BMP180 general description:
The BMP180 is the function compatible successor of the BMP08 5, a new generation of high precision digital pressure sensors for consumer applications.
The ultra- power, low voltage electronics of the BMP180 is optimized for use in mobile phones, PDAs, GPS navigation devices and outdoor equipment. With a low altitude noise of merely 0.25m at fast conversion time, the BMP180 offers superior performance. The I2C interface allows for easy system integration with a microcontroller.
The BMP180 is based on piezo-resistive technology for EMC robustness, high accuracy and linearity as well as long term stability.
- Enhancement of GPS navigation (dead-reckoning, slope detection, etc.)
- In-and-out door navigation
- Leisure and sports
- Weather forecast
- Vertical velocity indication (rise/sink speed)
