PMSA003I Board Design

by Lanmark on Fri Sep 17, 2021 10:11 am

Not sure where to post this but have a suggestion on breakout board design.

I really like the PMSA003I (Air Quality Sensor) breakout board however I am confused on the design decision on the air intake and exhaust being on the same side as Qwiic connector. This makes it difficult to mount in a enclosure and take advantage of the Qwiic daisy chaining capabilities.

I really wish that the plantower module was rotated 90 degrees so that the air intake is on the top (based on the labeling on the board).. so that it doesn't share a side with a Qwiic connector.

The way it is now I have to have the module at the end of the Qwiic daisy chain so that I can mount the board so it can pull in air from outside of a enclosure.

There is obviously lots of ways around this but I just wanted to suggest a improvement in design that is pretty simple.

The qwik connectors look like they are both on the left and right in your picture. Is there a problem with this?
