Overview

The Altimeter Module is a high resolution (20 cm) electronic altimeter sensor. It will give extremely accurate altitude, pressure, and temperature readings.

The module includes a high-linearity barometric pressure sensor and a high-resolution temperature output, allowing implementation of an altimeter/thermometer without any additional sensors. Different operation modes allow the user to optimize for conversion speed or current consumption. The module is designed for use with a large variety of microcontrollers with different voltage requirements.  This module is well-suited for high-altitude ballooning and has been used with great success in that role.

Key Features:

  • 24-bit pressure and temperature values
  • Wide pressure range
  • Successfully tested at 120,000 feet

Application Ideas:

  • Mobile altimeter / barometer systems
  • Rate of Climb and Descent Indicator (RCDI)
  • High altitude balloons
  • Height sensing
  • Navigation
  • Weather station
  • Altitude hold for UAVs
  • IMU builds
