Mouser Electronics offers Bosch Sensortec’s BMG680 MEMS environmental sensor
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the BME680 environmental sensor from Bosch Sensortec. The BME680 delivers environmental measurement performance, made possible by the internal compensation and calibration of gas, pressure, temperature and humidity sensors. The sensor enables new capabilities for mobile devices such as air quality measurement, personalized weather stations, indoor navigation, fitness monitoring, home automation and other Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The Bosch Sensortec ME680 environmental sensor is a tiny, low-power microelectromechanical system device that integrates a gas sensor with air pressure, humidity and ambient air temperature sensing functions. The gas sensor can detect a broad range of gases in order to measure indoor air quality, including volatile organic compounds (VOC) from sources such as paints, cleaning supplies, furnishings, and adhesives down to the parts-per-million (ppm) range.
The BME680’s pressure accuracy provides precise altitude information, adds Mouser. The fast response time for measurement of humidity and ambient temperature enables new applications, such as personalised weather information and air quality monitoring.
The BME680 is equipped with both I2C and SPI communication interfaces, as well as three power modes and oversampling rates for pressure and temperature measurements that can be configured separately. An integrated IIR filter eliminates short-term measurement fluctuations caused by potential environmental influences.
Bosch Sensortec is a subsidiary of Robert Bosch. It has been providing micro mechanical sensors and application services for the consumer electronics market since 2005.
