Application Note
1 Introduction
The Atmel Sensors Xplained series of development boards and software are
designed to be plug compatible with all Atmel Xplain MCU boards, providing a wide
range of microcontroller performance depending on the application needs.
Atmel has partnered with leading suppliers of accelerometer, gyroscope, compass,
pressure, and light sensors to provide a range of sensor boards that enable easy
evaluation and development with a wide range of Atmel controller solutions.
To accelerate development with these sensor-based solutions, Atmel has worked
with its partners to make the necessary sensor drivers available as part of the
Atmel AVR Studio® development environment and the AVR Software Framework.
The drivers are available directly from Atmel, and provide basic interface
functionality with both raw data and calibrated engineering unit outputs integrated
into a standard API.
The Atmel Pressure One Sensors Xplained development board provides access to
the latest generation of precision digital barometric pressure sensors.

3 Description
The Atmel Pressure One Sensors Xplained development board utilizes a Bosch
Sensortec digital absolute pressure sensor (BMP085) optimized for use in mobile
phones, PDA’s, GPS navigation devices, and outdoor equipment. The sensor is
interfaced via the I2C serial digital interface connected through a common header that
is compatible with the full range of Atmel Xplain MCU boards. The BMP085 is based
on piezo-resistive MEMS technology, giving high accuracy and linearity as well as
long-term stability. It also integrates a temperature sensor that can be used for
compensation of the sensor output.
Typical applications include:
• Enhancement of GPS navigation (dead reckoning, slope detection etc.)
• Indoor and outdoor navigation
• Leisure and sports
• Weather forecast
• Altitude and vertical velocity indication (rise/sink speed)
Detailed explanation of the operation of the BMP085 can be obtained from the Bosch
Sensortec component data sheet.

4 Hardware layout
Figure 4-1 shows the physical arrangement of the Pressure One Sensors Xplained
development board.
Figure 4-1. Hardware layout.
IMPORTANT
The sensor has a vent hole to allow it to sense atmospheric pressure. This
must be kept unblocked at all times.
CAUTION
Do not insert any objects into the vent hole, as this may permanently damage
the sensor.
The Inertial One Sensors Xplained development board must be attached to the
correct headers on the Xplain MCU board to ensure proper operation. All the Sensors
Xplained development boards attach to headers J1 and J2 on the MCU boards, and a
board alignment indicator is printed on the board to provided to aid correct alignment.
As an example, Figure 4-2 shows the orientation of the Pressure One Sensors
Xplained development board when attached to the UC3-L0 Xplained MCU board.

5.1 Circuit test points
A number of test points are available for use with an oscilloscope to investigate the
functioning of the sensor. The locations of the test points are indicated on the
schematic, and Figure 5-2 shows the physical locations of the test points on the
board.
