Description

BMP085 Sensor is an extremely precise low cost sensor from Bosch for measuring barometric pressure and temperature. Because pressure changes with altitude you can also use it as an altimeter! The sensor is soldered onto a PCB with a 3.3V regulator, I2C level shifter and pull-up resistors on the I2C pins. It is completely identical to the BMP085 in terms of firmware/software.

This is a breakout board for the Bosch BMP085 high-precision, low-power digital barometer. The BMP085 offers a measuring range of 300 to 1100 hPa with an accuracy down to 0.03 hPa in ultra-high resolution mode (that’s 0.25m of altitude at sea level!) It’s based on piezo-resistive technology for high accuracy, ruggedness and long term stability. These come factory-calibrated, with the calibration coefficients already stored in ROM. Writing your own code for it requires some math, but there are plenty of examples and libraries available (see below).

This breadboard-friendly board breaks out every pin to a 6-pin 0.1″ pitch header. VCC can be from 1.8V to 3.6V; we typically run it on a clean, regulated 3.3V supply. The analog and digital supplies (VDDD and VDDA) are tied to a single header pin, but are separately decoupled. It connects to a microcontroller via I²C bus (also known as TWI, or on the Arduino, the “Wire” library).

We’ve made some minor hardware changes this time around to address some suggestions from the comment section including the addition of a solder jumper to disable the I2C pull-ups.

This Barometric Pressure Sensor basically used in Arduino and other Microcontroller IOT projects and Devices.
