This tutorial teaches the basics on using barometric pressure sensor breakout.

Step 1: Introduction

Barometric Pressure Sensor Breakout Module (BMP180) is used for measuring the absolute pressure of the air around them (barometric pressure). It also does the altitude (height above sea level) and temperature measurement of the surrounding. This sensor has a usual I²C interface. There are five pins on this board, which are VCC, GND, SCL (clock line), SDA (data line) and 3.3V.

Specifications:

  • Input Voltage: DC 3.3V to 5V
  • I²C Interface
