Hardware Assembly

Now that we're familiar with the LPS28DFW breakouts, we can start assembling our circuit.

Qwiic/I2C Assembly

The fastest and easiest way to get started using the breakouts is to connect the Qwiic connector on the breakout to a Qwiic-enabled development board like the SparkFun RedBoard Artemis with a Qwiic cable and as shown in the image below.

If you would prefer a more secure and permanent connection with the Standard Size breakout, you can solder headers or wire to the PTH header on the board.

Conformal Coating for Waterproofing

While the LPS28DFW's gel filled cap protects the sensing element from liquid and other environmental effects, the breakouts do not have any coating to protect the other components from damage due to exposure to liquids. A protective coating is required for applications that expose the board(s) to liquid. This tutorial on customizing LilyPad LED colors has tips on how to apply a conformal coating.
