This Featherwing is a weather station that lets you monitor ambient temperature, humidity, pressure, light, assorted gasses, and volatile compounds. All of this can be recorded onto an SD card.
The board uses 4 different sensors to monitor this information.
The AS3935 is a Franklin lightning sensor IC that detects lightning strikes and can tell approximately how far away they occurred.
The BME680 is a low power temperature, humidity, pressure, and gas sensor. All of these measurements are crammed into an impressivly small package.
The CCS811 is an ultra-low power digital gas sensor, which is able to monitor for volatile compounds in the air.
The ALS-PT19 is an ambient light sensor, consisting of a simple photo-transistor. It has "close responsively to the human eye spectrum". It converts light into a current, which makes implementation simple.
All of these sensors are combined with a SD card holder, which allows the user to record data for future analysis. Perfect as a simple weather station!
