The Symbisa Board


The idea behind the Symbisa board is to allow Makers to track and monitor elements of their personal environment. Specifically, there are five sensors in the package that measure location, light, temperature, humidity and movement. The Symbisa board, running an Intel Quark microcontroller D2000, measures 45 x 75mm, and quad band GSM radio for comms – via the cloud – to tablets or phones. You attach and communicate the properties you are interested in. Apparently there is a connection for a small e-paper display, and an expansion slot for other sensors.




This board was a part of a RoadTests & Reviews last year. 

Sign up to this webinar to learn how:

  • Symbisa sensors feed live data directly into Microsoft Excel using simple formula.
  • Allows data to flow through to larger data where big data tools can be deployed to management, analytics and learning.
  • You can create templates, reports, and apply all the analytical power of excel to live streams of data.
