This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Bosch Sensortec BME680

Bosch Sensortec’s BME680 combines gas, air pressure, humidity, and ambient temperature sensing into a small, low-cost, and low power package for IoT, mobile, and wearable devices. The gas sensor can be used to determine air quality and is able to detect a variety of gasses, while the humidity and pressure sensors offer high accuracy and the temperature sensor has been optimized for high resolution and low noise. The oversampling, filtering, and data rate can be configured so the BME680 delivers the noise, response time, and current consumption appropriate to the targeted application. Each sensor is factory calibrated and the gas, pressure, and humidity sensors are temperature compensated.

  • Gas Sensor Output: Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) index
  • Pressure Sensor: ±0.12 hPa relative accuracy (±1 m altitude)
  • Humidity Sensor: 8 s response time
  • Current Consumption:
    • Active (1 Hz data refresh): 2.1 µA to 12 mA
    • Sleep mode: 0.15 µA
  • Package: 8-LGA, 3.0 x 3.0 x 0.95 mm
