3.3V when the battery voltage goes below 2.7V, which is the minimum voltage required by the PIR AS312 to work properly.

The schematic and the entire Kicad project are available for download in the dedicated d-diot github repository. In the repository, here you can find the gerber files of the PCB, so you can easily get 10 boards with about 5€ using an online PCB manufacturer like JLCPCB or PCB way.

The main features of the pcb are:

  • Small dimensions: 57 x 57 mm
  • Multiple power options: 2 x AAA batteries (Rechargeable or Alkaline), 1 x CR2032 battery or standard cellphone charger at 5V through the micro USB port
  • Reverse polarity protection (Mosfet Q1) to prevent damages in case of wrong batteries insertion.
  • Boost converter (ME2188C33) to increase the battery voltage to 3.3V when necessary
  • LEDs for radio traffic, low batteries and motion detection signaling. All configurable in the firmware.
  • Multiple radio module supported: NRF24L01 (SMD and THT) and RFM69.
  • Socket for the Si7021 Temperature and Humidity.
  • Socket for the AS312 Pir motion sensor with mounting holes for a standard Fresnel lens like the one used in the HC-SR501 motion sensor.
  • Socket and circuit for a photoresistor to measure the light level
  • Additional PIN to power the board (J6)
  • FTDI and ICSP headers to program the MCU
  • Support for ATSHA204 chip (security and signing)
  • Mounting hole for a M2.5 screw
