    BME280 measuring principle

    Hei,

    we deploy a number of BME280 pressure, humidity and air temperature sensors for meteorological measurements. Neither from the datasheet, nor from your homepage I can specify the measurement principle of the BME280 for all three variables. It is only stated "The BME280 is as combined digital humidity, pressure and temperature sensor based on proven sensing principles." in the manual. It would be of high value for us to get this information. 

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: BME280 measuring principle

    The specific details are confidential, but the BME280 uses the following measurement principles:

    Temperature : diode voltage

    Pressure : resistive

    Humidity : capacitive

     

    Note that the actual measuring principle behind the sensor doesn't really dictate performance.
