    BME 680 Gas resistance adc reading 0

    Re: BME 680 Gas resistance adc reading 0

    I'm not sure if it is even a help but you might consider the tape used to mask off things like gold fingers.  If your volume is enough I'm sure the tape mfg or a value added supplier can precut "dots".

    I was also wondering if putting tape over the hole in the sensor and heating the assembly might risk over pressuring the pressure portion of the sensor.

    If you haven't already, I would go back to DigiKey.   If for no other reason than so others don't have to suffer a similar issue.

    Hello,

    I actually had a phonecall with my PCBA and it turns-out that he used vapor-phase oven to "cook" this proto batch.

    As it's stated in the HSMI document  not to employ vapor-phase oven, I guess I have my culprit... Note that one (out of 20) of my BME680 apparently survived the process and is working normally.

    So I'll make a new batch with proper reflow and see how it goes.

    Hello,

    Just a last update on this thread: I got a new batch of my BME680 daughtercard (no vapor-phase this time), and it looks good.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Hello,

    Im having this same problem with my board with BME680.

    I have included the BSEC libraries, the physical sensors outputs are all good except gas resistance, this value is always 12917166, same for different boards.

    I have check in different boards (two different batches), some of this boards gas output were changing values at the beggining but after a couple of hours all of them returned a static output like the others...

    Could it be a timing problem? I would like to be sure if this behaviour is a physical problem or a configuration problem.

    Thanks
