Bosch launches smallest high performance barometric pressure sensor

Bosch Sensortec is the market leader in barometric pressure sensors with more than 1 billion shipped products. The BMP380 is a very small, low-power and low-noise 24 bit absolute barometric pressure sensor. BMP380 is specifically designed and ideally suited for a wide range of altitude tracking applications. The new BMP380 offers outstanding design flexibility, providing a single package solution that can be easily integrated into a multitude of existing and upcoming devices such as smartphones, GPS modules, wearables and drones.

The sensor is more accurate than its predecessors, covering a wide measurement range from 300 hPa to 1250 hPa. This new barometric pressure sensor exhibits an attractive price-performance ratio coupled with low power consumption. It is available in a compact 10-pin 2.0 x 2.0 x 0.75 mm³ LGA package with metal lid.

Applications

- Altitude stabilization in drones

- Improved calorie expenditure measurement accuracy in wearables and mobile devices

- Unprecedented precision for outdoor/indoor navigation and localization applications

- Enhanced GPS accuracy outdoors

I have used BMP280, which works well. This new version claims less drift with temperature, if I read the specs right
