    BME280 default calibration values

    I am working on simulating a BME280 sensor in software, I have figured out values to pass in for the dig_T* values so that the compensation formulas just pass through what I send as my raw data over I2C, however I have been unable to work out values for the dig_P* values or the dig_H* values so that I can consistently send a value that will be translated to what I want at the end. If there are any defualt values or some values that will result in scaled versions of my raw data that would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: BME280 default calibration values

    BME280 dig_T*, dig_P*, and dig_H* registers are trimming coefficients unique to each part. Therefore the best thing you could do is to copy 1 set of values from a sensor to simulate the output of that specific sensor.

     

    Maybe what you are looking for is simply the API to read uncompensated data ?

     

    First you can grab the raw data directly from the bus with this API:

    int8_t bme280_get_regs(uint8_t reg_addr, uint8_t *reg_data, uint16_t len, const struct bme280_dev *dev);

    Then you parse it into an uncompensated data structure with this API:

    void bme280_parse_sensor_data(const uint8_t *reg_data, struct bme280_uncomp_data *uncomp_data);

     

     

    The latest BME280 driver is always found on Bosch Sensortec's official GitHub page.
