The SparkFun Qwiic Environmental Combo Breakout - ENS160/BME280 takes care of all your atmospheric-quality sensing needs with the popular ENS160 and BME280 ICs. This unique breakout provides a variety of environmental data, including AQI, TVOCs, equivalent CO2 (or eCO2) levels, barometric pressure, humidity, and temperature.
In this tutorial, we'll go over the hardware and how to hookup the sensor to an Arduino. We will also go over the basic Arduino examples to get started!
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need the following materials. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
- 1x SparkFun RedBoard Qwiic [DEV-15123]
- 1x USB micro-B Cable - 6 Foot [CAB-10215]
- 1x SparkFun Environmental Combo Breakout - ENS160/BME280 (Qwiic) [SEN-22858]
- 1x Qwiic Cable
For those that need to solder to the PTHs, you will need to solder two wires between your microcontroller and the breakout board. This requires some assembly and soldering. You may already have a few of these items but if not, the tools and hardware below help with that assembly.
- Hook-Up Wire - Assortment (Stranded, 22 AWG) [PRT-11375]
- Wire Stripper - 20-30 AWG Solid (22-32 AWG Stranded) [TOL-22263]
- Soldering Iron [TOL-14456]
- Solder Lead Free - 15-gram Tube [TOL-9163]
If you aren't familiar with the Qwiic Connection System, we recommend reading here for an overview.
