Sensor board, or arduino shield, based on the AS3935 chip
The AS3935 has a very sensitive lightning detector with SPI and I2C interfaces and needs only a few other parts. Putting this chip on a sensor or shield would make it very easy to build an Arduino lightning detector that could count lightning strikes, log them, and warn of a coming lightning storm. Would be great for a weather station project too.

Thanks for your advice, and we will consider your idea.
There are two boards from other outfits out there, both are backordered. Both don't have any protection on the antenna or a good connector. Would be great if it could easily plug into a sensor shield.
