    BME688 sleep mode

    BME688 sleep mode


    Hello Sir,

    1.Can we take the BME688 sensor to sleep mode when the scanning is taking place? Lets say for example we have 3 scanning cycles and 12 sleeping cycles and we received the data in 1st cycle can we put the sensor to sleep from that point??

    2. Another things I observed that when I am using the 1 scanning cycle and 4 sleeping cycles with the scan period of 10.8s there after the scanning phase is over the overall current consumption was around 20-30mA in case of scanning and 10mA while sleeping whereas in 3:12 cycle it is consuming 20-30mA in scanning and 0-1mA while sleeping. So what is the reason for this behaviour?

    Hi Ayashkant123,

    You can set BSEC with the following configuration setting according your power consumption. For example, choose to heat every 3 seconds or every 300 seconds.

    Hi Sir,

    I am using the coffee Beans configuration exported from the BME AI studio. Lets say that I am using the coffee Beans configuration then how can I use these configuration along with coffeeBeans? As far as I understand it is like Hand field Sanitizer code example. So how can I add those  selectivity configuration with the hand sanitizer configuration. Can I get some example code where I can take the refernce. 



    Hi Ayashkant123,

    After you exported configuration file, you can test your algorithm with BME688 dev kit and app first.

    If it pass the test, you can replace the configuration of hand sanitizer with your configuration in code, and then test it.
