After working with an Arduino Uno at work, I am looking to buy myself a board for some projects/experiments at home. The nano size seems like a great option, especially the one without soldered headers, as it is very flexible and easy to fit in projects with limited space. More specifically, I am interested in nano 33 ble and nano 33 ble sense.
My question is, apart from price does anyone know of any other disadvantages the sense board might have on comparison to the 33 ble?
Does it consume more power if the sensors are not used in a projects (just from being integrated in the board’s circuit)?
Also, does the light intensity sensor work like an LDR (photoresistor)? E.g. will I be able to do things like turn on LEDs automatically when it is dark, based on the sensor’s readings?
