SGP40 and SHT4X: High accuracy digital I2C humidity sensor and multipixel gas sensor¶
This sample application periodically measures the ambient temperature, humidity and a raw gas sensor value from an SGP40 and SHT4X device. The result is written to the console.
You can choose to use the on-chip T/RH compensation of the SGP40
by feeding the values measured by the SHT4X into it.
This is enabled in the Application by default, you can turn it off
The SHT4X has the option to use a heater which makes sense for specific environments/applications (refer to the datasheet for more information). To make use of the heater have a look at the Kconfig options for this application.
This sample uses the SHT4X and SGP40 sensor controlled using the I2C interface. Connect Supply: VDD, GND and Interface: SDA, SCL. The supply voltage can be in the 1.7V 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 SHT4X and a SGP40 sensor. It should work with any platform featuring a I2C peripheral interface. This example has an example device tree overlay for the WeAct Studio Black Pill V2.0 board.

The datasheet states that the raw sensor signal for the SGP40 ist proportional to the logarithm of the sensors resistance, hence it is labeled as [a.u.] (arbitrary units) in the example.
