Bosch's new digital pressure sensor for drones and AR/VR applications stocked by Mouser
June 28, 2018 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry's leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor from Bosch. Featuring a best-in-class temperature coefficient offset (TCO) between 20 and 65 degrees Celsius, the small, low-power, low-noise BMP388 sensor delivers accurate altitude measurement over a broad temperature range.
The Bosch BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor, available from Mouser Electronics, uses proven sensing principles to provide pressure and temperature measurements. The 24-bit device covers a measurement range of 300 hPa to 1250 hPa while consuming just 3.4 µA at 1 Hz. The BMP388 sensor features a raw interrupt functionality for easy access to storage and data, while a built-in infinite impulse response (IIR) filter minimizes short-term disturbances like those caused by slamming doors or windows.
Bosch’s BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor is housed in a 10-pin, 2 mm × 2 mm × 0.75 mm LGA metal-lid package and offers FIFO functionality that reduces power consumption while improving ease of use. The compact device is ideal for altitude stabilization in consumer drones, Internet of Things applications, vertical velocity indication, weather forecasting, health care applications, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) devices, and enhanced GPS accuracy.
