Arduino Tutorial Interface Temperature Pressure Altitude Sensor BMP180 BMP085 with LCD
Step for this project namely as Arduino Uno Tutorial with BMP180 BMP085 and LCD. To learn more about basic Arduino Uno, please find out our list of project HERE. Adafruit provide very comprehensive details about the BMP085. This precision sensor from Bosch is the best low-cost sensing solution 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.
The BMP180 is the next-generation of sensors from Bosch, and replaces the BMP085. The good news is that it is completely identical to the BMP085 in terms of firmware/software – you can use our BMP085 tutorial and any example code/libraries as a drop-in replacement. The XCLR pin is not physically present on the BMP180 so if you need to know that data is ready you will need to query the I2C bus.
This board is 5V compliant – a 3.3V regulator and a i2c level shifter circuit is included so you can use this sensor safely with 5V logic and power.
