This product has been discontinued.

This product has been replaced by the LPS331AP Pressure/Altitude Sensor Carrier with Voltage Regulator.

This is a simple breakout board from SparkFun for the BMP085 high-precision, low-power barometric pressure sensor. The BMP085 offers a measuring range of 30 to 110 kPa with an absolute accuracy of down to 0.1 kPa. It uses piezo-resistive technology for robustness, accuracy and linearity as well as long term stability. This sensor supports a voltage supply between 1.8 and 3.6VDC. It is designed to be connected directly to a microcontroller via an I²C bus.

Overview

This is breakout board for the BMP085 from SparkFun is a high-precision, low-power barometric pressure sensor. The BMP085 offers a measuring range of 30 to 110 kPa with an absolute accuracy of down to 0.1 kPa. It uses piezo-resistive technology for robustness, accuracy and linearity as well as long term stability. This sensor supports a voltage supply between 1.8 and 3.6VDC. It is designed to be connected directly to a microcontroller via an I2C bus.

The breakout board’s pins are spaced 0.1" apart making it easy to use with standard breadboards and 0.1" perfboards. The analog and digital supplies (VDDD and VDDA) of the BMP085 are tied together and broken out to a single pin. The I²C lines are pulled high with 4.7kΩ resistors.
