PART FINDER – Digital barometric pressure/temperature

-1-5

This is the same sensor used in the breakout board we just put in the store. It can determine barometric pressure with high precision, good for determining altitude and weather patterns! If you want to integrate this into a future project, you’ll want to pick up some raw sensors. They’re fairly easy to solder and our Arduino library has all the math worked out for you. You can even use the Adafruit eagle library which has this sensor as a ready-to-go package!

  1. Having just soldered one of these myself yesterday, I found it very difficult, because the contact points are underneath the chip and provide no access at all for the iron. You said it’s fairly easy to solder, though– is there some other technique you’re using that makes these easy to solder? Are you not using an iron?
