The state-of-the-art BME680 breakout lets you measure temperature, pressure, humidity, and indoor air quality, and is Raspberry Pi and Arduino-compatible!
Use this breakout to monitor every aspect of your indoor environment. Its gas resistance readings will react to changes in volatile organic compounds and can be combined with humidity readings to give a measure of indoor air quality.
Want to get an idea of whether there's adequate ventilation in your bedroom, your workshop, or workplace? Set up a BME680 on a Pi Zero W and have it log sensor readings to a file, or stream live data to a web service like adafruit.io or freeboard.io.
It's also compatible with our fancy new Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.
Pimoroni's designed this breakout board so that you can solder on the piece of right angle female header and pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 6, 9). The right angle header also has the advantage of positioning the breakout away from the Pi's CPU so as to minimise radiated heat.
As well as the C library provided by Bosch, Pimoroni's put together a Python library (with a quick and painless one-line-installer) to use with your BME680, making it straightforward to combine it with our other boards (why not use a Blinkt! or Unicorn pHAT to visualise air quality in real time?)
Pimoroni's software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.
