The Altitude 4 Click Board™ introduces an absolute pressure sensor with digital output for low-cost applications labelled as NPA-201. Altitude 4 Click Board™ employs a MEMS pressure sensor with a signal-conditioning IC to provide accurate pressure measurements from 260 to 1260 mBar. Measurement values are provided at the digital output pins through an I2C interface. This sensor provides NPA-201 Digital Output Absolute Pressure Sensor provides low power consumption and compact size, making it ideal for battery-powered and mobile applications or any application where size is a constraint.
In today’s growing market for portable electronics and wearables with multiple parameters being measured, many applications require an accurate measurement of barometric pressure to determine factors such as altitude.
