Interfacing Altimeter MS5067 With Linkit-One

MS50XX series is the series of altimeters Meas-Specs, uses air pressure measurement to estimate the altitude. Here I'm gonna use MS5607 unit

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Connections

MS5607 : Linkit

  • GND : gnd
  • VIN : 3V3
  • CS : D12
  • SCL : A5/SCL
  • SDA : A4/SDA

Step 2: Code

We use intersema header file which works with the raw data from the sensor and gives us data understood by us ie. in centimeters.

Also we compile and upload our own code. I have uploaded my own code (MS5607) with the instructable. You can write your own.

NOTE: Copy the intersema.h file with the libraries in the arduino folder

usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\arduino-1.6.5-r2\libraries

Step 3: Compile, Run, Output

Compile and Upload the code to the linkit one

Wait for atleast 10 seconds to get stable output with (-/+)20 cm accuracy/

    Does it save itself for later connection to the computer?
