You may remember some of us from a thread posted last year (tinyurl.com/28zw9kf
). Last year, we launched a Board of Education with a Sensirion SHT11 temperature/humidity sensor, real time clock, and a USB data logger to approximately 12,000 feet at ARLISS (www.arliss.org
). We are returning to launch our payload once again in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, this September. Our team has decided that we would like to add a carbon dioxide sensor to our current configuration but several questions arise:
1) Will the Parallax CO2 sensor fit on our breadboard?
Take a look at the attached picture. Do you think there is any possibility of the CO2 sensor fitting as the configuration currently stands? We have discussed the possibility of mounting the sensor elsewhere and routing the wires to the board.
2) Are there currently enough I/O 'slots' available?
If there aren't enough, what are our options?
3) Do we have enough program memory?
As I recall, the most recent version of our program almost filled the EEPROM of the BS2 stamp. We have discussed the possibility of changing to a BS2e, but what would be required in order to do so?
