The Bosch Sensortec BME680 measures only 3mm x 3mm x 0.93mm, and features low power consumption by combining an energy-efficient active mode, called forced mode, and a low-power sleep mode that draws only 0.15µA. Forced mode makes the sensor perform a single cycle to take the temperature, pressure, humidity, and gas measurements and then automatically returning to sleep. The low power operation is enhanced by fast sensor response times, and measurements can be individually enabled and disabled to consume even less power. Up to 10 temperature and duration settings can be stored for the internal gas-sensor heater to optimise the energy consumption.

The 8-pin LGA metal-lid package ensures high stability and interference immunity, allowing use in outdoor or industrial environments.

RS will also stock the BME680 shuttle board that contains a ready-to-use BME680 sensor and makes all the pins accessible to aid development and testing.
