The MS563702BA03-50 (MS5607-02BA) is a new generation of high-resolution altimeter sensors from TE (MEAS-SPEC Switzerland) with SPI and I2C bus interface. This barometric pressure sensor is optimized for altimeters and variometers with an altitude resolution of 20 cm. The sensor module includes a high linearity pressure sensor and an ultra-low power 24-bit ADC with internal factory calibrated coefficients.

• High resolution module, 20cm
• Low power, 1 µA (standby < 0.15 µA)
• Supply voltage 1.8 to 3.6 V
• Operating range: 10 to 1200 mbar, -40 to +85 °C
• No external components (Internal oscillator)
• Fast conversion down to 1 ms
• QFN package 5.0 x 3.0 x 1.0 mm3
• Integrated digital pressure sensor (24 bit ADC)
• I2C and SPI interface up to 20 MHz
• Excellent long term stability
A high-resolution temperature output allows the implementation of an altimeter / thermometer function without any additional sensor. The MS5607-02BA can be interfaced to virtually any microcontroller. The communication protocol is simple, without the need of programming internal registers in the device. Small dimensions of only 5.0 mm x 3.0 mm and a height of only 1.0 mm allow for integration in mobile devices. This new sensor module generation is based on leading MEMS technology and latest benefits from MEAS Switzerland proven experience and knowhow in high volume manufacturing of altimeter modules, which have been widely used for over a decade. The sensing principle employed leads to very low hysteresis and high stability of both pressure and temperature signal.
