Micro Altimeter Pressure Sensor MS5611 for Absolute Pressure

The MS5611-01BA is a new generation of high resolution altimeter sensors with SPI and I2C bus interface. It is optimized for altimeters and variometers with an altitude resolution of 10 cm. The sensor module includes a high linearity pressure sensor and an ultra low power 24 bit ADC with internal factory calibrated coefficients. It provides a precise digital 24 bit pressure and temperature value and different operation modes that allow the user to optimize for conversion speed and current consumption.

A high resolution temperature output allows the implementation of an altimeter/thermometer function without any additional sensor. The MS5611-01BA can be interfaced to virtually any microcontroller. The communication protocol is simple, without the need of programming internal registers in the device. Small dimensions of only 5.0 × 3.0 mm and a height of only 1.0 mm allow for integration in mobile devices. This new sensor module generation is based on leading MEMS technology. The sensing principle employed leads to very low hysteresis and high stability of both pressure and temperature signal. DOWNLOAD OUR BAROMETRIC
