AS3935 Lightning Sensor / MIKROE-1444 Expansion board


#1

This is the place to ask questions relating to the AS3935 lightning sensor IC from AMS (AS3935-BQFTCT-ND). This device is intended to detect lightning strikes up to 40km away and allow the user to estimate how far away the head of the storm is. The AS3935 has an evaluation board made by MikrolEktronika that is meant to assist in testing the AS3935.

For the video we used some example code on GitHub from the project “ThunderAndLightning”. The code is working; however, we still have to tune some parameters within the code to get the project working properly.
