BME680: Integrated environmental sensor


This sample application periodically (every 3s) measures the ambient temperature in degrees Celsius, atmospheric pressure in kilopascal, relative humidity in percentage, and gas sensor resistance in ohms. The result is written to the console.


This sample uses the BME680 sensor controlled using the I2C interface. Connect Supply: VDD, VDDIO, GND and Interface: SDA, SCL. The supply voltage can be in the 1.8V to 3.6V range. Depending on the baseboard used, the SDA and SCL lines require Pull-Up resistors.

Building and Running

This project outputs sensor data to the console. It requires a BME680 sensor. It should work with any platform featuring a I2C peripheral interface. It does not work on QEMU. In this example below the nRF52-PCA10040 board is used.

# On Linux/macOS
cd $ZEPHYR_BASE/samples/sensors/bme680
mkdir build && cd build

# On Windows
cd %ZEPHYR_BASE%\samples\sensors\bme680
mkdir build & cd build

# Use cmake to configure a Ninja-based build system:
cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=nrf52_pca10040 ..

# Now run ninja on the generated build system:
ninja flash
