Bosch has stepped up their game with their new BME280 sensor, an environmental sensor with temperature, barometric pressure and humidity! This sensor is great for all sorts of weather/environmental sensing and can even be used in both I2C and SPI!

This precision sensor from Bosch is the best low-cost sensing solution for measuring humidity with ±3% accuracy, barometric pressure with ±1 hPa absolute accuraccy, and temperature with ±1.0°C accuracy. Because pressure changes with altitude, and the pressure measurements are so good, you can also use it as an altimeter with  ±1 meter or better accuracy!

The BME280 is the next-generation of sensors from Bosch, and is the upgrade to the BMP085/BMP180/BMP183 - with a low altitude noise of 0.25m and the same fast conversion time. It has the same specifications, but can use either I2C or SPI. For simple easy wiring, go with I2C. If you want to connect a bunch of sensors without worrying about I2C address collisions, go with SPI.

Nice sensor right? So Adafruit made it easy for you to get right into your next project. The surface-mount sensor is soldered onto a PCB and comes with a 3.3V regulator and level shifting so you can use it with a 3V or 5V logic microcontroller without worry. They even wrote up a nice tutorial with wiring diagrams, schematics, libraries and examples to get you running in 10 minutes!

    Nice sensor with both I2C and SPI support. Comprehensive Adafruit tutorial/documentation, although if you are using a Raspberry Pi the Python driver mentioned in the tutorial only seems to support I2C (which worked fine for me) (Posted on 20/09/2017)

    Very simple wiring using an Arduino. and easy to get going as I used the Adafruit library. (Posted on 30/12/2016)

    Great little device. Simple to integrate and fairly accurate with its readings. A must for anyone who wants to temperature, humidity and pressure all in one....

    Thanks Core Electronics for the cheap item and also the quick postage... (Posted on 20/06/2016)

    Great combination sensor for personal weather station. As usual, Adafruit have great online resources and libraries to make this sensor painless to use! (make sure you grab the adafruit_sensor headers from github, a dependancy for this sensor) (Posted on 19/06/2016)
