MyIoT: Infineon’s Shield2Go Boards for IoT Prototyping


Infineon’s MyIoT adapters are gateways to external hardware solutions like Arduino and Raspberry PI, which are popular IoT evaluation platforms. All Shield2Go boards from this series come with a ready to use Arduino library. This enables the fastest evaluation and development of IoT systems on the market!


The kits can be stacked together with the included solderless connectors. Develop your own system solution by combining 2Go boards with Infineon MyIoT adapters. Infineon is bundling these kits with an XMC Kit2Go controller board, a XCM1100 Boot Kit and a WiFi controller in this road test package to help setting up your system quickly. These are the MyIoT boards included in the test package:


DPS310 Pressure Shield2Go:

Infineon’s DPS310 is a miniaturized digital barometric pressure sensor. A sealed capacitive sensing element is used for pressure measurement, guaranteeing highest precision and excellent stability across temperature changes. Target applications are smart home, wearables (sport & fitness tracking), drones and accurate altitude metering.



TLV493D 3DSense Shield2Go

The 3D magnetic sensor TLV493D-A1B6 offers accurate three dimensional sensing with extremely low power consumption. Within its small 6-pin package the sensor provides direct measurement of the x, y and z magnetic field components, making it ideally suited for the measurement of 3D movement, Linear travel and 360° angle rotation. This makes it a perfect match for accurate and reliable controlling devices like joysticks, knobs or game controllers.



TLI4970 Current Sense Shield2Go

TLI4970 is a high-precision current sensor based on Infineon´s proven hall technology. The coreless concept significantly reduces footprint compared with existing solutions. It’s an easy-to-use, fully digital solution that does not require external calibration or additional parts such as A/D converters, 0 pAmps or reference voltage. Ideal for power supplies (SMPS), battery chargers, lighting applications or electrical drives.



What you’ll be getting for your testing:

MyIoT adapter board, three Sense2Go boards (pressure, current, and position sensing), an XMC1100 Boot Kit, a XMC2Go controller board, and aa additional WiFi controller.

  • Its really awesome kit
    working with basic execution and it takes some time for learning and coding stuff
    but getting nice experience in core depth of analyzing and testing kit.

    Soon to post my review with practical outcomes. image

  • female headerfemale header


    Samtec SSA series

  • Hi!

    could anyone tell me which manufacturer produce long tail, 1row, socket-headers?

    I'm thinking of harwin's M20-610XXX but single row only... exactly these as provided with Wemos board.

    Unfortunately, I've put standard female headers in the XMC2GO

    but now I'd like to put XMC2GO in in breadboard - and I miss pins in opposite side of the board.

    In stores around I have only standard - short tails.

  • Dear Patrick,


    The solderless connectors didn't fit to any board. The holes are too small on the PCB. Also the pin header was very difficult to put in the pcb hole.

  • Dear Anurag,

    please let me jump in here, if I understood you correctly:

    The included solderless connectors are intended to connect the sensor boards to the adapter board.

    Unfortunately they don't fit the XMC board.
    Best regards,

    Patrick (Infineon)

  • Thank you I will try with this pin out. I think I have some old diagram which I looked.


    It is very cheap but with limited i2c and spi buses.

  • Incidentally, it was new to me that XMC2Go runs with Arduino IDE : )

    That officially makes it (I think by far) the lowest-cost Arduino, with a decent amount of RAM/ROM, from any major semi manufacturer!

  • Hi Anurag,


    I can help a little bit, I2C does work on the XMC2Go board, but any code you run will have to use different pins, not P2.0 and P2.1. There is a suggested pinout diagram here that shows P2.10 for SCL and P2.11 for SDA can be used. I've used XMC2Go a little in the past, not much, but unfortunately not with the Arduino IDE. I used Infineon's 'DAVE' IDE, and in that it was straightforward to assign these pins for SDA/SCL.

    I'm guessing the Arduino IDE most likely automatically does that for you (or you need to assign those two pins somewhere). I am not very familiar with Arduino, but I believe (90% sure) you can just use the Wire.begin command etc., and you should automatically see the I2C comms on the correct pins (i.e. P2.10 and P2.11).


    I have an account with them now. I am in contact with the support. Thank you for the link.


    But I will post the issues here for other roadtesters to check out.


    1. The  Single Row Straight FEMALE PIN HEADER 2.54MM PITCH Strip Connector Socket which was sent with the board donot match to the hole size on the pcb. So I got new ones to fit the IOT boards pcb hole size.


    2. Two of the sensors need I2C bus. In the Boot kit I2C bus is P2.0 and P2.1. In the datasheet it says that the pins have same function on BootKit board and XMC2go board. but the xmc2go board has only P2.0 pin but not P2.1 pin so I am assuming i2c cannot be used in xmc2go directly. but datasheet of xmc2go says it has i2c on it.


    I am confused and want to ask support if there is another way to use i2c on xmc2go directly?


    Is there any other road-tester with same issue as me??
