Build your own DevPack
DevPack plug-in modules allow you to extend the functionality of your SensorTag and add features including display, lighting, capacitive touch, new sensors and much more.
If you cannot find a specific DevPack to fit your needs, we have made it easy for you to make your own. Use the resources here to start your development today and get support from the community to take your idea from concept to PCB to protofype in a few easy steps.
Start by downloading the Build Your Own DevPack Guide. This zip file contains useful resources to help you build your own DevPack from scratch. Initially there will only be support for DevPack design files in Cadence. More formats, including Eagle, will be supported in the future.
