Pressure range: 20 to 110 kPa 20-bit altitude measurement (meters), 12-bit temperature measurement Compensated, direct reading (software not required) I2C communication, 3.3V power supply
Altitude Click is an add-on board in mikroBUS form factor. It features an MPL3115A2 MEMS pressure sensor which provides accurate pressure/altitude (20-bit) and temperature (12-bit) data. Resolution is down to 30 cm (1.5 Pa).
The MPL3115A2 features automatic internal data processing with data acquisition and compensation. It has a 32-sample FIFO buffer to minimize the overhead of collecting multiple data samples. It can collect data autonomously at programmed intervals and store them up to 12 days depending on data acquisition rate, which can be from 1 second to 9 hours. This is an ideal solution for smartphones/tablets, personal electronics altimetry, GPS systems, weather station equipment, etc.
The Altitude Click communicates with the target board microcontroller via mikroBUS I2C (SCL, SDA), INT and CS lines. Note: This board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, these mikromedia shields, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
