Pressure Sensor Breakout - MS5803-14BA
Now available from PMD Way is this pressure sensor board using the MS5803-14BA - a high resolution pressure sensor with SPI and I2C interfaces.
This MEMS pressure sensor measures the absolute pressure of the fluid around it which includes air, water, and anything else that acts like a viscous fluid.
Depending on how you interpret the data, you can determine altitude, water depth, or any other tasks that require an accurate pressure reading. What makes the MS5803-14BA unique is the the gel membrane and antimagnetic stainless steel cap that protects against 30 bar water pressure.
The MS5803-14BA Breakout offers a resolution range of 1 / 0.6 / 0.4 / 0.3 / 0.2 mbar. You need to solder pads on board to switch between SPI and I2C bus. Board based on an open-source design by Sparkfun.
