Mouser stocks Bosch’s low-power digital pressure sensor for drones and AR/VR

Mouser Electronics has expanded its selection of semiconductors and electronic components, with the addition of the BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor from Bosch. The low-power, low-nouse BMP388 sensor is claimed to have a best-in-class temperature co-efficient offset (TCO) between 20 and 65 degrees C and deliver accurate altitude measurement over a broad temperature range.

The Bosch BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor uses proven sensing principles to provide pressure and temperature measurements. The 24-bit device covers a measurement range of 300 to 1250hPa while consuming just 3.4 microA at 1.0Hz. The BMP388 sensor features a raw interrupt functionality for easy access to storage and data, while a built-in infinite impulse response (IIR) filter minimises short-term disturbances like those caused by slamming doors or windows.

The BMP388 digital barometric pressure sensor is housed in a 10-pin, 2.0 x 2.0 x 0.75mm LGA metal-lid package and offers FIFO functionality that reduces power consumption, says Mouser. The compact device is ideal for altitude stabilisation in consumer drones, Internet of Things applications, vertical velocity indication, weather forecasting, healthcare applications, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) devices, and enhanced GPS accuracy.
