Tutorial: Using the BMP085 with Raspberry Pi – Adafruit Learning System. The Raspberry Pi includes support for Python, which makes it easy to get access to a lot of low-level hardware and software stacks — USB, TCP/IP, multiple file systems etc.  This is a good thing since it means you don’t need to wrap your head around all the obscure details that go along with these complex stacks or the implementation details of various serial buses: you can focus on getting your data off your sensor and into your project as quickly as possible.  Hurray for abstraction!

Most sensors tend to communicate with other devices based on one of three well-defined mechanisms: I2C, SPI or good old analog output.  There are dozens of other serial buses and communication protocols out there (CAN, 1-Wire, etc.), and they all have their strengths and weaknesses, but I2C, SPI and analog cover the overwhelming majority of sensors you’re likely to hook up to the Pi…

Comes with our python BMP085 library and example code, you’ll be up & running in 15 minutes! Learn more


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
